Asthma is a significant concern for many people in Port Clinton, OH and for society as a whole, really, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Bridgett Urban, DC has helped many folks in Port Clinton, OH get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our practice. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The authors reported that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this report, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic adjustments, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was finished.
