West New York asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a serious issue for many people in West New York and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Dr. Marsh has helped many people in West New York get relief from asthma symptoms.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Asthma

The scientific literature confirms what we see in our office. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this paper, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.

After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
