Asthma is a significant worry for many people in Downtown St. Louis, MO 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. Thankfully, Dr. Holland has helped many people in Downtown St. Louis, MO get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific research verifies what we see in our office. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The researchers reported 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 report, 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, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 7 or 70, if you have asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Holland in Downtown St. Louis, MO and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
