Asthma is a large concern 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 kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Luckily, Dr. Holland has helped many men and women in Downtown St. Louis, MO get support from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our clinic. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic care. The authors found that the patients who received chiropractic therapy had a 34 percent decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this report, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years old and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 6 or 60, if you have asthma attacks, 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!
