Can Chiropractic Help With Asthma?

In the United States, asthma cases have increased significantly by about 60% in the past 30 years, with asthma related deaths now standing at 5,000 each year. With the rise in asthma cases, more patients are seeking alternative solutions to control their symptoms.

But is chiropractic care right for you? How effective is chiropractic care in diminishing your asthma symptoms? The answers will surprise you.

According to research, the skyrocketing number of asthma cases has to do with environmental variables such as increased pollution, food preservatives, mold and even genetics to name a few.

While seeing a young child with an inhaler was quite a strange site in the 1980’s, today it is not that uncommon to see several kids in a classroom take out their inhalers for much needed relief. Asthma has become a huge problem and everyone agrees that future generations can expect to see even higher numbers of sufferers. Unfortunately there is no cure for asthma but there are ways to control the symptoms and stop it from becoming a larger problem that it already is.

Experts agree that staying out of pollution, eating right, and living in a clean environment all help with the onset of symptoms, but what you may not have known is that chiropractic care has also been shown to reduce symptoms in both kids and adults alike. Why? Because another significant reason that contributes to the onset of asthma has to do with poor spinal health.

Sadly, today’s generation is glued to their smartphones, TVs, video games and computers, and spend very little time being active. Naturally, their postures suffer, causing slight to severe misalignments in their spine.

While most don’t realize the harmful effects of their poor posture, chiropractors know very well that even the slightest pressure on the delicate nerves can cause havoc elsewhere in the body, and not just manifest as pain, but issues with the function of vital organs.

Regular corrective chiropractic care has shown eliminate spinal misalignment, significantly increasing nerve flow energy and restoring the function of all critical organs, including the lungs, the heart and digestive systems.

CBP or Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most advanced, result-oriented chiropractic technique. Patients who have gone through the CBP treatment have shown significant improvements in their asthma. By addressing the root cause of the problem, CBP chiropractors are able to eliminate the major source of asthma and help patients live a more normal life again.

The majority of patients under the care of a CBP chiropractor not only report an immediate end to their asthma symptoms, but more importantly feel vibrant, energized, and notice their overall health improving every day.

Corrective Chiropractic: Back Surgery Alternatives

Recent studies released by The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) confirms what the chiropractic community has been preaching for years. Despite the severity of back pain, there is significant hope for full recovery by means of getting treatment from a chiropractor versus going through invasive back surgery. The study concentrated on workers suffering from back injury and released shocking data on just how unnecessary back surgery may be.

As stated below in the official excerpt from the NCBI website, when back pain patients saw a back surgeon first, they were 42.7% more likely to go through with back surgery as means of treatment. Compare that number to only 1.5% of patients who first saw a chiropractor.

So what does all this mean?
Chiropractic works, and it works without invasive surgery or habit forming pain medication. According to these numbers, more than 98% of patients who saw their chiropractor experienced a significant reduction or elimination of their back pain, so had no need to see a back surgeon. These patients were then able to get back to work within a few short weeks or months and live a normal life again.

Despite what back surgeons have been trained to say or do, surgery is not the only answer, nor should it be your first choice.

The cutting edge science of chiropractic has helped millions of Americans avoid back surgery through non-invasive treatment methods – something that the medical field is not proud to admit. So why put yourself under the knife when all it takes is seeing your chiropractor?

Study Design
Prospective population-based cohort study.

Objective
To identify early predictors of lumbar spine surgery within 3 years after occupational back injury.

Summary of Background Data
Back injuries are the most prevalent occupational injury in the United States. Few prospective studies have examined early predictors of spine surgery after work-related back injury.

Methods
Using Disability Risk Identification Study Cohort (D-RISC) data, we examined the early predictors of lumbar spine surgery within 3 years among Washington State workers, with new workers compensation temporary total disability claims for back injuries. Baseline measures included worker-reported measures obtained approximately 3 weeks after claim submission. We used medical bill data to determine whether participants underwent surgery, covered by the claim, within 3 years. Baseline predictors (P < 0.10) of surgery in bivariate analyses were included in a multivariate logistic regression model predicting lumbar spine surgery. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of the model was used to determine the model’s ability to identify correctly workers who underwent surgery.

Results
In the D-RISC sample of 1885 workers, 174 (9.2%) had a lumbar spine surgery within 3 years. Baseline variables associated with surgery (P < 0.05) in the multivariate model included higher Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire scores, greater injury severity, and surgeon as first provider seen for the injury. Reduced odds of surgery were observed for those younger than 35 years, females, Hispanics, and those whose first provider was a chiropractor. Approximately 42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of the multivariate model was 0.93 (95% confidence interval, 0.92-0.95), indicating excellent ability to discriminate between workers who would versus would not have surgery.

Conclusion
Baseline variables in multiple domains predicted lumbar spine surgery. There was a very strong association between surgery and first provider seen for the injury even after adjustment for other important variables.

Corrective Chiropractic: Holiday Health Toll

The holiday season can be one of the unhealthiest times of the year for most Americans. From stressful family gatherings, holiday office parties, and dinner feasts, to traveling, lounging in the lazy chair, and countless hours spent at the mall – it can all add tremendous amounts of emotional and physical stress to our bodies.

Studies show that Americans are prone to disease, fatigue, pain, and depression between mid-November and the start of the New Year. That’s why five of the top ten New Year’s resolutions involve getting healthier and happier.

Unfortunately, most people don’t realize what a HUGE role a healthy spine plays in the overall health and wellness of their minds and bodies; otherwise they would take better care of it. Misalignments in the spine – due to poor posture lounging in your lazy chair, gaining an extra 5-10 pounds eating holiday meals, carrying countless boxes and bags throughout the mall, or lifting your nieces and nephews – can exert excessive and dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spine.

Excessive pressure on the delicate nerves, diminish the flow of vital nerve energy from reaching your organs, creating pain, disease, dysfunction, and fatigue.

You can think of your spine and nervous system as the holiday lights on your house. Now imagine a rat, mouse, or gopher taking a bite out of a section of wiring, cutting electricity to half of your masterpiece. That’s exactly what happens to your organs when misalignments in the spine cut nerve energy from reaching them; they go into a state of dysfunction and eventually disease.

Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP – the most scientific and researched corrective chiropractic care – aims to eliminate nerve interference by realigning the spine back to its normal shape.

Corrective Chiropractic: The Source of Fatigue

Every day, millions of Americans suffer from lack of energy and fatigue. Unfortunately, most people resort to taking over the counter or prescription medication, drinking coffee or highly caffeinated beverages, or calling-in sick to school / work just to catch up on much needed rest.

Over the past decade, major beverage companies have capitalized on this trend by producing and marketing a wide range of highly sugary and caffeinated energy drinks to “help” kids, teens, and adults cope with fatigue. Aside from the obvious side effects such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even addiction, energy drinks dangerously mask the root cause of fatigue, and the disease or condition that created it in the first place.

Giving your tired body caffeinated energy beverages for a temporary boost is like jump-starting your old car battery with the help of a tow truck. Sooner or later you have to look under the hood and buy a new battery.

The body’s life energy source is the nervous system – responsible for facilitating millions of daily functions throughout our bodies, including movement of the limbs, digestion, hormone regulation, heartbeat, and even the health of our vital organs.

Unfortunately, poor posture, accidents, injuries, and even birth trauma shifts the spine out of alignment, putting unnecessary and often dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves in the neck and back. Nerve interference therefore cuts down vital nerve flow from reaching your organs, leading to fatigue, pain, organ dysfunction, and eventually disease.

Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP – the most scientific and researched corrective chiropractic care – aims to eliminate nerve interference by realigning the spine back to its normal shape. The majority of patients under the care of a CBP chiropractor not only report an immediate end to their neck or back pain, but more importantly feel vibrant, energized, and notice their overall health improving every day.

Corrective Chiropractic: More Than Just Pain Relief

Most Americans think of chiropractors only as neck and back pain relief specialists. Whether you have been involved in a car accident, injured yourself lifting heavy boxes, or experienced tightness in the back due to poor postural habits at work – a visit to a chiropractor for an adjustment usually provides much needed instant pain relief.

But what if pain relief was just the tip of the iceberg? What if we told you that chiropractic care can actually boost your immune system, eliminate dozens of diseases from the source, energize your body, add years to your life, and promote exceptional health and wellness?

Simply put, the nervous system is responsible for every function of the human body. From movement, blinking, and heartbeat, to regulation of hormones, breathing, and vision – it’s incredible just how huge of a role our nerves play in keeping us alive and healthy.

So what happens when these delicate nerves are exerted pressure on?

Unfortunately poor posture, accidents, injuries, and even birth trauma put excessive and dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves in the back and neck, leading to diminished nerve flow to the limbs and vital organs. If left untreated, diminished nerve energy will lead to pain, fatigue, organ dysfunction and eventually disease.

Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP – one of the most advanced and scientific chiropractic methods – aims to realign the spine back to health, while taking pressure off the nerves. Patients under the care of a CBP chiropractor feel an immediate end to their pain, but more importantly experience vitality, feeling of wellness, and renewed energy.

Corrective Chiropractic: An End to Pain and Disease

With more and more people working long hours behind their computers, it’s no surprise that each year millions of Americans turn to their chiropractors, medical doctors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists to help alleviate their nagging neck and back problems.

Unfortunately however, those seeking medical intervention, massage therapy, or acupuncture as the means to eliminate their pain will only achieve temporary relief, leaving the root cause of the problem unaddressed.

Spinal misalignment as a result of poor posture, accidents, injuries, or even birth trauma put unnecessary, excessive, and often dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves flowing out of the spine. Without proper realignment of the spine, the same nerve interference responsible for back or neck pain will also cause vital organs to dysfunction and go into a state of disease.

That’s why most people with back and neck problems, report having other health conditions such as fatigue, headaches, migraines, allergies, indigestion / GERD, asthma, trouble sleeping, and immune system weakness.

Correcting spinal misalignments therefore eliminates excessive and dangerous pressure on the nerves, and restores vital nerve flow to the limbs and organs. Uninterrupted nerve flow promotes healing and proper function of the organs, putting patients on the road to exceptional health.

Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP, is the most researched, scientific, and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique. CBP aims to realign the spine back to health, while restoring vital nerve energy to the limbs and organs. Patients under corrective care report not only an end to their pain and discomfort, but more importantly a sense of revitalization, energy, and wellness.

Corrective Chiropractic: Misalignments Cause Health Issues

Many of us have experienced computer and electronic device malfunction dozens of times throughout our lives; whether the monitor fails to turn on when the computer does, the router stops sending signals to our devices, or the speakers going mute in the middle of our favorite podcast.

Whether you are a novice or professional, the first thing we always check for are loose connections or wires coming in and out of our devices. As a matter of fact over 98% of the time, tightening loose connections and wires restores electricity, internet, or audio.

The human body – much like the computer and device relationship – is controlled by vital nerve energy coming from the brain. Nerve energy is responsible for the function of our organs, movement of our limbs, and our overall health, energy, and immunity.

Therefore, spinal misalignments as a result of injuries, accidents, or even poor posture put excessive pressure on the spinal cord and all the delicate nerves coming out of it.

Nerve interference greatly diminishes nerve energy from reaching our limbs and organs – and just like our electronic devices – leads to organ dysfunction, pain, fatigue, and disease.

Corrective chiropractic care through a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) aims to realign the spine back to health, while restoring vital nerve energy to the limbs and organs. Patients under corrective care report not only an end to their pain and discomfort, but more importantly a sense of revitalization, energy, and wellness.

Corrective Chiropractic: The Safer Alternative to the Flu Shot

Right around this time of the year, medical doctors urge their patients to vaccinate against the flu. While some patients immediately roll up their sleeves and watch the nurse administer a small dose of virus into their bodies in hopes of avoiding disease, others question if vaccination is really safe and effective; and if not, what is the safest alternative.

Chiropractic care has long been shown to strengthen the immune system, and allow the body’s own defense mechanism to fight diseases. During the 1918 flu pandemic for example, millions of people lost their lives to the H1N1 influenza virus. Data gathered a few months later pointed to one interesting statistic; those who sought chiropractic care had a dramatically lesser chance of becoming sick, staying sick, or dying from the flu than those treated medically.

Why Chiropractic Care Works

The nervous system is responsible for every function in the body; from blinking, breathing, digestion and walking, to healing injuries and fighting disease. Therefore any misalignment in the spine will put unnecessary and dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves, causing nerve interference. Without proper nerve energy, the body becomes weak, diseased, and prone to illness.

Corrective chiropractic care through a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® aims to realign the spine back to its optimal shape, eliminating nerve interference, and promoting healthy nerve flow back to the limbs and organs. The result is a much stronger immune system, healthier organ function, renewed sense of health and wellness, and of course an end to back and neck pain.

If you or a loved one is experiencing frequent colds and flus, weak immune system, or is considering the flu shot in hopes of avoiding influenza, contact your local chiropractor specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics.

Corrective Chiropractic: Poor Posture and Disease Go Hand in Hand

More and more young adults are complaining of back pain brought on by poor posture than ever before. Their complaints are directly attributed to their constant use of mobile phones, handheld gaming gadgets, and laptops.

In England, a recent study showed that 84% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 have started experiencing back pain as a result of poor “iPosture”.

Back pain in young adults often doesn’t go away by itself especially if healthy lifestyle and postural habits aren’t implemented. Unfortunately with the rise in the popularity of virtual social communities, virtual friends, and even virtual schools and workplaces, the next generation is on pace to have the highest rate of disease than any other generation in the modern era.

Aside from muscular pain, poor posture and spinal misalignments put unnecessary and dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves that run from the brain to the rest of the body. Nerve interference translates to diminished nerve energy reaching vital organs, creating dysfunction and eventually disease throughout the body.

Simply changing lifestyle and postural habits AFTER the damage has been done isn’t going to bring your spine back into healthy alignment; nor will it reverse the disease process in your body. No matter how many times you remind yourself to sit up straight, get a massage, or visit a chiropractor, the shape of your spine will not correct itself, and therefore risk for disease will not diminish.

The ONLY way to realign the spine back to health and promote healthy and healing nerve flow to the limbs and organs is through corrective chiropractic care.

Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) – one of the most researched, scientific, and results-oriented corrective care techniques – has been shown to dramatically transform the health and lives of millions of people around the world. By carefully realigning the spine back to its normal “S” shaped curvature, nerve flow is restored to the body.

Those under corrective chiropractic care experience immediate relief of their neck pain, back pain, and headaches. After a few short treatments, patients report feeling much more energetic, healthier, and see an end to diseases they once thought was part of getting old.

Corrective Chiropractic: Eliminate Back Pain and Disease from the Source

How many of you have stopped in the middle of your walk, hike, or run, and taken off your shoe just to let loose a tiny pebble that is irritating your foot? It wouldn’t make sense to take painkillers, numbing agents, or muscle relaxants if taking out the tiny pebble would alleviate the irritation for good, right?

So why is it acceptable to cover up your fatigue, migraines, headaches, back pain, acid reflux, or even high blood pressure with medication, rather than eliminating them from the source?

The source of most of these conditions originates in the nervous system. Every cell, organ, and limb is dependent on vital nerve energy to keep them functioning at their optimal level. If this nerve energy in interrupted or diminished due to spinal misalignments, the organs will go into a state of dysfunction and eventually disease.

If you have a headache, chances are that a misalignment in your neck is contributing to your misery, rather than a lack of Ibuprofen in your diet. If you are suffering from acid reflux, chances are that your nerves controlling your stomach function are being exerted pressure on in your mid back, rather than your stomach needing aluminum carbonate.

Chiropractic BioPhysics® – one of the most scientific and researched corrective care techniques – aims to realign the spine back to its normal curvature, therefore eliminating pressure on the delicate nerves that send vital nerve energy to our limbs and organs. Once the spine is in alignment, nerve interference is eliminated, returning the body back into a state of health.

If you never take out the annoying pebble in your shoe, what do you think will happen to your foot after a few months of walking? If you never address the root cause of your headache, back pain, or acid reflux, what do you think will happen 5 years from now? Contact your Chiropractic BioPhysics® trained chiropractor today and learn how you can eliminate the source of your pain and disease.
