Studies show Chiropractic improves quality of life and decreases asthma symptoms in young folks by 34%. What if that was true for older individuals with breathing issues?
A study, published in the journal J.M.P.T., found “preliminary evidence that chiropractic adjustments may have the potential to benefit lung function in patients with COPD who are older than 65 years.”
According to PubMed Health:
“Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most common lung diseases. It makes it difficult to breathe. There are two main forms of COPD:
Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus and Emphysema which invlves destructions of the lungs over time. Most people with COPD have a combination of both conditions.”
“These are exciting finding because COPD has no cure, and it seems chiropractic can safely alleviate suffering for this large group of individuals,” says Dr. Cohen of ProActive Chiropractic in the Financial District of San Francisco. Dr. Cohen has had great success helping children with asthma through a combination of chiropractic adjustments and nutrition. He is watching this growing body of research as it unfolds so if you know anyone suffering from asthma or COPD looking for non-medical alleviation of symptoms, contact ProActive Chiropractic for a risk-free consultation.
