It is often assumed that chiropractic care is only for back pain or neck pain. However, since chiropractic adjustments affect the nervous system, any body tissue which is affected by the nerves can potentially be affected by the chiropractic adjustment.
Asthma is a condition of the lung airways, but the lungs have extensive innervation from a wide variety of nerves. Go to our asthma page to learn more about the background and scope of asthma today, as well as to learn about how chiropractic can help non-musculoskeletal conditions like asthma.
There is a collection of studies which indicate a positive subjective and objective benefit to chiropractic care for asthma patients, and not a single adverse reaction among nearly 6000 patients. In another study, chiropractors learned that chiropractic adjustments were causing positive changes in the blood levels of IgA (an immunoglobulin which reacts to allergens) and cortisol (which suppresses the immune system).
