Allergies & Asthma

Are You Suffering From Allergies or Asthma?

Many individuals who have asthma also contend with allergies, although these are distinct conditions. Allergens such as pollen, mold, animal dander, and dust mites can exacerbate asthma symptoms by increasing inflammation in the airways and heightening their sensitivity.

Misalignments in the uppermost bones of the neck can disrupt the normal functioning of the brainstem and respiratory center. Seeking an upper cervical specific correction at Charlotte Family Chiropractic clinic could significantly impact your current condition.

A published report has documented significant improvements in asthma patients, with outcomes ranging from 87% to 100% improvement while receiving upper cervical chiropractic care.

The Brainstem & Breathing

The nervous system serves as a sophisticated communication network that regulates and coordinates the body's essential functions, including the respiratory system and lungs.

For instance, activities like climbing stairs, running, swimming, or biking occur seamlessly without conscious thought about breathing. This is because the respiratory center, located in the brain stem, adjusts breathing rates to meet the body's demands, ensuring stable oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, even during vigorous exercise.

Asthma affects both the lungs and the immune system and has emerged as one of the most prevalent and costly illnesses in the United States. Approximately 17 million Americans grapple with asthma, with an annual economic burden exceeding $13 billion.

 

Asthma-related hospitalizations surpass those of any other childhood ailment, with affected children missing over 10 million school days annually. Tragically, nearly 5000 lives are lost to asthma-related causes each year, contributing to its rising mortality rate.

Despite its common occurrence, asthma is a complex condition. During an asthma attack, the airways constrict and become obstructed due to a combination of muscle spasms, inflammation, and excessive mucus production.

 

Symptoms, which vary among individuals, encompass wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and chronic coughing.

Asthma attacks can be triggered by various factors that inflame the airways, including irritants such as dust mites, animal dander, pollen, mold, pollution, smoke, exercise, exposure to cold air, or intense emotions.

KCSC Procedure & Asthma & Allergies

Head and neck injuries frequently afflict individuals with asthma and allergies. Such injuries can lead to misalignments in the upper spine, disrupting the crucial communication between the brain and the body.

 

This disruption can adversely affect airway and lung function.

The KCSC Procedure is specifically designed to address misalignments in the upper spine, thereby restoring normal communication between the brain and the body.

 

As a result, patients often experience sustained improvements and reduced reliance on medication for managing their conditions.
