Asthma is a serious worry for many people in Kettering and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Thankfully, Dr. Poelking has helped many folks in Kettering get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific research confirms what we see in our practice. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The authors reported that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this article, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 7 or 70, if you have symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Poelking in Kettering and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
