Asthma is a significant worry for many people in Humble and for society as a whole, truly, 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. David Groneck has helped many folks in Humble get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our practice. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The authors found that the participants 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 regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 6 or 60, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Dr. David Groneck in Humble and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
