Asthma is a big concern for many people in Humble and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Dr. Groneck has helped many folks in Humble get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our clinic. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this article, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was finished.
So, whether you're 6 or 60, if you have symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Groneck in Humble and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
