Breathe Deeply With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
Doesn't it feel so good to head outdoors and take in a deep breath of that fresh, crisp air that always comes with the cooler months? It's invigorating, isn't it? Well, maybe for those who don't suffer from seasonal allergies, asthma, or some other respiratory issue, but what if you do? Because if that's the case, that fresh air may not be so invigorating after all. And even though there are a variety of treatment options that can help manage those conditions, most of them include taking prescription medications, and we all know what that means ... unpleasant side effects. Fortunately, there is one treatment that doesn't require medication, and you can get that treatment at The Joint Chiropractic.
Take a Deep Breath
Chiropractors are mostly known for their ability to help those who suffer from back and neck pain, but that certainly isn't all they can help with. You see, by placing the spine in its proper alignment, chiropractors can help the entire body function at an optimal level, and as a result, you may feel less pain, you may get sick less often, but more importantly in this case, you may breathe better. Let's take a quick look at where a lot of the respiratory issues can start and how chiropractic care can help.
Nerves, Posture, and Chiropractic Care
Nerves are responsible for carrying signals between the spinal cord and the rest of the body, including the lungs. So, if there is even a slight problem, such as a joint restriction or nerve interference in the spine, the result can be issues with your breathing. In addition to that, one of the biggest contributing factors to breathing issues is poor posture. Poor posture is commonly seen in people who spend the majority of their day sitting at a desk. Their hunched shoulders and forward head posture cause the muscles around the chest to tighten, which can limit the function of their respiratory system as well as their ability to inhale and exhale. But chiropractic care can help. Here's how.
- Addresses the cause rather than just the symptoms
- Places the spine in proper alignment
- Supports and encourages correct posture
- Removes joint restrictions and nerve interference
- Improves the function of the immune, nervous, and respiratory systems
- Avoids the use of medications and invasive procedures
