Chiropractic Treatment for Asthma
By Sara Butler
Many people look forward to spring. But for some people, spring is pure torture. If you suffer from allergies and spring is a wheezy, cough-induced misery, then you may have one type of asthma. That's right, there are more than one type of asthma and no matter which type you may have, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are here to help.
One of the most common triggers for asthma is inhaling environmental allergens that set you off. The most common types of allergens that can induce asthma symptoms to include:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
If you have an allergy to any of these common allergens, then they induce a response from the immune system that makes you miserable. It can cause you to cough, wheeze, and have other symptoms associated with asthma. If you think you have asthma, bring it to the attention of your chiropractor today. They can help to treat it in conjunction with the treatment you receive from an immunologist or allergist.
Have you ever been going strong during your cardio routine when you felt as if maybe you were just a little bit too wheezy? Then you may suffer from exercise-induced bronchoconstriction or EIB.
Symptoms of this condition include coughing, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and wheezing when participating in exercise. It's not a sign that your workout is working you out, but instead a sign that something isn't right. Make sure to talk to your chiropractor about it today if you feel you have this condition -- it should not be ignored.
No matter what type of asthma you have, it can be nocturnal. If you wake up at any point in the night wheezing, coughing, or with chest pain, then you need to find an effective treatment in the long term. Every type of asthma should be taken seriously and you should work with a healthcare provider to treat it.
