Asthma is a serious worry for many people in West Palm Beach 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 United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Dr. Dennis has helped many people in West Palm Beach get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our clinic. For instance, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The researchers found that the participants 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 kids. In this article, the 36 participants 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 adjustments, 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 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 symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Dennis in West Palm Beach and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
