When your child has asthma, seeking chiropractic care may be one of the last things you’d consider as a way to ease their suffering. You know medications handle symptoms such as wheezing, but as a parent you worry about the side effects, especially in the long term.
In these modern times, you do have a choice between the drug approach and the natural alternative when it comes to caring for your child’s asthma. Chiropractic is a truly natural procedure that is not just about treating the symptoms but rather digging deeper to find a cause within the persons own body.
Are you thinking as you read this that Chiropractic is only for bad backs? Well many parents have gone on to see their child’s health improve from seeing a Chiropractor. This is because our bodies are controlled by nerves and chiropractors work their best to eliminate the blockages that get in the way of these nerves working.
Easing asthma with gentle chiropractic corrections:
Alright, so you have an understanding of what your chiropractor knows but what does your chiropractor look for, in practical terms, when he sees your child? One really important soft tissue area he will most likely examine is the diaphragm. That is the muscular partition area just below your child’s ribs (and yours too) which separates the chest from the stomach. Your child could do with a freer diaphragm and your chiropractor can help.
