Natural Asthma Relief | Pediatric Chiropractor in West Omaha, NE
Hi, I’m Dr. Joel Marley, at the Family First Chiropractic and I’m here to address breathing difficulties, like asthma, like COPD, like the wheezing, the coughing, the feeling like there’s a vise and the asthmatic will tell you that the symptoms of asthma feel like a vise on the chest, squeezing it not allowing air to come in, and not allowing air to get out.
That vise has been explained, not unlike this clamp here, this C clamp that the compression on the chest feels like an elephant on the chest. And maybe you’ve tried avoiding irritants so as the air comes in, down the windpipe through the bronchial into the SACS inside the lungs, the alveoli become irritated, full of mucus spasm and dilate. Now, some of the top prescriptions on the on the market are bronchial dilators that force the air sacs and the lungs and the bronchial is open somewhere air can get in and get out. Long term corticosteroids that decrease inflammation and those also have effects of either addiction or long term use of them is shown to be detrimental to the body. So if you’re struggling or your children are struggling with asthma, here’s some things you can do.
Proper Posture for Better Breathing
Posture. Now posture is described as the window to your spine. And the children of today spend more time with their head forward, but also tilted down. And then the heavy backpacks in the further posture on tech on devices. Roll shoulders forward. What this does, this creates a mechanical compression physical compression to the chest not allowing the chest to open the chest cavity to open to suck air in and to force it out. Now, the nerves, the nerves that control the breathing of the diaphragm control the bronchial spasm or the bronchial dilation exit our spine right between our shoulder blades. Now, if a spinal if a spinal misalignment exists, by correcting the spinal misalignment changes the sympathetic nerve supply to the bronchial tubes, and it can help with decreasing the inflammation crowding the space, decreased production of mucus.
Reducing the Need for Inhalers
So if your children have been maybe told that they’ll grow out of it, but they haven’t, this might be something you can try examine their posture, and the successes we have in our office with with our patients that report back to us that that they no longer need or the doctor tells them they no longer need these albuterol or these asthmatic rescue inhalers for exercise or exercise induced asthma. Then they’ll take that empty bottle and they will come over to this drug wall and they will take that empty bottle and they will throw it in there and celebrate a victory that their body is working so well that children don’t need to have a rescue inhaler or some sort of medication to force their lungs or their bronchi open.
So I hope this was helpful. I’m Dr. Joel Marley with Family First chiropractic.
