Approximately 1 in 12 adults are diagnosed with asthma, and that rate is even higher for children as 1 in 10 are reported as having this scary and sometimes even deadly breathing condition. We have many Seattle, WA parents bring their children into our office to see Dr. Alys Smith, DC for asthma relief, and we've had success in relieving the symptoms.
While an asthma attack is definitely a good reason to visit the emergency room, regular chiropractic care may often improve asthma symptoms and severity, potentially making the last-minute hospital trips a thing of the past.
When combined with a medical management program, chiropractic care has been found to reduce asthma severity in as little as just three months of treatment...especially for children with this chronic condition. This means possible less reliance on an inhaler and more enjoyment while participating in activities that you enjoy. It also means possible fewer high-speed trips to the ER in the hopes that you'll get there "fast enough," which is a bonus in anyone's book.
If you or your child suffers from asthma symptoms, visit us in Seattle, WA to see if Dr. Alys Smith, DC can help. Our office number is (206) 682-1460.
