Asthma is a significant worry for many people in Shawnee 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 kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Dr. Isom has helped many folks in Shawnee get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature confirms what we see in our office. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this paper, the 36 patients 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 care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was finished.
So, whether you're 8 or 80, if you have symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Isom in Shawnee and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
