Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. The airways are tubes that carry air into and out of your lungs. People who have asthma have inflamed airways. The inflammation makes the airways swollen and very sensitive. Asthma affects people of all ages, but it most often starts during childhood.
Asthma has no cure. Even when you feel fine, you still have the disease and it can flare up at any time. Many manage this disease with chiropractic care in addition to their medications prescribed. In studies, chiropractic care has been shown to help balance the immune system and relieve asthma symptoms.
Asthma causes recurring periods of the following:
- Wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe)
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
