As a chiropractor, I am often asked about the benefits of spinal adjustments beyond relieving back and neck pain. One area that many people don't realize can be improved with chiropractic care is breathing. In fact, there is a strong link between spinal health, nervous system function, and lung function.
When the spine is misaligned, it can interfere with nerve impulses traveling to and from the lungs. This can cause respiratory muscles to work harder than they need to, resulting in restricted breathing and reduced lung function. Chiropractic adjustments can help correct these misalignments and improve nervous system function, allowing for better communication between the brain and lungs.
Research has shown that chiropractic care can be an effective complementary therapy for respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD. In one study, patients with asthma who received chiropractic care had improved lung function and reported less reliance on inhalers and other medications. Another study found that patients with COPD who received chiropractic care had reduced dyspnea (shortness of breath) and improved quality of life.
Chiropractic care can also help with stress relief and relaxation, which can further benefit respiratory function. When the body is in a state of stress, breathing can become shallow and rapid. By reducing stress and promoting relaxation, chiropractic care can help improve breathing patterns and overall lung function.
It's important to note that chiropractic care should not be used as a sole treatment for respiratory conditions. However, as a complementary therapy, it can be a valuable addition to a comprehensive treatment plan.
If you are struggling with respiratory issues or simply want to improve your breathing, consider adding chiropractic care to your wellness routine. With spinal adjustments, nervous system support, and stress relief, chiropractic care can help you breathe easier and feel better.
