Asthma is a disorder in which the muscles of the airways go into a state of spasm, so that the air tubes in the lungs, called bronchi, become narrow, impeding the passage of air. This leads to coughing, respiratory distress and wheezing.
Asthma is prevalent in 4-5% of the general population and is the most common chronic disease of childhood. Studies in several countries suggest that the prevalence is increasing in both adult and child populations, perhaps due to changing lifestyles and environments.
Asthma affects so many people due to its many potential triggers, which include exercise, allergens such as house dust mites, seasonal pollen, animal fur, molds, certain drugs, and certain foods (e.g. dairy), infection, or even sudden changes in weather.
Patients have reported a relief of their asthma symptoms due to regular chiropractic care.
