Asthma is a significant problem for many people in Massillon 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 United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Luckily, Dr. Haycock has helped many people in Massillon get help from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature verifies what we see in our practice. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic therapy. The researchers reported that the patients who received chiropractic care had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this report, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years old and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 7 or 70, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Dr. Haycock in Massillon and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
