Asthma In Kids The Epidemic
Asthma in kids the epidemic in our society is steadily on the rise and has been for some time. Did you know that approximately 6.8 million kids in the United States suffer from chronic asthma. Asthma in kids is not something that usually makes the front headlines, yet is a daily struggle for those who have to endure it and the struggle is real. For those parents who have children with asthma, probably the research has been done on ways to improve their “condition”. We understand that the airways are under constant strain by either a spasm or a hypersensitivity to something in the environment. Treating the symptoms of asthma in kids usually is found with respiratory inhalers or suppressing all symptoms together by administering steroid use. These methods might be necessary for severe instances or certain circumstances, yet we are still suppressing a child’s ability to thrive and develop. Need to understand that the body is trying to adapt and to heal from something that is disturbing the ultimate functionality of breathing.
Asthma in kids and everyone else is triggered for a specific reason. Specifically the lower portion of the neck directly regulates and controls the airways and how they function. These nerves are sending information for cells, tissues, and everything that those airways need. If and when a subluxation in the spine occurs at a specific level in the neck it disrupts the entire functioning of the respiratory system. A subluxation is when one or more vertebrae place undo stress upon a nerve creating an entire central nerve system dysfunction. This can lead to the airways being under constant strain to produce air and efficient amounts of it. As a consequence asthma in kids can manifest and continue to plague the quality of life. Now, we are not saying that we are going to cure asthma in kids. What chiropractic allows is to specifically locate and adjust subluxations, in return allowing the body to heal and adapt to the stress. By restoring proper communication via the central nerve system the body has no other option but to correctly process and perceive all in-coming and out-going information. Get those nerves checked!
