Upper cervical care can indeed help with asthma. Your brain stem controls breathing. The delicate nerves in this area are in charge of health, well being and function of your lungs and bronchial tubes, and air passages. In asthma, the bronchial tubes constrict and breathing becomes very difficult for a person and there’s a lot of theories. However, the most recent research says the constriction of the bronchial tubes are neurologically related, and comes from your brain stem, which controls all vital functions — breathing, your heart, everything vital.
Misalignments and the Lungs
Any misalignment of your top vertebrae will choke off your brain stem and will cause an imbalance of the nervous system. When there’s an imbalance of the nervous system, the communication line to the lungs gets interrupted. When that’s interrupted, we get bronchial constriction or bronchial dilation — we get one or the other. An asthmatic has dilation, they don’t have such a hard time breathing but if your bronchial tubes are open big when they’re not supposed to be, that can also be a problem. There’s more air and more stuff getting into your lungs.
The bronchial constriction is an asthmatic problem. We want to restore normal balance to the upper cervical spine so that the bronchial tubes open and close when they’re supposed to. When you’re resting, the bronchial tubes constrict and when you’re exercising, your bronchial tubes dilate. If there’s a mis-communication, if there’s an atlas subluxation, it does the opposite. That’s the problem with asthmatics. Chiropractic care has helped numerous children and adults with asthma and they have gotten great results. I say that personally, I say that professionally. Upper cervical chiropractic care has a great effect on asthmatic suffers.
