Asthma

Life can be hard to enjoy when you can’t breathe easy

Asthma is a common breathing disorder characterized by episodes of wheezing, breathlessness and chest tightness due to widespread narrowing of the airways. A cough may also be associated with asthma. Although not curable, most cases of asthma can be managed.  Simply Health can work with your general physician or respiratory specialist to help alleviate the symptoms of asthma.

We are here to help!

Our team of chiropractors are experienced in co-managing asthma patients to help maintain posture and muscle tone to assist with easy breathing.

An important focus of care is addressing the postural and muscle changes that may occur with asthma individuals. Spinal adjustments to the upper back and lower neck, and soft tissue techniques to the diaphragm and intercostal muscles are often used. Breathing exercises that attempt to improve lung capacity may also be helpful.

It is common for asthma individuals to show postural changes related to their breathing such as forward head posture and a rounded mid back; in chronic cases, they may have ‘barrel chest’. We can help in maintaining good posture that can assist in breathing.
