Chiropractic care for back and neck pain is well-accepted even in the medical community. Recently, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has recommended chiropractic care as an early recommendation for back pain. Chiropractic is also recommended for the care of acute low back pain by the United States Agency for Health Care Policy and Research.
But were you aware that there is research showing benefits for patients with illnesses such as asthma, vertigo, and colic?
That is what a group of researchers discovered in 2007, when they published a review of 179 papers addressing 50 different non-musculoskeletal conditions. They concluded, “Evidence from controlled studies and usual practice supports chiropractic care… as providing benefit to patients with asthma, cervicogenic vertigo, and infantile colic. Evidence was promising for potential benefit of manual procedures for children with otitis media and elderly patients with pneumonia.”
Many people ask how chiropractic could help people suffering from diseases such as asthma and infantile colic? It really comes down to the basic principle that the nervous system controls every function of the human body. The nervous system carries messages from the brain down the spinal cord and out to every organ and limb in our body. In order for the body and organs to function optimally this line of communication must exist without interference. But spinal misalignments – individual vertebrae or entire regions of the spine that are shifted out of position – put pressure or tension on the delicate nerves in the spinal column, interfering with the body’s communications process.
Spinal misalignments can occur in many ways. They can happen all of a sudden through a trauma such as auto accidents, slips and falls, sports injuries or even birth trauma. Or these spinal misalignments can occur slowly over time due to poor posture or bad ergonomics.
Fortunately, chiropractors trained in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) can realign your spine back to a healthy strong alignment using cutting-edge, research-based procedures. CBP, the most researched chiropractic technique in the history of the profession, is a drug-free, noninvasive alternative to standard medical intervention.
