Chiropractic Care and Asthma ReliefPortland, OR Asthma Care
Approximately 1 in 12 adults are diagnosed with asthma, and that rate is even higher for children as 1 in 10 are reported as having this scary and sometimes even deadly breathing condition. We have many Portland, OR parents bring their children into our office to see Dr. John Helton for asthma relief, and we've had great success in relieving the symptoms.
While an asthma attack is definitely a good reason to visit the emergency room, regular chiropractic care can often improve asthma symptoms and severity, potentially making the last minute hospital trips a thing of the past.
When combined with a medical management program, chiropractic care has been found to reduce asthma severity in as little as just three months of treatment...especially for children with this chronic condition. This means less reliance on an inhaler and more enjoyment while participating in activities that you enjoy. It also means fewer high speed trips to the ER in the hopes that you'll get there "fast enough," which is a bonus in anyone's book.
If you or your child suffers from asthma symptoms, visit our Portland, OR to see if Dr. John Helton can help. Our office number is (503) 771-1974.
