Asthma is a significant worry for many people in Harleysville and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Dr. Szilagyi has helped many people in Harleysville get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical research verifies what we see in our clinic. For instance, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this report, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you're 9 or 90, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Dr. Szilagyi in Harleysville and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
