Asthma is a condition that narrows the airways in the lungs, filling them with mucus, causing obstruction and making it difficult to breathe. Although this is a common affliction, it isn't without complication to the sufferers.
The cause of asthma is believed by some researchers to be an interruption of the respiratory system in the brain stem, and is triggered by anything that brings on inflammation in the lungs. For some patients it may be pollen or mold, and others pet dander or any variety of irritants.
Subluxations of the cervical spine can contribute to the irritation of the respiratory system via the brain stem. Upper Cervical providers, including Dr. Peddy, can greatly improve the function of the lungs by correcting that misalignment and restoring the flow of communication from the brain stem to the appropriate organs.
