Spinal Manipulation May Help Asthma Patients

Patients suffering from asthma may benefit from spinal manipulation, according to a study presented at the 9th International Conference on Spinal Manipulation in Toronto. Trials conducted at 16 treatment centers in Australia found that only the patient group which underwent spinal manipulation displayed significant improvement in asthma symptoms as well as depression and anxiety scores. In addition, patients undergoing spinal manipulation displayed biochemical changes suggesting that increased immunological capacities would be expected to ward off subsequent asthmatic attacks.
