Lung Function Improves With Chiropractic Care
A study presented in the September, 1997 issue of the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research finds that patients in the study experienced "significant positive changes" in breathing capacity and lung function under chiropractic care.
55 patients were studied in a private office setting. Of the 55, 33 (60%) of them had * Model, not actual patient lung function outside the normal range. All the patients were monitored with spirometers (instruments which measure lung capacity and function) before and after chiropractic care.
While the average lung function of all 55 patients improved, the 33 whose breathing was most impaired had the best response to chiropractic care. Also, patients who were in the 48-80 age group did better than those in the 18-47 age group.
It doesn't surprise us that those patients with the most impairment improved the most under chiropractic care. This study is a prime example that when nerve interference, such as that which occurs with a vertebral subluxation, is corrected, the body is better able to repair itself and maintain a higher degree of health. Ensuing research supports this fact. The Fall 1999 issue of the Chiropractic Research Journal (vol. 6, no. 2) reports that patients under chiropractic care reported an improvement in their general health status after receiving chiropractic adjustments.
