If you have asthma or are experiencing shortness of breath, chiropractic can help! We teach you how to breathe properly from your diaphragm and correct spinal weakness that affects your breathing.

How Breathing Problems Develop

Though asthma often comes to mind when it comes to shortness of breath, causes of breathing problems extend far beyond this. The nerves from the upper thoracic spine send strength and energy to the lungs. Spinal misalignments in this area of the spine (including forward head posture) can weaken these same nerves. This can lead to breathing problems, and longstanding weakness can also lead to recurrent lung infections. Posture distortions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas can also lead to making full, deep breaths difficult or even painful. Other causes of breathing problems include:

  • Allergies
  • Panic attacks
  • Lung disease
  • Blockage of air passages in the mouth, throat or nose
  • Heart disease
  • Blood clot in arteries of the lungs
  • Emotional distress
