Asthma Care in Alexandria VA

Classically, an asthmatic patient in Alexandria reports: difficulty breathing, wheezing episodes, coughing and tightness in the chest. Asthma treatment is not limited to inhalers and nebulizers, but chiropractic treatment may also be of benefit. As chiropractors, we receive professional training to assess the patient as a whole, and not just focus on one area.

There are various factors that can aggravate asthmatics, such as: environmental allergens (some examples are: mold, pet dander and air pollutants), exercise, smoking (inclusive of second and third degree inhalation), stress and prolonged respiratory infections.

At Rosa Family Chiropractic of Alexandria in Virginia, which is located at 4875 Eisenhower Avenue Suite 215 Alexandria, VA 22304, chiropractor Dr. Jasmine Bradley will examine the patient to determine the cause of their complaint. As a result, Dr. Bradley will perform a detailed exam and evaluate the patient.

Although evidence based peer reviewed research provides studies showing how chiropractic may be of benefit to those who suffer from asthma, chiropractors can co-manage with the primary care physician, especially in moderate to severe asthmatics. Chiropractors in Alexandria may provide the following care for the patients, with asthma: auscultate the lungs, assess peak flow measurements, perform myofascial treatment, and or adjust the neck to mid-back and possible chiropractic rib misalignments.

In addition to the areas discussed above, the soft tissues and joints will also be evaluated to determine the best and most effective methods to treat the patient, in order to help the patient\'s breathing.

Dr. Jasmine Bradley will conduct a thorough chiropractic exam to determine the cause of the problem. A proper chiropractic evaluation will permit Dr. Bradley to provide specific adjustments for the areas to be treated. With the aim of maintaining your chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises will be prescribed in order to strengthen the muscles and stabilize the other structures surrounding the adjusted areas. Other likely beneficial activities, for stress related asthma may be helped by: meditation to release stress, writing in a journal and possible gentle stretches with proper breathing techniques. Dr. Bradley of Rosa Family Chiropractic - Alexandria will also discuss diet and nutrition and how it vitally contributes to overall health and wellness.
