Patient Success Story: Asthma
October 18, 2016
By Chiro One Wellness Centers
“I had co-workers who had been heaping praise on their chiropractic care. I was curious, but not ready for commitment. I attended a Food Truck Festival and they coaxed me into it. The staff was so pleasant, they got me to stay.
I didn’t realize I had any symptoms prior to coming in. I have had asthma for just about three years and had a stiff neck. Never thought of using a chiropractor for asthma and my neck stiffness usually went away on its own. I found myself just dealing with the problem, as I had developed a tolerance for it.
I tried at least three medications, including two inhalers for my asthma. I occasionally would need to have a nebulizer treatment, which has occurred two times by mid-year. Before I came into Chiro One I had not really considered a chiropractor. I had been in a car accident at least 30 years ago and I initially used one, and then also used one for neck pain. My youngest daughter thought about it as a career, which I believe made me more conscious of the care, but I had not considered seeing one.
I am extremely fearful of allergens when season changes occur. Breathing was difficult; extreme heat was a problem. Opening windows was out! Dr. Jill has been asking me how I was doing and it dawned on me that I have not had a problem in 3 weeks and allergen count has been up. My quality of life has improved 100-fold since July of this year.
I am truly glad I re-discovered chiropractic care. The fact that it is natural care and the body alignments work with the body, not against, truly please me. I don’t like prescription medications and I am off of one. Hopefully, I will be down to none within the next 6-9 months. I love Dr. Jill!”
