If you suffer from Asthma, you know that an Asthma attack may be a minor nuisance or a major problem. Sometimes it interferes with your daily activities, while other times, it can be life threatening. During an Asthma attack, your airway swells shut and can produce extra mucus. This causes shortness of breath, wheezing, and often coughing fits.
Symptoms are generally unique to each person. Some may have attacks at certain times, like when exercising, some may have random attacks, and some may have attacks constantly.
Currently, Asthma cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. In light of the fact that Asthma severity and symptoms often change as you age, you must work with a doctor to track your symptoms and adjust your treatment as needed. Because the brain controls all of the organs and functions of the body, if the brain, or the signals it sends out, are impaired, it can affect the lungs and immune system.
When these signals are blocked or partially blocked, they may send out communications that cause an overreaction of the immune system, which in turn causes the lungs to spasm. The nerves that carry these signals pass directly from the brain through the top vertebrae of the spine which is called the atlas.
When the atlas is out of its proper position, it will put pressure on the blood vessels that run to and from the brain as well as on these nerves. This can cause problems with the brain’s ability to control the body and may result in asthma symptoms.
At Atlas we will perform an exam to determine if the atlas is out of position. If it is, we will take a specific series of digital X-rays and run them through spinal engineering software to determine how out of place the atlas is, and precisely what we need to do to return it to its proper position.
The correction is then performed utilizing a painless sound wave-based procedure, resulting in improved blood flow to the brain and removal of any signal interference among the nerves.
