Respiratory Function

Improve Respiratory Function with Chiropractic Treatment

Breathing is automatic and something most people don’t even think about until it’s a problem. Several people struggle to breathe daily. Multiple people have found some relief from visiting our chiropractor. While chiropractic care does not directly treat respiratory conditions, it may have indirect benefits on respiratory function. Our team at Canyon Crossing Chiropractic in Puyallup, WA, shares why below.


Breathe Correctly

Even though it’s a naturally-occurring activity, your body carries it out. The diaphragm contracts and inhales. The lungs, abdomen, and ribcage expand as the air comes in and moves through the airways. Your lungs send oxygen to the blood, and the diaphragm, lungs, and abdomen relax.

Impactful Spinal Health

We don’t have to think about this process to make it happen. The autonomic nervous system, or involuntary nervous system, takes care of it for us. This system is a network of brain and spinal cord nerves.

There are issues in the spinal column that impact your breathing. Compressed nerves can pinch nerves, interrupting the messages sent to the brain. Another potential issue is spinal compression. All organs associated with the breathing process need space to contract and expand.

Chiropractic adjustments aim to restore proper alignment and movement of the spine. The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, an integral part of the nervous system. By ensuring proper spinal alignment, chiropractic care may help optimize nervous system function, including communication between the brain and the respiratory system.

Chiropractic Treatment for Respiratory Function

Chiropractic care is a natural solution for managing breathing issues. Several methods can be used during treatment, including but not limited to the following:

  • Adjustments: Adjustments restore the alignment of the spinal column, which takes the pressure off of nerves, muscles, and spinal components.
  • Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine. This can relieve pressure off the nerves and create more space for organs to function properly.
  • Posture Correction: Poor posture can worsen breathing issues. Correcting postural problems and adopting healthier habits can prevent this from occurring.
  • Soft Tissue Therapy: Soft tissue is beneficial for various problems, including tension and inflammation. It can improve the flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body.
