Acute Asthma Attack Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI

Acute Asthma Attack

Asthma is a relatively common, chronic condition affecting the airways in the lungs. This condition affects small airways in the lungs (called bronchioles).

Over time, these bronchioles constrict, leading to wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest, and laborious breathing. The severity of these symptoms depends on the extent of the narrowing of the bronchioles, and the length of each episode; from mild to severe. The prevalence and severity of this condition make people seek acute asthma attack treatment.

Causes of an Acute Asthma Attack:

Acute Asthma Attack Treatment

Because it is such a commonly occurring and widespread condition, it’s treatment is also vast. Preventing the causative factors has proven to be the chief treatment for asthma, but other acute asthma attack treatments include:

• A rescue inhaler containing a short-acting bronchodilator
• A long-acting bronchodilator
• Steroid tablets
• Chiropractic treatment

One far-reaching alternative of all other Acute asthma attack treatments is Chiropractic medicine. This largely involves making the patient sit in an upright position to facilitate the entry of maximum air into the lungs, thus expanding the lungs. In doing so, your chiropractor is ensuring a proper nervous supply, which in-turn is controlling your body’s normal functions. This is done by correcting and adjusting the spine and vertebral connections, thus, augmenting the body’s normal healing capacity.
