Chiropractor discusses lung function

Chiropractor Thought of the Week:  One study has discovered that another way to keep your lungs breathing easier is by visiting the chiropractor.. In September of 2016, the Journal of Physical Therapy Science published a study involving 30 subjects between the ages of 20 and 38 who were not currently being treated for any type of respiratory issue, nor were they experiencing any pain in their thoracic region. One-half were randomly assigned to an experimental group, which is the group that received actual spinal manipulation by the chiropractor. The remainders were assigned to the control chiropractor, receiving sham treatments instead.  At the onset of the study, each subject’s respiratory function was tested and recorded. Follow-up respiratory testing occurred immediately following the chiropractors actual or sham treatment session.  After studying the lung-function data collected, researchers noted that the experimental group, which is the group that received actual care by the chiropractor, had “significantly increased” their forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume in one second. The group that received the sham treatments experienced no difference in their respiratory function at all.  These findings suggests that chiropractic care likely plays a more important role in healthy lung function than most people realize.
