How many people do you personally know who have allergies? Chances are one in four people will tell you they do. And asthma is a related disease where people have a hard time breathing because allergens or over-exertion cause spasms in air passageways in the lungs. These passageways become congested with mucus and a person has a hard time breathing. Asthma sufferers are known to wheeze and cough when trouble occurs.
Though traditional treatments for breathing problems exist, like inhalers and allergy shots, consider meeting with Dr. Ben Knight. As a Chanhassen allergy doctor, Dr. Knight has the knowledge of how the spinal column, nervous system, immune system, and respiratory system are all connected. His chiropractic care can help relieve your “vertebral subluxations.” In other words, chiropractic adjustments can help “normal lymph drainage,” removing blockages in your body so it can return to normal.
Chanhassen allergy doctor Ben Knight also pays attention to your diaphragm, the muscle used during breathing. Did you know that your diaphragm gets its power from your phrenic nerve, which exits from three vertebrae in your neck? So your neck and diaphragm need to function properly for you to breathe properly. Dr. Knight can work on vertebral misalignments in order to improve your breathing.
One of the main reasons to see your Chanhassen allergy doctor is that Dr. Knight’s approach to health care is natural. Rather than having to take pills and shots for healing, Dr. Knight’s chiropractic care involves no drugs– just manipulation of your vertebrae so that they’re where they’re supposed to be, and you can breathe without trouble.
If you suffer from allergies or asthma and want to take a natural approach toward healing the pain, call for an appointment with Dr. Knight, your Chanhassen allergy doctor, at 952-300-8338.
