Asthma is a very common ailment affecting the the respiratory system.  Asthma sufferers experience trouble breathing, tightness in the chest and wheezing along with other possible symptoms such as coughing, shakiness and sometimes vomiting.  Depending on the cause of the asthma, an asthma attack can be triggered by an allergic reaction, stress, physical exertion, medications, exposure to cool and damp environments.

Osteopathy may be able to complement your asthma management program by assisting the mechanics of breathing. Respiritory function may be assisted by freeing up the restrictions around the chest and ribs, relaxing respiratory muscles, improving lymphatic drainage from the lungs and airways and improving blood supply to the chest area.

To discuss your respiritory health management, make a booking with one of our osteopaths to discuss the possibilities for improved health.
