Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (also known as COPD) describes a set of respiratory conditions, the most common of which are Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis.  These conditions are commonly seen in individuals with a long history of smoking and can severely affect one's quality of life.  Both conditions involve difficulty breathing and usually require medical intervention, especially in the advanced stages.  Although chiropractic care will not cure chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, many patients find symptomatic relief by visiting a chiropractor.  Upon visiting the office, your chiropractor will conduct an examination to find out if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, and what treatment plan will best suit your needs.  Your treatment plan may involve an adjustment of the thoracic (mid back) region of your spine, or your ribs.  Improving the motion in your rib cage may allow you to breath more easily and take in more air with each breath.  Since many patients with emphysema and bronchitis have trouble taking in enough oxygen, this could help improve your blood gases and provide some relief of your symptoms, making every day life a little bit easier.  Chiropractic care can also help improve other aspects of your daily life by improving the function of your joints, muscles, and nervous system.  For more ways in which chiropractic care can help improve your quality of life, be sure to check out the "Resources" tab at the top of the page.  Here you will find a number of other conditions for which chiropractic care may be of benefit, as well as more information on how our office may help you reach your health goals.  If you'd like more information on your unique condition, you may contact our office to schedule your free initial consultation with Dr. Fleming.
