Asthma is one of the most common respiratory diseases in New Zealand, which can affect people of all ages. Sufferers can experience difficulty breathing, with an associated wheeze and tightness of the chest. Other symptoms may include coughing, vomiting and shaking.
There are two different types of asthma:
Allergic asthma: symptoms are usually the result of inhaling or consuming some kind of external substance such as pollen, dust mites, mould, wheat or dairy produce.
Non-allergic asthma: can be triggered by a range of different factors, including physical exertion, some medications, fatigue, stress or exposure to environments which are cold and damp.
How Premier Osteo Can Help You With Your Breathing
We work with the body’s structure to improve and enhance the breathing mechanism by:
Relaxing the respiratory muscles
Freeing restrictions of the chest, ribs and spine
Improving lymphatic drainage from the lungs and airways
Enhancing the blood supply to the chest region
Individualised exercise program, with emphasis on breathing exercises
Education on avoiding aggravating factors, diet, posture, lifestyle and first aid measures during an attack.
Premier Osteo will use a variety of manual techniques to achieve the above, including soft tissue stretching and massage, along with articulation and mobilisation of the joints. We work in conjunction with other health care professionals, with the long term aim of improving the person’s quality of life and helping to reduce the negative effects of Asthma.
