Cough-Variant Asthma Helped by Chiropractic

A study released on September 18, 2021, by the International Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, examines the results of children suffering with cough-variant asthma who underwent chiropractic care.

The website WebMD best describes this condition by stating, “Cough-variant asthma is a type of asthma in which the main symptom is a dry, non-productive cough. People with cough-variant asthma often have no other “classic” asthma symptoms, such as wheezing or shortness of breath.”

The US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health reports that “Cough variant asthma (CVA) is a form of asthma, which presents solely with cough. CVA is one of the most common causes of chronic cough. More importantly, 30 to 40% of adult patients with CVA, unless adequately treated, may progress to classic asthma.”

A Medical News Today article on cough variant asthma notes that this condition can lead to “sleep disruption, exhaustion, vomiting, lightheadedness, urinary leakage and incontinence.” They also report that the typical medical treatment in the U.S. is very similar to the treatment for traditional asthma with a variety of drugs and inhalers.

This study was conducted in China from October 2017 to October 2018 at the department of Maoming Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine Affiliated to Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The study involved 60 children who were suffering with cough variant asthma. About half of the children were in the group that received chiropractic care while the other group were in a control group that received traditional Chinese medical care. The children in both groups were treated for 6 weeks according to the group they were in. There was a followed-up 2 months after care to determine how the children in each group did.

The results of the study showed that those children who received chiropractic care were significantly more improved as compared to the control group. The study reported that the symptoms and cough were “significantly lower than those in the control group.”

In the conclusion of the study the researches state, “Chinese medicine chiropractic can improve the clinical symptoms and serum immune factor levels of children with cough variant asthma syndrome …”
