A young mother was told by the medical community that her 4-year-old son has severe asthma. She was told she needed to keep him on a steroid inhaler four times per day to help increase the flow of air in his lungs. One of the side effects of a steroid is it can cause more activeness or jitteriness. The last thing you want for a 4-year-old is to be active or jittery just before bed. The mother was told that the use of these medications could be indefinite.
This mother brought her son to Matthews & Hansen Chiropractic. Dr. Matthews was able to help her son to increase his ability to breathe better, and decrease the episodes of wheezing and coughing. He is now able to play and be active with less coughing and wheezing and able to sleep through the night. Both the mother and son can take a deep breath knowing that there is alternative help for children with asthma.
