Asthma

“I am a Chiropractor because it got rid of my Asthma!” –Corey Malnikof, DC

If you have not read my story already, I will brief you here. I was a severely sick young boy. I grew up with severe asthma. I was not allowed outside if it was too cold or too hot. I grew up in Buffalo, NY which meant I pretty much stayed inside. My parents tried everything to try and help me. We tried every pill, potion, lotion, and inhaler under the sun, but nothing worked. The only thing that worked was frequent trips to the emergency room for injections of adrenaline into my chest.

My mother remembered that as a Child her father took her to the Chiropractor for anything that had to do with her health, so she decided to take me. Two weeks of Chiropractic care and my asthma was gone. I realized at an early age the difference between living with health and without. It inspired me to eventually become a Chiropractor and start the Palmercare Chiropractic clinics.

It’s not just my experience, look at the research that is happening:


Chiropractic Care of a Pediatric Patient with Asthma, Allergies, Chronic Colds & Vertebral Subluxation


A 7-year-old male was presented by his parents for chiropractic evaluation and possible care. The suffered from chronic colds, allergies, and asthma since the age of 5 months. At the time of initial evaluation, the patient was on a 1x/day dose of prescription Alavert for allergies and Albuterol for asthma. The patient was cared for using specific, low-force adjustments with the Activator Instrument to address areas of vertebral subluxation in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbosacral spine. Within two weeks of initiating chiropractic care, the patient was able to discontinue his allergy and asthma medications (as decided upon by his parents) and the use of his nebulizer.

Chronic Pediatric Asthma and Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation: A Prospective Clinical Series and Randomized Clinical Pilot Study

After 3 months of combining chiropractic SMT with optimal medical management for pediatric asthma, the children rated their quality of life substantially higher and their asthma severity substantially lower. These improvements were maintained at the 1-year follow-up assessment.

I cannot promise that we can help, but what I can promise is our signature 80 to 100 step examination, surface Emg, and x-ray if needed. I can promise that at the end of our examination you will know two things…first, you will know exactly what is going on, and second, you will know what you need to do next to start moving towards wellness. If we can help you we would love to, but if we cannot then we will help you find where to start.
