During the last 20 years, our work with numerous asthmatic cases has yielded dramatic results.  A key factor has been attributed to the relationship of postural mechanics of the upper extremity, cervical spine and neurological component associated with this respiratory condition.

Anterior collapse of the shoulder complex combined with an increased curvature of the cervical spine has been a common mal-alignment pattern in every case examined.  Analysis and corrective work which increases the flexibility of the shoulder complex, cervical and upper thoracic spine combined with postural correction has yielded immediate changes in both the severity and frequency of asthma attacks.

Note: All cases involved cross applications of biomechanical analysis, correction and retraining methods that were originally developed to enhance joint range of motion, flexibility and performance of the elite dancer and international athlete. We seek the participation and involvement of the medical community with both the assessment of potential cases that may benefit from our research as well as active participation throughout the course of consultations.
