I wanted to share with you some startling facts I read recently regarding allergies and asthma.
Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from allergies, and approximately 20 million suffer from asthma. With some overlap between the conditions, more than 60 million Americans experience either allergies, asthma, or both. Celebrities are not immune to allergies or asthma, either. Lindsay Lohan and Rashida Jones both know what it's like to suffer from asthma and allergies, respectively.
Let's look at the cost of the standard course of treatment. The costs for medications, hospital/emergency room admissions for asthma and allergy related illnesses, and the loss of business productivity are huge - approximately $18 billion annually. The impact on children alone is significant and ongoing - 14 million school days are missed annually due to allergies and asthma. These disorders are the number one reason for school absenteeism. That's a lot of people missing out on a lot of normal, day to day things, due to conditions that are easily managed with chiropractic care at our Chicago land office!
