Over 7 million children are currently diagnosed with the chronic long term disease, Asthma, the most common chronic disease of childhood. Breathing being a vital component of mere existence is difficult for children who experience the various symptoms of Asthma. This disease has the capacity to interfere with a child’s physical education, their interaction with peers and impairs the child’s ability to live a normal lifestyle. Researching the impact of chiropractic manipulation in treating the symptoms of asthma in children is an important research project designed to aid children suffering from the symptoms of Asthma. A survey will be sent out to parents and guardians of children with Asthma in order to enhance and assist the research conducted. A literature review on the impact of chiropractic manipulation on treating the symptoms of asthma in children between the ages of 3-12, will be carried out to provide parents and guardians of these children with the results of the study. The importance of the proposed research to health sciences is that it will provide a new outlook to alternative medicine which individuals may consider resorting to chiropractic care for treatment in asthma instead of medications.
