TS has cystic fibrosis. There is no cure for cystic fibrosis and her life expectancy was age 40. She has been an ASM® patient for 10 years. When she turned 40 she came in for a visit and with tears of gratitude thanked her ASM chiropractor. She feels the maintenance care she gets with ASM has made all the difference in the quality and length of her life. She spends hours a day coughing and the constant stress on her back and neck can cause periods of intense pain. She feels timely ASM treatment has kept her from serious back and neck injuries. When her biomechanical system is more efficient and pain free it seems to help her overall immunity and she gets less infections. She used to be admitted to the hospital 3-4 times a year for IV antibiotics. After leaving her teaching job and having periodic ASM treatment she can now go as many as two years in between hospitalizations. Her brain body system is more able to keep itself in balance.
