Manual Therapy Helps COPD Patients Breathe Better.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung disease that makes breathing difficult, and it is a leading cause of death in the United States. A study that included 33 COPD patients found that including muscle energy technique (MET) sessions in a COPD rehabilitation program led to better outcomes with respect to subjective breathing. Doctors of chiropractic are trained in the delivery of MET and other forms of manual therapy. Journal of Integrative Medicine, March 2023
