HEART Health and Chiropractic Care

Seeking chiropractic treatment to improve cardiovascular health helps you improve existing concerns and can reduce your risk of serious heart problems, including heart attacks.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death of people in the United States. It’s so common in fact that heart health is at the forefront of most American’s health concerns. People understand that it is important to take proper actions to prevent cardiovascular disease for a long, healthy life. One way to do this is via routine Chiropractic Care. Routine Chiropractic Care can significantly help prevent heart disease.

The heart and blood vessels are connected to the central nervous system by millions of tiny connections. One major attachment is the vagus nerve (which comes from the brain) and the autonomic nervous system (which has input into the entire body). These nerves control heart rate and blood pressure, both of which are essential factors for heart health. Since Chiropractic Care positively impacts these nerves, its benefits to the heart are tremendous.

Here are just a few heart health benefits of Chiropractic Care:

Lowers blood pressure – studies show a significant improvement in blood pressure when chiropractors adjust the 1st vertebra, called the Atlas. When the atlas is out of proper alignment you can get altered blood flow to the brain and increased sympathetic stimulation in the nervous system that can drive up blood pressure.

Decreases blood markers of inflammation – the more inflammation, the greater your risk of cardiovascular events.

Decreases chest pain – Chest pain is often musculoskeletal in nature. Most patients can be quickly assessed and once a doctor determines that the heart is not involved, curative therapy from a doctor of chiropractic is imperative. Patients do not need the “million dollar work-up”, they need an adjustment. Costochondritis, rib misalignment, or thoracic vertebrae subluxation are all causes of chest pain and shortness of breath that will respond to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care can prevent or reduce the effects of various heart issues, including chest pain, rapid heartbeat, and high blood pressure.
