If cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, why not throw everything we’ve got at it in order to change that statistic? The more people who change their lifestyle by eating a Paleo diet, drinking quality water, getting plenty of sleep and sunshine, and enhancing their diets with quality supplements, the lower that statistic will go. But what else can we possibly do to reduce our risk of cardiovascular disease? Easy…see a chiropractor.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Your Heart
Chiropractic care can significantly help prevent or treat heart disease. I recommend it to all of my patients, especially those with heart rhythm issues, hypertension, and those who have fainting episodes.
Why is it so effective? Because millions of tiny connections link the heart and blood vessels to the central nervous system. These nerves control heart rate and blood pressure, both essential factors for heart health. Chiropractic care keeps our body in alignment so these nerves can communicate effectively with the organ systems they serve. If communication is interrupted, then dysfunction can occur.
What Are the Cardiac Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
- Lowers blood pressure
- Improves nerve function to heart
- Decreases blood markers of inflammation
- Improves heart rate variability
- Decreases chest pain
- Improves lung function
In a nutshell…
Chiropractic care not only will help your heart health, but every other system in your body: musculoskeletal, digestive tract, sinuses, the list goes on.
If you have ever fallen out of bed, been in a car accident, or played sports, I would strongly encourage you to see a chiropractor.
