The Chiropractic Way to Heart Health

chiropractic care

Protect your heart! February is National Heart Month and it's important to take care of yourself, especially your heart. Exercise and a healthy balanced diet are essential, but did you know that chiropractic care can also help people take care of the heart. Regular chiropractic care helps keep the nerves in the thoracic region free from interference ensuring the heart works properly. Here are a few other heart-healthy benefits of chiropractic care.

  1. Eliminate Chest Pain

Chest pain is a common symptom that causes people to visit a medical facility. While chest pain is concerning, a great deal of chest discomfort is musculoskeletal in nature. Rather than visiting a medical facility, chest discomfort can be cleared up with regular chiropractic adjustments. However, if you’re worried you are having a heart attack seek emergency assistance immediately or dial 911.

  1. Maximize Heart Rate

One way to control your heart rate is to increase the range across which it beats, this is known as heart rate variability. Heart rate variability is the difference in time between the start of one heartbeat and the start of the next. For those with severe heart problems, it can be hard to get the heart rate to an optimal level. Chiropractic adjustments can help by improving heart rate variability and strengthen your heart muscles.

  1. Nerve Protection

One of the most important jobs of the autonomic nervous system is to control heart contractions. The autonomic nervous system is responsible for protecting your heart's nerves and stimulating your heart and other organs. To keep these nerves healthy, it is recommended that you receive regular chiropractic
adjustments. These adjustments will protect your heart as well as other organs and provide relief for many different types of pain and illness.

  1. Reduce heart Inflammation

Inflammation throughout the heart is one of the leading causes in chronic cardiovascular issues in people. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce that inflammation, which helps to prevent cardiovascular problems from developing.

  1. Control Blood Pressure

One of the most common medical conditions that people experience is high blood pressure, or hypertension. It can take a toll on the arteries, veins, and chambers of the heart. With the help of a chiropractor, it can be reduced. When chiropractors adjust the first vertebra (called the Atlas) on your spine, stress on your arteries and veins is relieved — and it's a great way to help you control your blood pressure.

  1. Increase Lung Function

A heart is a muscle. It needs oxygen. The lungs provide oxygen to the heart. If your lungs are not functioning properly, then you will have a hard time getting the right amount of oxygen into your heart. This is important for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who are at risk of heart failure. Chiropractic adjustments can help these patients to protect their lung function, which keeps their heart healthy.

Heart disease can cause a lot of anxiety, but that's why we're here - to help you live a healthy lifestyle and protect your heart. Regular chiropractic care is not just for back pain, it can also help with the health of your heart.
