A Healthy Heart with Chiropractic

Did you know… heart disease is the cause of 1 in 3 women’s deaths every year, killing one woman every minute! So how do you prevent heart disease?  The typical answer includes: don’t smoke, manage your blood pressure and blood sugar, lower your cholesterol, stay active, eat a healthy diet and keep your weight under control.  These are all great preventative steps to take, but another important wellness lifestyle to keep heart disease at bay is regular chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is usually associated with relieving pain.  Although pain reduction is a major part, doctors of chiropractic address your entire nervous system, which is tied to all areas and functions of the body.  A healthy and balanced nervous system strengthens your immunity as well as your heart and circulatory system.

Research has indicated that regular chiropractic adjustments help to prevent heart attacks, lower blood pressure and relive chest pain.  Actually, the adjustment of the first cervical vertebra, also known as “atlas” or “C1”, can stop some heart attacks while they are occurring by removing the compression from the artery, lowering blood pressure.

One of the most prevalent risk factor for heart disease is stress.  Because chiropractic adjustments decrease both blood pressure and heart rate, anxiety and inflammation also decrease. This generally results in an increase of quality of life and reduction of stress.  When stress is removed, your body is better able to fend off health ailments, including those that affect your heart.

Chiropractic adjustments not only boost immunity and relieve musculoskeletal ailments, they also strengthen your heart and cardiovascular system.   Combining a chiropractic lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise is an effective and powerful way to fight against heart disease!
