Chiropractic Care and Heart Health

It positively affects the nerves linked to your heart and the blood vessels that run across your body. These nerves play an important role in regulating heart rate and blood pressure. Here’s how chiropractic can help your heart.
Reduces the risk of heart disease

Recent studies have shown some proven ways that chiropractic care can reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, as well as effectively manage the symptoms for those who are already dealing with it. It does so by inhibiting pro-inflammatory substances, improving nerve functions and positively impacting your heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and sex organs.

Helps decrease inflammation

It is a well-known fact that chronic, excessive inflammation can cause specific cardiovascular risks, such as pericarditis and heart attacks. Chiropractic care helps decrease inflammation in the blood vessels and therefore reduces the risk of heart complications. This is especially helpful in preventing age-related inflammatory heart conditions such as atherosclerosis.

Helps improve your heart rate

To avoid degenerative diseases that weaken the heart over time, it is important to maintain a normal heart rate. A study shows that four weeks of chiropractic treatment can help regulate and maintain a healthy heart rate.

Help reduce chest pain

In the United States, approximately ten million people are attending a hospital because of some chest pain, all of which can be prevented through the regular use of chiropractic care. Chest pain is often associated with musculoskeletal disorders that can typically be treated by spinal manipulation.

Pericarditis, rib misalignment, and thoracic vertebral subluxations – the leading causes of chest pain – can be treated and prevented by chiropractic care.

Helps improve the performance of your lungs

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to treat patients with asthma and emphysema.

Since low lung function is directly associated with heart failure, multiple sessions of chiropractic treatment can help prevent these lung conditions by improving the nerve conduction and strengthening the central and spinal nervous system.
In addition, chiropractic adjustments help to improve your posture which allows for more chest expansion and better lung capacity and efficiency.
