February is American Heart Health Month. While chiropractic care is often first thought of as a treatment option for people experiencing back pain, neck pain, and other issues of the musculoskeletal system, people with heart health issues should consider seeing a chiropractor, as well. Many people are increasingly turning to chiropractic care as a successful treatment option for regulating and maintaining heart health.
Chiropractic Care Promotes Heart Health
Regular chiropractic visits can be extremely beneficial to the well-being of your cardiovascular system. Even the most minor interferences in spinal alignment can lead to further, more serious health conditions later on in life. This is because any sort of disturbance in the spinal column causes disruptions in the nervous system’s brain/body communication.
Correcting spinal misalignments is an important step to take towards improving your overall health and decreasing your risk of developing complicating health issues. Research has shown that chiropractic adjustments can help successfully support the cardiovascular system by relieving chest pain, lowering blood pressure, reducing the heart rate, and even preventing heart attacks.
Chiropractic Care Lowers Blood Pressure
Did you know 1 in 2 adults has high blood pressure? If left uncontrolled, high blood pressure can increase a person’s risk for heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, pregnancy complications, and cognitive decline later in life. Chiropractic adjustments help naturally lower blood pressure levels, meaning your heart is not working as hard to pump blood throughout your body, which prevents the organ from becoming too strained. We’ve seen countless patients in our office get off blood pressure medication!
