Since February is National Heart Health Month, it’s the perfect time to discuss how Chiropractic care can significantly reduce the risk of experiencing Cardiovascular Disease.
For citizens of the United States, heart disease serves as the number one cause of death and is responsible for killing over 600,000 people each year, according to The Heart Foundation.
Also, someone suffers from the onset of a heart attack every 34 seconds, affecting over 720,000 individuals on an annual basis.
Chiropractic Care and Heart Disease
The concept of Chiropractic medicine focuses on providing holistic treatment that addresses the cause of any physical ailment, without the use of invasive devices or techniques.
When it comes to Chiropractic care and heart health, the type of holistic treatment we provide positively impacts the nerves that are connected to your central nervous system, which is also connected to your heart and the blood vessels that run throughout your body.
These nerves play a crucial role in controlling your heart rate, as well as your blood pressure. Our treatment methods help stimulate real nerve activity and regulate your system, while also providing a tremendous amount of benefits to your heart.
How Chiropractic Care Reduces the Risk of Heart Disease
Through continuous testing and research, there are some proven ways that Chiropractic care can contribute to reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, as well as treat its symptoms for those who are already battling this condition.
Helps Improve Nerve Function
Known as the autonomic tone, this particular concept positively impacts your:
- Sex organs
- Gastrointestinal tract;
along with other areas of your body that support digestion, regulation, and system filtration.
Helps Decrease Inflammation in Your Joints and Blood Vessels
It is well documented that persistent, excessive inflammation can trigger various cardiovascular threats, such as in the case of heart attacks.
Helps Improve Your Heart Rate
Being able to support, regulate, and maintain a healthy heart rate is critical for avoiding degenerative conditions that weaken your heart over time.
Helps Reduce Chest Pain
There are millions of people in the United States who visit a hospital due to some chest pain, all of which could have been avoided through the ongoing use of Chiropractic care. Chest pain is often associated with musculoskeletal conditions, which can usually be addressed through the use of a spinal adjustment.
Rib misalignment, thoracic vertebral subluxations, and costochondritis all cause specific types of health issues that can be remedied through Chiropractic treatment.
Helps Improve the Performance of Your Lungs
It is well documented that Chiropractic care is an effective means for treating patients who suffer from asthma and emphysema.
Since poor lung performance is directly linked to heart failure, our treatment methods can prevent this from happening because of their ability to strengthen your central and nervous systems.
