Keep Your Heart Healthy With Chiropractic Care

Taking special care to make sure that your heart is strong and healthy is a priority that everyone should take seriously. In the United States, heart disease is the number one cause of death in both men and women, with many people actively living with it today.

It’s important to understand that heart disease is not just one condition, but that it can come in many forms. The most widely known heart problem is coronary artery disease, a condition that causes the arteries that go to and from the heart to narrow, constricting blood flow. However, cardiovascular disease can also mean heart attack, arrhythmia, valve disease, congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, pericardial disease and vascular disease, all potentially fatal conditions. Don’t freak out too much though, there are many things you can do to drastically reduce your risk of getting all of these diseases. 

With chiropractic care you might be able to not only manage your current heart condition, but you may also be able to ward off getting heart disease all together. It may seem shocking to most people that chiropractic treatments may be able to help treat people suffering from heart problems, especially since chiropractic is usually associated with chronic back pain, neck pain and headache issues. But, chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive therapy that has been used to treat heart disease in many different patients. 

One case study was done on a 54-year-old man who began receiving chiropractic treatments in an effort to restore his lipid panel back to a healthy state. It was found that after six months of regular adjustments, the man’s lipids were reduced down to normal levels without any other lifestyle changes being done concerning his diet or activity levels. Prior to receiving chiropractic treatments the man was on ten different types of heart medications. After his six months of chiropractic therapy, his LDL, HDL and triglycerides were healthy enough to not require him to be on any of his heart prescriptions. 

Since chiropractic is a drug-free treatment, all the therapy done on the man in the case study was through various spinal manipulations and adjustments. Chiropractic is based on the theory that the nervous system is responsible for maintaining optimal health in the body. When it is functioning properly, it helps transmit information between the brain and every other part of the body. When there are dysfunctions in the spine, this can cause disruptions in how efficient the nervous system is at transmitting this information. These problem areas of the spine are known by chiropractors as subluxations. They are able to be corrected by manipulations that return the spine back to its proper alignment. When the spine is free of subluxations, then the body returns to a state of healing, affecting every muscle, nerve, tissue and, most importantly, the heart.
