Help Your Heart With Chiropractic
By Brandi Goodman
American Heart Month in February encourages everyone to take a look at their heart health. Are you eating the right foods? Do you get plenty of exercise? Healthy habits such as these can greatly help your heart as well. Chiropractic care is yet another option that will help you improve your heart health and keep your well-being intact.
Poor circulation can impact the way your heart operates. If the blood and oxygen are failing to flow through you properly, it can cause your heart to pump even harder to try and get the job done. Subluxations in place and interruptions to your nervous system can interfere with your body's circulatory response. Get chiropractic to correct joint restrictions and enhance the nervous system and you'll experience improved circulation. This will reduce the work your heart has to accomplish and keep it from being overburdened.
Reducing Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can be a cause of interference for your circulation. Blood and oxygen won't be able to flow as freely when your blood pressure is high and damage is done to your arteries. Stress is a common cause of high blood pressure. Use chiropractic to ease tension in your body, relieve stress, and reduce your blood pressure so you can prevent it from taxing your heart.
Relieving Chest Pain
Whether due to the high blood pressure, poor circulation, a joint restriction, or another culprit, you could be experiencing chest pain. If you've seen your primary doctor and there seems to be no significant need for concern, you can still get a second opinion from a chiropractor. A joint restriction, in particular, could be causing you discomfort in this area. You also could have pulled something, perhaps when reaching too far or overexerting yourself in any activity. Chiropractic care can provide a full adjustment that will hopefully relieve the pain you're feeling.
Your chiropractor will do more than offer an adjustment. He may also provide some additional guidance on healthy habits you can try to help your heart. Which foods to eat -- such as nuts, healthy fats, fruits rich in antioxidants, and leafy greens -- may be advised. You could also be instructed on easy exercises that you can do depending on your precise source of pain and range of movement. Water will also be a key instruction. Follow your chiropractor's advice if you want to maintain your heart health and keep up with your wellness in general.
