Does high blood pressure affect you and your family?
Are your personal habits and diet making you vulnerable to heart disease?
If you are carrying excessive weight, are not physically active, and smoke cigarettes on a regular basis, your chances of developing heart disease increase significantly.
Fortunately, our Lithia Springs Chiropractors can help you prevent heart disease from developing over time.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease the primary cause of death for men and women throughout the United States.
Although Chiropractic care is primarily connected to treating conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, the value of regular Chiropractic care has been proven to extend beyond supporting a healthy spine.
Studies show that Chiropractic Adjustments are useful for: preventing heart attacks, stabilizing your heart rate, eliminating any kind of chest pain, and maintaining blood pressure levels.
According to an article offered by chirojournal.com, your nerves directly affect how well your heart performs.
“Nerves from the upper back (sympathetic) stimulate the heart to beat faster and more forcefully. The vagus nerve (parasympathetic) passes through the skull and down to the heart to slow the pulse and decrease the power of each contraction. Normal function is the result of a balance between these two systems. Spinal misalignments, which interfere with these nerves (vertebral subluxations), can adversely affect heart function.”
The kind of treatment solutions our Lithia Springs Chiropractors offer have a significant impact on stabilizing blood pressure levels, as well as reducing personal anxiety and stress.
In addition to Chiropractic Adjustments that support a healthier, stronger heart, your Lithia Springs Chiropractor can offer a number of lifestyle recommendations that help you eliminate unhealthy habits that increase your risk of developing heart disease over time.
From substituting particular foods that are high in saturated fats with others that are high in omega-3 fatty acids to helping you quit smoking, the Chiropractors at AICA help thousands of patients each year recover from heart disease.
