It’s always important to take care of your heart, but February is National Heart Month, so let’s look at how chiropractic care is good for your cardiac health. The distribution of the heart’s nerves comes from the thoracic region of the spinal cord, so it’s essential to keep these nerves free from impingement. Chiropractic care does that, ensuring that your heart works properly. Here are some other ways chiropractic care helps keep your ticker, ticking!
Reduce blood pressure
Chronically high blood pressure puts a lot of stress on your heart’s chambers and your arteries and veins. Chiropractic manipulation has been shown to reduce blood pressure, protecting your heart.
Because chiropractic treatment lowers blood pressure, it also reduces anxiety. Anxious people often experience heart palpitations and do not get enough sleep. By reducing the many unhealthy side effects of anxiety, you protect your heart.
Get more sleep
Numerous studies have proven that lack of sleep can lead to everything from stroke and heart attack to high blood pressure and heart failure, so getting more sleep is good for your heart. As we’ve already seen, chiropractic care reduces anxiety, leading to more sleep. It also reduces back, neck, and joint pain, which helps you sleep more.
Improve lung function
To function properly, your heart needs your lungs. If your lungs are not working right, your heart muscle will not have enough oxygen to beat properly. Chiropractic care helps protect your lung function.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This includes inflammation in the arteries, veins, and heart that causes cardiovascular disease.

These are just some of the many ways in which chiropractic care can help your cardiac health. During February, which is National Heart Month, protect your heart with a visit to Pure Wellness. We would love to show you the many benefits of chiropractic for your overall health and well-being.
