Maintaining a strong heart is one of the most important things you can do for your body. We’ve all heard that a healthy diet and exercise routine are key factors that go into your heart health. What we want to tell you is that chiropractic care is also part of the care group that can help keep your heart strong. In honor of American Heart Month, here are a couple of reasons why getting regular adjustments and chiropractic treatments can help with your heart rate and lower your blood pressure.
Chiropractic Care Can Help Adjust Your Heart Rate
When you think about what causes your heart rate to rise, you might normally think about exercise. While exercise is great for your heart you also might not realize the strain some activities put on your body. For athletes or anyone who is lifting, their back is heavily used and if proper form is not used then it can generate pain and injuries.. If you are experiencing low back pain , your stress levels may increase, and your heart has to work a lot harder during your activity and during resting.
Getting regular chiropractic adjustments will alleviate your back pain, and our expert chiropractors at our San Francisco Bay area clinics will help you improve your performance as well and your heart rate.
Chiropractic Care Can Help Lower Your Blood Pressure
You might have heard from us before when we talk about chiropractic care aiding in a healthy nervous system. It is because your spine and nervous system are connected. What you also need to know is that your heart and blood vessels are also connected to the nervous system. So what does this mean? You guessed it, your spine is also connected to your heart! Now, when it comes to blood pressure, just like your heart rate, you should look at the factors that are causing it. It may be stress, eating habits, strenuous activity, whatever it is, your body needs help to regulate these internal stressors on your spine that affect your heart as well as your entire body.
Getting regular adjustments by our professionals will help decrease anxiety, reduce inflammation, and lower blood pressure to help keep your heart healthy.
