The Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research offered a recent case study that demonstrates a correlation between Chiropractic Adjustments and the reduction in risk associated with developing some form of heart disease.
According to the organization’s report, a 54-year-old patient who received ongoing Chiropractic treatment was able to stabilize his lipid panel in just six months.
Interestingly enough, other forms of interventions, such as exercise and diet adjustments, were not introduced into the study as means for complimenting their treatment.
February is National Heart Health Month, and because of that, the Chiropractors at AICA Tucker are helping our patients become more proactive in supporting the health and performance of their cardiovascular system.
One of the more simple ways you can go about strengthening your heart is by correcting your posture.
Studies show that not only is maintaining proper posture beneficial for your shoulders, neck, and spine, but it also helps improve the strength of your heart.
Chiropractic Care Improves Heart Health
Research shows that the correlation between heart health and good posture is related to how poor posture in the spine and rib cage affects the heart and lungs.
It also appears to be related to the muscular strain that takes place when you hunch forward or strain your neck.
According to the American Heart Association, Heart Disease has served as this nation’s leading cause of death since the 1920’s, taking over 600,000 lives each year.
The medical costs of treatment exceed over $400 billion annually.
If you are familiar with the popular expression, “My heart is killing me,” you might think about it differently if you knew just how common the reality of this statement is for millions of people.
