One in three deaths in the United States are attributed to heart disease. While most of us know that poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking and genetics are risk factors for heart disease, many of us don't know that the nervous system plays an important role in heart function.
Nerves from the upper back and neck must work in balance for proper heart function. Spinal misalignments interfere with these nerves and therefore with heart function.
Chiropractic adjustments have shown promise for patients with heart disease or high blood pressure. A 1995 study found improvement in cardiac arrhythmias after upper back and neck adjustments. A 1988 study found a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in those who had chiropractic adjustments. A 1993 case study of a 38 year old man with a 14 year history of hypertension found that after just 7 adjustments, he was able to discontinue his medications.
While chiropractic care doesn't attempt to treat or cure heart disease, correction of vertebral misalignments has shown to greatly improve nerve function and allows the body to perform at its full potential.
