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.

Testimonials

Besides making my neck and back feel better, my legs that normally bounce all over the place at night have been much calmer since doing consistent adjustments with Dr. Pete and adding the occasional massage in before or after an adjustment. I love the atmosphere in the office and the staff are pretty dang amazing too. Debi is great to help with insurance stuff.

I'm a big guy.  My neck and shoulder were killing me.I went to see Dr. Pete.  He fixed me up.I know from experience that most chiropractors don't have the strength to give me a full adjustment.  Dr. Pete got me straightened out right away.  Nice office.

Thanks,

I have known Dr. Pete for several years now. He is a caring and wonderful Chiropractor. When I go for my visits he is warm welcoming and his new front office person Joy is a delight and so helpful. My last series of chiropractic adjustments were amazing. Just with my first adjustment I walked out felling better. If you are thinking about Chiropractic...Think Dr. Pete Chiropractic.
