Heart disease is a leading killer in the US. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people lose their battle to heart disease, with some of them never even knowing they had issues, to begin with.
Paying close attention to your heart health by monitoring and evaluating risk can help to protect yourself from the deadly disease.
One of the best ways to check your heart’s health is with a Heart Rate Variability (HRV) test.
These tests measure the variation in the time intervals between each beat. Being able to increase and lower your heart rate is an excellent indicator of good heart health and overall body function. With a high HRV, your body shows it can efficiently change its heart rate depending on the activity you’re doing. A low HRV may show signs of the body being under stress and not responding accurately to the action you’re performing, further intensifying the pressure it is experiencing.
Luckily, there is a lot you can do to improve your HRV and protect your heart health. Since your nervous system modulates your HRV, research has shown how Chiropractic adjustments directly influence your nervous system, enhancing HRV and increasing the heart’s ability to recognize and adapt accordingly to stressors.
Chiropractic adjustments have continually been tested to show how they influence health and function far beyond simply making a positive impact on back and neck pain. Since the spinal cord is directly connected to the nervous system, many conditions can be supported through regular chiropractic care.
Overall, nervous system interference can lower heart rate variability, making a person more susceptible to conditions like heart disease. With a proactive spinal care routine, you ensure you’re protecting your nervous system, spinal function, heart health, and overall organ function.
