Recent research suggests that:
Chiropractic adjustments INCREASE heart rate variability AND heart contraction power
Chiropractic care also DECREASES average resting heart rate
Why are these effects a good thing for us?
Heart rate variability (HRV) is the variation of time between each heart beat.
Higher HRV has been found to be associated with reduced morbidity and mortality, and improved psychological well-being and quality of life.
The more efficiently your heart can change it's beating rate to your situation & surroundings the more ease and adaptability there is with your whole system.
Who doesn't want a powerful heart being a boss at delivering vital Oxygen to every cell, tissue and organ in the body effortlessly?!
Lower heart rate goes hand in hand with reduced blood pressure, these markers reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases including heart attacks, stoke, organ issues and blood clots.
Autonomic nervous system and the heart:
All these health benefits are associated with an efficient monitoring and interplay between the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the nervous system.
The sympathetic reacting quickly to increase heart contraction rate and force to exercise or stress. Whilst the parasympathetic acts in the absence of stress to reduce heart rate and restore an increased heart rate variability.
An efficient balance between these zones of our nervous system is important for EVERYONE for good health & well being; including those recovering from injury, fatigue or mental strain such as anxiety and depression.
At our clinics we adjust ALL clients with these health benefits in mind.
You can improve these heart health measures with breathing exercises, meditation, exercise and adjustments.
