According to Dr. Jack Wolfson, cardiologist, everyone should have regular chiropractic care. He says it’s good for your health, your body and especially for your heart. Along with the heart healthy Paleo diet, these are his most important tools in preventing heart disease.
The heart and blood vessels are connected to the central nervous system by millions of tiny connections. One major attachment is the vagus nerve (which comes from the brain) and the autonomic nervous system (which has input into the entire body). These nerves control heart rate and blood pressure, both essential factors for heart health. Since chiropractic care positively impacts these nerves, its benefits to the heart are tremendous.
6 Heart Health Benefits
There are six proven ways chiropractic care helps prevent or treat cardiovascular disease:
Other Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Good chiropractic care benefits much more than just your heart. You name the disease, chiropractic care has a role because the nervous system touches every cell in the body. The nerves travel from the brain through the spine and on to the rest of the body. If the bones of the spine are out of whack, symptoms and disease occur. If you have ever fallen out of bed, been in a car accident, or played sports, I assure you that your spine is misaligned. Dr. Wolf says that you should not even bother asking your medical doctor or orthopedic surgeon if chiropractic is right for you. Chiropractors are competition for those who recommend pills and procedures. You will get a biased opinion from most physicians. Instead, ask the millions of people who see chiropractors every day. Gentle safe chiropractic adjustments seem like a better approach that spinal surgery or short term fixes like epidural injections. Don’t you agree?

...It's been 3 months since I began chiropractic care. Not only can I sleep, cook, shop and function on a daily level, I am also starting to get back some of my own energy level and a bounce back in my step. Something I thought I had lost due to age. I have more color in my face and less "cloudy" thinking and forgetfulness. I have also gained back a 1/2 inch in height.
