It’s always important to take care of your heart, so let’s look at how chiropractic treatments can be good for your cardiac health. The distribution of the heart’s nerves comes from the thoracic region of the spinal cord, so it’s essential to keep these nerves free from impingement. Chiropractic care can do that, helping to keep your heart working properly.
Here are some other ways chiropractic care helps your heart.
Reduce blood pressure – Chronically high blood pressure puts a lot of stress on your heart’s chambers and your arteries and veins. Chiropractic manipulation has been shown to reduce blood pressure, protecting your heart.

Reduce anxiety – Chiropractic treatments can also reduce anxiety by suppressing activation of the stress response. Anxious people often experience heart palpitations and do not get enough sleep, along with other disruptions to the body’s homeostatic (stability-maintaining) mechanisms. By reducing the many unhealthy side effects of anxiety, you protect your heart and other vital bodily processes. (2)
Get more sleep – Numerous studies have proven that lack of sleep can lead to everything from stroke and heart attack to high blood pressure and heart failure, so getting more sleep is good for your heart. As noted above, chiropractic care reduces anxiety, promoting better sleep. It also reduces back, neck, and joint pain, which also helps you relax and get more benefit from your sleep cycles.
Improve lung function – To function properly, your heart needs your lungs. If your lungs are not working right, your heart muscle will not have enough oxygen to beat properly. Chiropractic care treats the musculoskeletal system to improve mechanical ventilation for your lung functions. One study on a group of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) demonstrated patients who received chiropractic treatment has less gasping breaths than those who did not receive it.

Reduce inflammation – Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce inflammation throughout the body, including inflammation in the arteries, veins, and heart that causes cardiovascular disease. The association between inflammation and spinal manipulation is not well characterized although initial research results show promising results. (4)
