How Chiropractic Care Has Been Shown to Improve Blood Circulation

How Chiropractic Care Helps Blood Flow 

Do you suffer from cold feet and hands?

If you're always curled up in a blanket or dressing in layers, the concept of poor circulation isn't a revelation.

Living with cold extremities may be something you've just gotten used to. But, poor circulation is not something that is normal, and it should be addressed. 

Having proper circulation is important for your comfort and your health.

While you may have tried eating a diet that is high in iron or exercise on a regular basis to increase circulation, many people out there overlook Chiropractic Care and how it can improve their circulation. 

Having your spine adjusted by an experienced chiropractor can have long-term benefits for increasing blood circulation and helping to stabilize blood pressure.

Understanding Poor Blood Flow 

Proper circulation is important for overall health and comfort. Our blood that flows through the body provides nutrients and oxygen to every cell. If even one vertebra is out of alignment, then our circulation can be compromised. 

When our circulation is compromised, the fingers and toes often become cold and tingly because they are the furthest away from the heart.

Although the heart may be pumping blood at a normal speed, if there are restrictions between there and the extremities, healthy blood flow may be prevented. Finding the restrictions is key to returning circulation back to normal. 

Subluxations in the spine are often responsible for impeding the function of the circulatory system. The blood supply that is routed through the thoracic spine can experience a reduction in pressure due to the vertebral disc being out of alignment.

This means there is also a reduction in the circulatory force behind the blood flow to the extremities causing the coldness and tingling feeling to occur. 

Effects of Poor Circulation 

If you're suffering from poor circulation, it's quite possible to experience any of the following: 

  1. Cold or tingly hands and feet. 
  2. Decreased mental concentration or alertness. 
  3. Dizziness
  4. Nausea
  5. Migraines
  6. Fainting

Prolonged reduction in circulation can also lead to visual, hearing, and spatial problems, and could possibly increase one's chances of suffering from dementia or stroke. Since the brain runs off of oxygen, blood circulation goes hand-in-hand with healthy brain function. 

How Chiropractic Adjustments Help Blood Circulation 

Chiropractic Care may be the solution you've been looking for when it comes to improving your circulation. 

Chiropractic care has shown to improve many ailments, not just neck pain or back pain.

When your vertebrae are suffering from restrictions or joint dysfunction, blood flow can be reduced throughout the body.

In some cases, spinal subluxations are responsible for reduced blood flow.

Chiropractic care can treat these slipped discs and alleviate the discomfort that they cause, both directly and through their reduced circulatory system function.

Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve circulation by treating the joint restrictions and dysfunctions present in the spine, releasing pressure from the nerves and restoring circulation.

Chiropractic treatment focuses on the connection between the spine and the nervous system. They recognize how structural misalignment in the spine can damage and impact the nervous system.

It is a chiropractor's goal to restore the structural integrity of the spine, and therefore restore overall health.

With precise chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulations, the doctor is able to reduce pressure on the neurological tissue and reestablish normal proper mobility allowing blood flow to regulate properly. Chiropractic adjustments also relieve pain and inflammation. 

The entire human body and all its organs are connected to the nervous system. A chiropractor takes a holistic approach to treat the whole body, and not just individual areas or organs.
