70000 Canadians die every year due to heart disease and more than half of these right here in the province of Ontario.
You do not get heart disease because you have bad luck. Lack of exercise, a poor diet and smoking do not do you any favors either.[flashvideo file= http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/05.11.2015.heart.disease.chiropractic-1.m4v image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/heart.disease.and_.chiropractic.jpg width=500 height=305 /]
This has been proven time and time again.
The biggest causative factor however in my opinion, is your spinal posture.
If you have forward head posture, a hump back or both, you are at a significantly higher risk of developing heart disease.
This was proven in a study that was published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society in 2004 where they followed over 1300 participants who had forward head posture and hump back for a 4 year period.
And when these participants were autopsied after death, the conclusion was ‘their posture was specifically associated with an increased rate of atherosclerosis (heart disease).’
What does this mean? It means that if you have poor posture in your neck or upper back or both, you are at a higher risk of developing heart disease.
To make sure this does not happen to you or anyone in your family, you need to have your posture checked by a chiropractor.
