Chiropractic Care And
Heart Health

This is a case history of a 65 yo male who came to me with concerns about his neck posture (forward head posture and upper back humping) and he was also having some heart health issues.

Regarding his heart, he was on medication because when the left ventricle contracted it would only eject 27% of the volume of blood contained within the chamber.This was borderline severe heart failure because normal for men is between 52 and 72%; slightly higher for females.

We agreed on a chiropractic care plan to correct the forward head posture and the upper back humping.It is important to understand that the upper thoracic spine is where a lot of the nerves originate that supply the heart muscle.

Hyper-kyphosis or humping in this region can compress these nerves altering heart function.

It was around 8 months after starting care that this patient shared the joyous news that the most recent check-up with his cardiologist revealed his heart was now functioning at the 52% mark (low end of normal) and he could now start to reduce his medication.He did not like the way they made him feel.

He profusely thanked me for healing his heart but this is where we had to change the languaging a bit.

I explained to him that I did not “heal” his heart.His body healed itself; all I did was turn on the switch.

The takeaway here is that the human body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism provided there is minimal or no nerve interference.Miracles can happen and do happen every single day with chiropractic adjustments.
