It is February, Heart Month.  There are many different things that can affect the heart from high blood pressure, emotional stress and heartburn.  Luckily your Edmonton chiropractor can help with these plus more.  One of the biggest things that can affect our heart health is poor posture.  Slumped over posture does not allow your lungs to fill with oxygen or ventilate the blood completely.  Forward head posture can also have an adverse effect on the oxygenation of the blood.  Poor blood oxygenation can lead to a variety of health issues including a shortness of breath which can lead to blood and heart disease.  Regular adjustments from your Edmonton chiropractor can help increase posture, which will help your heart health.  Book your appointment at 780-430-7549.

Stress can also contribute to heart health.  We all have stress in our lives, from paying bills, to traffic jams, to deadlines.  It is how we manage our stress that can make the difference.  Regular chiropractic adjustments can help you and your nervous system manage stress in a healthier way so it does not lead to harmful effects such as high blood pressure, lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and variety of other issues.  You Edmonton Chiropractor can not only adjust your spine to help keep your nervous system healthy, but they can also give you lifestyle tips to help you relieve your stress in the first place.  For more information check out www.whitemudchiro.com

Poor posture and stress can also contribute to another heart ailment, heartburn.  Many people suffer from heartburn on a daily basis.  A hunched over posture does not allow the digestive system to function at its best, this can contribute to many digestive issues, including heartburn.  Regular spinal care can not only improve your posture, it can also ensure that your nervous system is functioning at its best, which control all other systems including your digestion.  For more information call your Edmonton chiropractor at 780-430-7549.
