When you think of health care do you think medication and surgery? These are very important tools to treat sickness but what if we could avoid such tools with the use of preventive care? With proper nutrition and chiropractic care such extreme measures could be avoided!

A 4 year claims data analysis compared 700,000 people with chiropractic care benefits to those with out by the Department of Health Services, UCLA School of Public Health, LA, California. The outcome of their analysis concluded that those with access to chiropractic care may experience reduced spending overall for health care!

The reasoning:
1) The health benefits of substituting chiropractic care for traditional medical care
2) More conservative and less invasive care
3) Chiropractic care is lower in cost than medical care

Access to managed chiropractic care not only may prove to be clinically beneficial but also may reduce overall health care costs! So when considering health care benefits and you budget remember that the investment you make in your health now will save you money and pain in the future!

Chiropractic Care and Heart Health

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013


Can Chiropractic care aid in the prevention of heart disease?! The number one leading cause of death in America is heart disease which claims an average of 574,689 lives per year. Current research supports that a healthy spine helps to prevent heart attacks, lowers blood pressure, reduces heart rate and supports the cardiovascular system!

How can chiropractic care aid in developing a healthy heart? The Palmer Chiropractic College released research that observed the effects of chiropractic treatment on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system related to heart rate variability. They found that regular chiropractic adjustments do reduce pain and lower patient’s mean heart rate.

The Journal of Manipulation and Physiological Therapeutics reported the results of a study on the systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels and anxiety levels of a patient before and after regular chiropractic care. They found that developing a healthy spine with consistent adjustments lead to a distinct drop in blood pressure and anxiety levels. Chiropractic care doesn’t just make a healthy spine but a healthy heart as well!
