Your autonomic neurological system coordinates and regulates functions within the body, functions such as heart rate, digestion and respiratory rate.

Your heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV), for example, is under the direct regulation and coordination of your neurological system. A healthy heart rate and HRV is critical for overall wellbeing due to the effects blood flow has on organ function and health optimization.

Chiropractic adjustments can promote optimal autonomic neurological function due to the relationship between structure and function within the spine. Proper spinal structure can enhance the innate recuperative power of the body to function optimally due to overall body function that is coordinated by the neurological system.

Healthy heart function is a necessity for an optimal quality of life. Help keep your autonomic neurological system working at its potential by seeing your chiropractor on a regular basis!


The information in our articles are not intended to diagnose, mitigate or prescribe the use of any technique as a form of treatment for any physical conditions, symptoms or diseases. Directly consult with a qualified health care professional for any chiropractic or medical advice. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic care, one should also be aware of the existence of some risks. Risks associated with some chiropractic care may include soreness, musculoskeletal sprain/strain, and fracture. In addition, there have been reported cases of stroke associated with chiropractic care. Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic care and the occurrence of stroke; rather studies indicate that people may be consulting chiropractors when they are in the early states of a stroke. In essence, there is a stroke already in process. However, you are being informed of this reported risk.
