Humpday Health: Chiropractic heart health
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — When you think about heart health you probably think about your cardiologist, but they are not the only ones who can help you keep the muscle beating strong.
According to Chiropractic Physician Anthony Giacalone, chiropractors are in the business of improving people’s lives. He said he treats anyone from infants to geriatrics.
Often times people don’t realize they need his help.
“It usually starts with one incident that causes a problem, whether it’s pain related, someone being diagnosed with a condition like diabetes, and what happens is they tend to slow down,” Giacalone said.
But Dr. Giacalone doesn’t just work on your alignment. He can also help folks treat cardiovascular disease. He said chiropractors are holistic doctors which means they focus on the whole body. Chiropractors can even help with things like stress.
“Stress is actually probably the number one cause of a lot of heart conditions,” Giacalone said.
One thing he said people should look into is their heart rate variability or how their heart rate pulses throughout the day.
