AFIB care in Atlanta, GA

Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is a common heart condition that can cause a rapid, irregular heartbeat. While chiropractic care may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of treating AFib, it can actually be quite helpful in managing symptoms. Chiropractors take a holistic approach to healthcare, looking at the entire body as a system rather than just focusing on one specific area. By addressing underlying issues like spinal misalignments and inflammation, chiropractic care can help reduce the severity and frequency of AFib symptoms.

Afib

One way that chiropractors can help with AFib is by balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. These systems are responsible for controlling heart rate, and when they are out of balance, it can lead to irregular heartbeats. By adjusting areas of the spine that may be putting stress on these nerves, chiropractors can help restore balance and reduce AFib symptoms.

Chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation levels in the body, which can exacerbate AFib symptoms. By addressing the root cause of inflammation, chiropractors can help reduce the stress on the cardiovascular system and prevent AFib from getting worse over time. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors can also provide lifestyle advice to help patients maintain a healthier lifestyle and reduce risk factors for AFib.

By addressing the underlying cause,

research suggests that chiropractic adjustments may positively impact the function of the heart and underlying factors contributing to AFib symptoms.
