Chest pain is always alarming at worst, and uncomfortable at best. Once you’ve ruled out the possibility that you might be having a heart attack, you’re left with the realization that you may suffer from chronic chest pain. This can be brought on by stress, fatigue, or muscle strain, all of which can be explained by vertebral subluxations, or misalignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column. Once again, if your chest pain comes on suddenly or doesn’t go away, check with a doctor immediately to find out if you need medical treatment right away. If you just are dealing with chronic pains in your chest, you may want to consider going to see a chiropractor for your issue. Chiropractic care can relieve your chronic chest pain by targeting the areas on your body that need readjustment and realignment.
Chiropractic Care For Chronic Chest Pain
Even if you aren’t suffering from a heart attack, chronic chest pain can come accompanied with high blood pressure and a rapid heart rate (also known as tachycardia). These uncomfortable sensations will often increase the level of anxiety you feel about your health, which only causes you more chest pain and distress. All of these conditions will only increase the level of pain and discomfort you feel, and are direct symptoms of the root cause of your chronic chest pain,which a chiropractor may determine to be a vertebral subluxation.
When a vertebra is out of its proper alignment, nerves may become pinched, joints may become inflamed, and muscles as a result may become degenerated or otherwise weakened. It is possible to take medications to attempt to fix these issues, but many people find the beta-blockers and anti-inflammatory drugs simply make them sleepy, as opposed to actually treating the chronic chest pains and the symptoms that go with it.
Chiropractic care is a gentle and natural way to bring the body back to its proper state, so it can work to repair and heal itself. A chiropractor will realign the unnaturallypositioned vertebra in your spine to its natural state. When this happens, your nerves will become unburdened, and the swelling and inflammation that was causing such discomfort and tightness in your body beforehand will be eliminated. Many patients agree that they find it much easier to breather deeply and naturally after a successful chiropractic session for chronic chest pain. Sustained chiropractic treatment will help eliminate chronic chest pain altogether.
