Page 6 | Abby's Magazine | Circulation and Chiropractics Having cold extremi es is something a lot of people suffer from on a regular basis. This could mean that you are suffering from poor circula on. When a pa ent has poor circula on they can experience mul ple symptoms such as, numbness and ngling pain in your extremi es, throbbing or s nging pain in your extremi es, muscle cramps, swelling or the development of ulcers on your feet, ankles, and legs, cold hands or feet, fa gue and difficulty concentra ng. There are a lot of poten al health issues ed to poor circula on such as diabetes, obesity, varicose veins, blood clots, and Peripheral Artery disease. Studies have shown a correla on between poor circula on and vertebrae being out of alignment called subluxa on. Veins and arteries are responsible for supplying blood correctly throughout the body. So like your Central Nervous system, these pathways form a web with func ons that branch off, consolida ng more and more as they get towards the heart. The reason fingers and toes o en become cold or ngly is because they are the farthest from the heart. Even if your heart is pumping correctly there may be restric ons that do not allow the blood to flow correctly. Finding the restric ons is the key. O en spinal subluxa ons are responsible for impeding Circulatory System func on. For example, blood supplies going through the Thoracic spine that are being pushed on by a bulging disk may show a 20% reduc on in pressure due to bo leneck. This 20% reduc on slows the blood down so that by the me it reaches the extremi es there is almost zero pressure, causing coldness and other symptoms. The more the spine deviates from the norm, the more it slows down blood supply to the body. Add to this problem nerve compression, the body begins to lack circula on it needs to feed the extremi es. Most people think of chiroprac c care as spinal adjustments and pain relief as the primary reason you go to a chiroprac c office. However, a variety of problems originate from the spine. Chiroprac c care has been clinically proven to help improve blood flow to extremi es and cri cal areas of the body. In a study published by the Journal of Manipula ve and Physiological Therapeu cs in 2015, 45 pa ents with restric ons in the cervical regions, got assessed on how spinal alignment affected blood flow. 16 people showed moderate subluxa on, resul ng in 20-35% blood flow reduc on on the brain. 15 people showed severe subluxa on, with a 30-45% blood flow reduc on, and 14 people with good spine health exhibited zero loss of blood flow. Study proved that subluxa on causes restric on in blood flow. Need relief from Digestive Disorders? Back Pain? Migraines?
