Can a Chiropractor help with Poor Circulation
If you’re suffering from poor circulation, you might benefit from chiropractic in Alameda/Oakland.
Decreased blood flow needs to be addressed as early as possible. It can lead to damaged brain cells, stroke, kidney disease and visual, spatial and hearing problems.
What is poor circulation?
The circulatory system is responsible for transporting blood, including oxygen and nutrients, to all organs in the body. When blood flow to an organ is reduced, it is poor blood circulation.
Usually poor circulation usually occurs in the extremities.
Symptoms of poor circulation
Common symptoms include:
- Numbness and tingling in the extremities;
- Throbbing or stinging pain in your extremities;
- Cold hands and feet;
- Swelling in the feet, ankles, and ankles;
- Muscle cramps.
In addition, poor circulation also manifests in fatigue, poor memory, cognitive disorders, venous insufficiency and digestive system problems.
What is the cause of poor circulation?
There are many causes of poor circulation, including:
- Peripheral artery disease;
- Overweight and obesity;
In addition, one contributing cause of poor circulation is poor posture, which can shift the bones of your vertebrae out of alignment. Misaligned vertebrae put pressure on the nerves flowing out of the spine, affecting their ability to communicate properly with the rest of your body, including your circulatory system.
If you have poor circulation in your legs and feet, your fifth lumbar vertebra might be out of alignment. The fifth lumbar nerve controls the lower legs, ankle and feet. If your vertebra is out of alignment, symptoms can include swollen ankles, cold feet, and pain or numbness in the legs and feet.
The source of poor circulation might also be from misalignment of the bones in your neck. Consider the fact that breaking your neck can cause paralysis. Although less severe than a neck fracture, a misaligned neck vertebrae can interfere with your spinal cord. You might even lose some function in the leg, ankle and foot.
