Poor blood circulation is caused by underlying health concerns. As its own condition, bad circulation can also have adverse effects on your overall health, including decreased concentration, cold and tingly hands and feet, dizziness, chronic nausea, and more.

If you suffer from poor circulation, you may be wondering what steps you can take to naturally improve the flow of blood through your body. While the treatment of each health issue causing bad circulation varies, chiropractic care may be a reliable methodology to improve your body’s general circulation.

If your hands and feet are constantly numb or you can’t ever seem to get your extremities warm, Graybar Chiropractic may be able to help. Using a Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) approach, we help North Carolina patients understand how their spine health may be creating health concerns leading to poor circulation.

The chiropractic approach

Chiropractic healthcare is a holistic approach to treating the body as a whole, rather than just a single symptom or manifestation of illness. If you’re struggling with poor circulation – a whole-body issue – you may benefit from chiropractic adjustments.

The reason is simple: Chiropractors treat the central nervous system, which has bearing on almost every other system in the body. This can improve the health of the skeletal system, the spinal column, and the cardiovascular system. Because the spine serves as the literal ‘backbone’ of your body’s vascular system, treatment beginning at the spine is often an effective way to treat problems with blood flow.

Problems limiting circulation

In some cases, spinal subluxations are responsible for reduced blood flow. Chiropractic care can treat these slipped discs and alleviate the discomfort that they cause, both directly and through their reduced circulatory system function. If your spine has subluxations, there’s a good chance your body isn’t getting the circulation it demands.

If you’re experiencing coldness, numbness, or tingling at your extremities, it’s likely due to a blockage at some point along your cardiovascular system. Chiropractic care begins at the spine and moves outward, manipulating bones and muscles to help improve blood flow.

In addition to chiropractic care, patients have options to improve and sustain their body’s blood flow. For instance, engaging in regular cardio exercise can help keep your heart healthy and improve circulation. Additionally, eating leafy greens and root vegetables has been shown to improve circulation, as can avoiding foods like red meats and others with high cholesterol content.

Pay attention to circulation

While it may not seem like the most pressing healthcare issue, tingling hands or cold feet could indicate a serious issue with your body’s circulatory system that shouldn’t be ignored. If you suspect you’re suffering from subpar circulation, consult with a chiropractor as soon as possible.

Chiropractic BioPhysics, or CBP, is one of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. CBP-trained chiropractors aim to realign the spine back to health, eliminating nerve interference and addressing the source of pain, fatigue, and disease. As with all chiropractic care, CBP is gentle, painless, and non-invasive.
