 FAQs Natural Therapies: Chiropractic Adjustment 

Complementary & Natural Therapies

Complementary & Natural Therapies

Do A-Fib patients find chiropractic adjustment useful? If so, what are their results? In the past, I’ve found it helpful for other ailments. Could it help with my A-Fib symptoms?

According to the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure—mainly the spine—and its functioning. They primarily perform adjustments (manipulations) to the spine or other parts of the body with the goal of correcting alignment problems, alleviating pain, improving function, and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

There are few clinical studies focused on arrhythmia and ‘manipulation’ techniques (osteopathic or chiropractic).

An A-Fib Patient Reports

We heard from Bente Strong about how he uses chiropractic adjustment for his Vagal A-Fib.1 Vagal atrial fibrillation is often recognized by its frequent occurrence at night (nocturnal paroxysmal A-Fib).

Bente Strong wrote:

“The Vagus nerve2 is central to digestive systems and the upper chambers of the heart. Keeping that area – the neck and thoracic (upper) region of the spine – open, aligned and flexible, clearly helps. I first discovered this after 3 days and nights of non-stop A-Fib, which went away for most of the next ten days after an adjustment.

I now get a chiropractic adjustment every 2 weeks and frequently lie on my back across an exercise ball in order to stretch and adjust myself as best I can.”
