heart rate at hart chiropractic

Rationale

Hart Chiropractic uses heart rate tests to determine neurological progress of the patient because the tests (resting heart rate and heart rate variability) are:


a. A window on the nerve system since the nerves control heart rate


b. Supported by outcomes research showing that people with good numbers tend to live longer compared to their counterparts who have not-so-good numbers.
