Coronary Heart Disease

By 08stoneking0807 | In Blog | on December 10, 2015

Also known as coronary artery disease is a narrowing of the arteries of the heart. Narrowing is caused by a plaque build up inside the artery. This means that blood flow to the heart muscle can be decreased. When ozygen rich blood flow is completely blocked to the heart, this is a heart attack.

There are two types of risk factors associated with developing coronary heart disease – unchangeable and changeable. Unchangeable risk factors include your family history or genetics, the other is your age. Changeable risk factors include elevated “bad” cholesterol, low “good” cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, above average c-reactive protein levels, overweight, smoking, stress and leading a sedentary lifestyle.

Changeable risk factors can be prevented or reversed by making healthy lifestyle decisions. A diet including vegetables, fruit, low fat dairy and lean proteins is a start. Participating in a regular exercise program is another step toward reducing your risk.  Stop in and speak with the experts at Stoneking Physical Therapy and Wellness Center for information or help. We’re here to keep you healthy!
