| Stroke volume is not about improving your golf score. At least, not directly. :-)
Physiologically, stroke volume is the amount of blood your heart pumps every time it beats. The more blood pumped per heartbeat, the less times your heart has to contract to provide the needed amount of blood.
Our heart's efficiency is directly related to stroke volume. Increased stroke volume means less work for the heart.
As you do more and better aerobic exercise, you are training your heart to be more efficient. Stroke volume increases over time as a result of this exercise, and you notice a number of things. First, it's much easier to walk up hills and other inclines. Stairclimbing requires no extra effort. If you're a swimmer, you can go longer between breaths and you can stay underwater longer.
And, you notice your heart rate goes down. A good resting pulse is 60 beats or less per minute. Most people who aren't exercising have resting heart rates of 70 or greater, even 80 or greater. Less heartbeats per minute means less work for your heart.
Aerobic exercise, done correctly, makes a person much healthier overall, positively impacting many body systems.

"Dr. Brittany Gregory is awesome. She has helped me beyond words. I am even taking my children to her to help with a chronic cough in my 1 year old which is getting better. It is ear issues with my four year old. She is patient and explains everything she is doing. Well worth the visit. I went in with severe back pain and am much better. Thank you so much for everything you are doing for my family!!"- Jessica H.
"It is always pleasant to visit Maple Lake Chiropractic. The atmosphere is so friendly and easy going. The Doctors are both very personable, I have never seen them without a smile. It is always a pleasure to go there." -Diana
"I called to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hines and he got me in that afternoon. I had pain and numbness shooting into my feet and I could barely walk. After spending the time to find what was actually causing my issue, I received three adjustments that week. 3 months later I'm pain and problem free but still going every week so my issue doesn't come back. Highly recommend this office" -Matt
