American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month
Whoever your heart beats for, our hearts beat for you.
Your heart doesn’t beat just for you. Here are reasons to get it checked.
It’s important to focus on heart health every month of the year, not just in February. As the most important muscle in our body, the heart pumps nutrient-rich blood, helping us function and giving us life. In some cases, our heart provides warning signs of a problem, but many times it doesn’t.
Following are general guidelines that indicate a heart check-up is in order. It’s also important to maintain a relationship with a primary care doctor who can help you in determining cardiac risk factors and direct you to an appropriate heart specialist if needed.
