High Blood Pressure Treatment

Hypertension is more commonly known as high blood pressure. This is a dangerous and common condition where the heart is working way too hard to push blood through the body causing abnormal pressure. This can stress not only the heart but all organs of the body such as the brain and kidneys. The current statistics show that 1 out of every 3 people in America have it and that many do not even realize it. This is thought to be due to how little direct or obvious pain can be associated with early onset hypertension. The causes behind each individual case of hypertension are unique and can vary with lifestyle, genetic and other health and disease concerns. Unchecked high blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, kidney failure and stroke. While medication is the most common route to alleviating hypertension, these medications come with several undesirable side effects. The good news is that chiropractic care can help naturally.

What You Need to Know about High Blood Pressure

Because high blood pressure rarely exhibits pain, it should be measured at every checkup. If you have a family history of hypertension or cardiovascular disease, or if you have lifestyle patterns that boost your risks, you should be monitored more regularly.

Chiropractic Care Can Provide Relief from High Blood Pressure

Several recent studies have shown that skilled chiropractic care is at least as effective as two widely-used medications at providing high blood pressure relief. If that sounds shocking, it shouldn’t. Any mechanical interference in the spinal column that pinches nerves prevents proper communication between the brain and the body’s organs. In the case of hypertension, nerves affecting blood pressure can be affected by a misaligned atlas vertebrae. This is the very top vertebra in your spine, situated directly under your skull.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our doctors can correct this and other spinal misalignments so that your central nervous system can communicate with your heart, bringing it back into balance.
