High Blood Pressure Reduced Through Chiropractic Care

Hypertension, high blood pressure, hypertension, blood pressure, low blood pressure, blood pressure, hypertensive, preeclampsia, heart attack, systolic, diastolic, artery, arteries, arterioles, arterial damage, low blood pressureHigh blood pressure or hypertension is the force at which a person’s blood presses against the artery walls. If this force is too high, it can lead to numerous diseases such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

High blood pressure is the leading cause of death in developed countries. Approximately 76 million people over 21 are diagnosed with it and 1 out of every 3 of them live in the United States. Under the age of 21, 28 million suffer. Only about 52% of these actually have their blood pressure under control. This is very dangerous because of the above conditions as well as the fact that it can cause premature death.

Finding Help for High Blood Pressure Through Natural Means

The majority of primary care physicians are going to recommend taking medicine to help control your hypertension. However, these medications come with dangerous and unwanted side effects. This is causing people to look into more natural means to cope with their blood pressure. Oddly enough, one area that has seen success in helping with this condition is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. Why is this so?

Numerous studies have revealed that if one of the top bones of the neck – the atlas (C1) and axis ((C2) – are misaligned, it can negatively impact the force of blood moving through the arteries and walls of blood vessels. Not only does the proper alignment of these bones improve blood pressure, but the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations noted an improvement in physiological conditions as well.

Here at Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we use a gentle technique called atlas orthogonal to help realign the bones of the upper cervical spine. A misalignment of this type puts the brainstem under stress and can make it send faulty signals to the brain. Blood flow can also be hindered, leading to high blood pressure. Once corrected, many patients report better blood pressure numbers and overall better health.
