Chiropractic Care for Lower Blood Pressure


Posted by Heather J.

One trip to the chiropractor could cause a blood-pressure drop equal to taking two hypertension drugs at once, according to research from the University of Chicago Medical Center. The study focused on an adjustment that targets the Atlas vertebra, the bone that works to hold up the head. The Atlas vertebra was misaligned in 50 percent of patients with high blood pressure. After treatment, subjects who received an adjustment experienced a significant drop in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

It sounds logical. I m all tensed up most of the time and if someone touches you

it relaxes you.

Makes sense.  Physically working on the body is better than taking a drug.
I think Yoga can help out too!
