Do you or someone you know suffer from high blood pressure, aka hypertension? It’s a common condition where the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it could cause health problems such as heart disease or stroke. Typically, people use pills to lower their blood pressure, but for those who want to avoid medications, there’s chiropractic care for reducing hypertension.
Chiropractic adjustments made to the thoracic spine with the assistance of instruments can help change a person’s pulse rate. In a study with 290 adult participants, those who had instrument-assisted spinal adjustments made to their upper thoracic region experienced a decrease in both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure of about 7 percent.
Indeed, chiropractic care helps people’s musculoskeletal system and can be good for the heart, too. So often people immediately think they need a pill to “fix” their problem, but there are natural ways for the body to heal and improve itself, such as chiropractic care.
If you want to avoid the costly reliance on medication that may or may not work for reducing your high blood pressure, consider chiropractic care at Lakewoods as an alternative. Furthermore, as a person adjusts their diet, eating healthier, and exercising more, good things happen with their blood pressure. A chiropractor can encourage you to “get on the right track” with those things. It’s not unusual for a chiropractor to offer some nutritional counseling and show patients good exercises to do at home in order to feel better all over!
