When I was young and deciding what my future was going to be, I followed my chiropractor around his office for a few hours to see what it was like in his shoes. I remember a couple patients having high blood pressure and after the adjustment their bp had normalized.
At the time I didn’t really think that much about it, but I later learned that nerves go to blood vessels also. They don’t just control pain.
I soon learned that chronic hypertension is a common health problem and can lead to one of our #1 killers: heart attack or a stroke to name a couple problems.
In some cases we need medicine, but for chronic conditions like chronic high blood pressure that most likely means you’ll be taking medication for the rest of your life.
It’s been shown with diet, lifestyle changes, and natural treatments like chiropractic manipulation the same results can be achieved.
So, if you’re fine with taking blood pressure medication for the rest of your life, we may not be able to help … But if you need some help on how to change your diet to help high bp and want to see if manipulation can help, give our office a call.
