Hello everyone for this weeks blog I am going to talk about High Blood pressure and the Chiropractic adjustment.
High blood pressure is a common condition in which the force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
Blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.
You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.
High blood pressure typically develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it.
Now that we know what High blood pressure is lets talk about how beneficial a Chiropractic Adjustment is for lowering blood pressure. With all the research that is out there it has been found that with High blood pressure the first bone (Vertebrae) in your neck is subluxated (misaligned). Now when a Chiropractor gives a specific adjustment to the atlas which is your first bone in your neck, research has proven that it dramatically lowers the patients blood pressure. I would like everyone to read the first article that I have put with this blog. Its from the ABC news and they talk about how powerful the Chiropractic adjustment helps with lowering the BP, its more effective than BP medication. How amazing is that by taking pressure off your nerves helps the body heal naturally without using medications which always tend to have side effects associated with them.
Its interesting that when we have misalignment’s in the spine that they can cause numerous issues within our bodies. That is why it is so important to get your spine checked and adjusted all the time. Make sure that you don’t have problems and rather prevent them from happening.
Here are some articles associated with Chiropractic adjustments and lowering blood pressure.

In a time where our culture seems to embrace the organic and natural way, it is disturbing to see the percentage of non-natural births increase every year in the United States. This is not meant to make someone feel bad if you needed an intervention like a c section, but the WHO (World Health Organization) […]
1) Shoulder/Neck sprain /strain While “kipping” is not the cause of all of the time, it is a factor for most cross-fit gym goers. While kipping is great for gymnastic movement, coordination, and getting extra reps in when the classic strict pull up would not work, the “kip” can easily lead to shoulder/neck strain/sprain, and […]
