CLA Update: Chiropractic Care Lowers Blood Pressure

April 24, 2014

Preliminary studies show that chiropractic care can significantly lower blood pressure for some people. With nearly one third of Americans suffering from symptoms of high blood pressure, these results are very encouraging.

Since high blood pressure can lead to many serious illnesses such as stroke, heart disease and more, it is not a condition to be taken lightly. In most cases, powerful medications that have potentially adverse side effects are used to bring blood pressure under control. In contrast, chiropractic care can be a natural and holistic way for you to get your body functioning correctly so it can manage your blood pressure.

One study conducted to date showed that spinal adjustments in patients with neck conditions or anxiety have experienced significantly lower blood pressure than others who were given a placebo care plan. In another study that focused on African Americans — who are more susceptible to hypertension — patients received chiropractic adjustments over a one-year period, and their blood pressure was taken three times over the course of the research. The only participants that did not see a significant decrease in blood pressure were those who had a basal metabolic index higher than 50. It is thought that those who are also dealing with obesity showed greater resistance to spinal adjustments to successfully lower their blood pressure.

For those who suffer from high blood pressure, results indicate that chiropractic spinal adjustments may significantly improve their health without the use of medications that can have serious side effects. Your doctor of chiropractic can perform an analysis to determine in you are indeed a chiropractic case and can also recommend exercises and diet changes to provide whole-body improvement. Choosing a natural care plan may lead to an overall improvement in your general well-being that typical medical treatments can’t provide.
