Chiropractic to Lower Blood Pressure

Doctors of chiropractic generally utilize spinal manipulation to address musculoskeletal issues. Most people think that chiropractic is only good for back and neck pain. But chiropractic can do more for a person’s wellness than just relieve pain.

A recent double-blinded study compared a group of patients to see how spinal manipulation impacted their blood pressure. The researchers found that “specific thoracic spinal manipulations affected three measures: blood pressure, pulse rate, and changes in hypertension (high blood pressure) classification only in the active treatment group.”

If you are one of many people looking to reduce your blood pressure, you may want to add chiropractic care to exercise and healthy eating. The combination will get healthier faster.

    Thanks for the article on lowering blood pressure. My wife suffers from high blood pressure for several years. She has tried medications, exercise and food modification without much success. Our family chiropractor started spinal manipulation and within 2 months her blood pressure has come down. We are truly blessed to find our chiropractor.
