High blood pressure is a common condition that affects people of all ages, races, and social classes. Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure occurs due to a high increase in pressure levels. The condition can increase a person’s risk of developing problems such as stroke and heart disease. 

Many factors can cause high blood pressure. Most doctors prescribe medication to lower the symptoms. The best way to deal with the condition is to treat the underlying cause. Chiropractic care can help reduce or treat high blood pressure.  

Preventing Health Complications

During the early stages, high blood pressure may not exhibit symptoms. Many people do not realize that they have the condition until they go for a checkup. A doctor will be able to tell you if your pressure is not normal. 

The condition needs to be managed early to prevent life-threatening complications. If left untreated, high blood pressure can cause damage to different organs, including the heart, kidneys, and brain. It can also cause damage to the eyes and blood vessels.  

Causes Of High Blood Pressure

There are different reasons why an individual can develop high blood pressure. The factors range from environmental causes to genetics. Some factors increase an individual’s risk of developing high blood pressure. 

These factors include race, age, family history, obesity, unhealthy diet, alcohol consumption, and use of tobacco products. If you are at high risk of developing the condition, you need constant health monitoring to prevent complications. 

Regular Treatment For High Blood Pressure

Most people who are diagnosed with high blood pressure are treated using prescription medication. The medication lowers the blood pressure to get it within the normal range. 

Unfortunately, medication can treat the symptoms, but it does not deal with the root cause of the problem. Most people who seek regular treatment end up using medication indefinitely because the underlying cause is not addressed. 

Chiropractic Care For High Blood Pressure

The most effective way to treat high blood pressure is to detect and address the source and not just the symptoms. Chiropractic treatment works effectively to reduce high blood pressure. If the condition is due to prolonged stress, chiropractic therapy can help treat the stress. 

There are therapy techniques that can help reduce stress, improving overall health. A chiropractor can also offer advice on effective mind and body relaxation techniques. You can also get information about the benefits of proper posture and a healthy diet. 

Chiropractic Adjustments

Getting chiropractic adjustments can help reduce high blood pressure. Many patients experience relief immediately after the treatment. A major benefit of getting the adjustments is that you do not have to rely on medication. 

You can avoid the negative effects associated with the long-term use of medication. Your chiropractor will teach you how to “listen” to your body and understand its needs. This will help you take better care of yourself for long-term benefits. 

Chiropractic care functions on the principle that the body can heal itself. The chiropractor helps align the spine and other parts of the body that are out of proper alignment. This allows the body to function at an optimal level.

After recovering from a severe auto accident while he was in high school, in which he fractured both of his arms, several fingers and his leg, and had to undergo extensive surgeries and physical therapy.

At the same time Dr. Chris was going to Wayne State University to become a physical therapist he was introduced to chiropractic care by a high school friend who was going to Life University to become a chiropractor.  Since starting under chiropractic care, the chronic sinus infections he used to experience on a monthly basis now happen rarely, and at that time he became a chiropractic believer and converted.
