High Blood Pressure and Chiropractic Care
High blood pressure occurs when your blood pressure, the force of blood pushing against your blood vessels, is too high. This puts a lot of unnecessary strain on the heart and ultimately can lead to other health issues with heart disease, such as heart attack and stroke.
Often times, high blood pressure is managed with medication. However, there are a lot of lifestyle factors that determine your blood pressure too. These include nutrition, exercise, stress management, and weight loss.
How Chiropractic May Help You Naturally Manage Your Blood Pressure
The development of high blood pressure is a multifaceted culmination of issues. No matter the causes leading up to it, it results in an overworked heart. Literature shows that impaired neural circuits can affect heart health too. What affects nerve flow? Spinal alignment.
Of particular importance to heart health is the nerve energy available in the thoracic spine, or mid-back. This area of the spine houses the autonomic nervous system, the system responsible for automatically regulating our internal organs. This is what allows us to breathe, digest, and pump blood without any conscious thought.
Issues like poor postural habits, sport or work injuries, or car accidents can easily lead to spinal misalignment. When dysfunction occurs in the spine, impaired nerve energy may lead to problematic autonomic symptoms, one of them being high blood pressure.
Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is the top, results-oriented, rigorously researched treatment option available for addressing spinal misalignment. This holistic, gentle, and safe approach recognizes spine health as a base for all other health problems.
