How Does Chiropractic Help With Hypertension?

High blood pressure is the most common symptom of hypertension. By using the Atlas Orthogonal technique to realign the Atlas vertebrae, your chiropractor can cause your blood pressure to drop. Research has shown that this procedure can reduce the patient’s blood pressure by an average 14 mm Hg drop in systolic and an average 8 mm Hg drop in diastolic blood pressures.

Is It Safe to See a Chiropractor in Austin for Hypertension?

If you are currently seeing a medical doctor and taking prescription medication for hypertension, contact that doctor prior to seeing a chiropractor in Austin. This will ensure that your doctors are in alignment with the different therapies you are using for treatment.

How Long Do I Have to Continue Chiropractor Treatment for Hypertension?

According to the research available treatment would have to continue for the patient’s blood pressure to remain at the low rate. Additionally, getting chiropractic treatment to reduce your hypertension doesn’t resolve the main cause of hypertension. Therefore, some patients will do well to use lifestyle counseling and nutritional advice in conjunction with chiropractic care.At Whitehead Chiropractic patients benefit from this holistic approach of providing lifestyle advice along with treatment. It helps them to prevent hypertension from advancing beyond stage two, while also reducing the other causes of high blood pressure, such as what they are eating and their exercise levels.
