Men's Health Month: How Chiropractic Adjustment can Resolve Hypertension
Did you know that the risk of developing high blood pressure increases for men after turning age 45?
This risk is even greater for African-American men, as genetics play a role in their developing it earlier in life. What’s most dangerous about the development of high blood pressure and hypertension in men, is that it develops quietly. Men often allow their health to go unchecked for long periods of time, leaving conditions such as these undiagnosed and untreated for far too long.
What exactly is High Blood Pressure, you ask?
Hypertension occurs when the blood pumping through the circulatory system is under too much pressure, causing too much force to your artery walls.
Hypertension / high blood pressure can lead to aneurysms, stroke, blood clots, heart and kidney failure, damage to blood vessels in the eyes resulting in blindness and even dementia.
Did you know that regular Chiropractic care can lower high blood pressure?
The ‘Atlas’ chiropractic adjustment has been proven to do the job of two blood pressure medications. According to WebMD, “the procedure realigned the Atlas vertebra -- the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine -- with the spine”, the base of the brain where the two centers that control all the muscles of the body. When the Atlas or C1 vertebra gets out of alignment it creates pressure that can result in high blood pressure.
