High blood pressure in Houston
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure is a dangerous condition- constantly elevated levels of blood pressure put strain on the heart, weakening it and impeding its ability to work efficiently. Thus, high blood pressure puts you at elevated risk for potentially fatal diseases and conditions including stroke, sudden cardiac death, heart attack and heart failure. In its early stages, hypertension may not cause any symptoms at all, slowly damaging your body over years, often until it is too late.
How does chiropractic approach high blood pressure?
The standard treatment for high blood pressure is medication, designed to lower blood pressure, and adhering to a lifestyle that includes aerobic exercise and healthy eating. While many people are able to manage their high blood pressure well with medication, there is a long list of side effects that comes along with it. Chiropractic is a natural treatment that has been shown to be effective in allowing the body to lower its blood pressure after instrument-assisted adjustment to the thoracic vertebrae.
