Untreated high blood pressure does more than just increase the risk for heart attacks. High blood pressure damages the arteries, increasing the risk for an enlarged left heart, coronary artery disease and heart failure. High blood pressure is also linked to a host of serious health problems, including stroke, dementia and kidney failure. Even moderately elevated blood pressure can impact your quality of life, contributing to issues such as erectile dysfunction in men.
Chiropractic adjustments, including the specialized Atlas Orthogonal adjustment, are a safe, effective drug-free option for regulating high blood pressure. The atlas vertebrae is the top vertebrae of the cervical spine. Adjusting the atlas vertebrae brings the entire spine into alignment and improves communication between the brain and the body.
