So many people think that chiropractic is good only for back and neck pain. You might be surprised to learn that Dr. Doug Howell Chiropractic & Wellness, your Frankfort, KY chiropractor, may also help you with other health problems, including high blood pressure.
Many people suffer from hypertension. Many different factors may raise your blood pressure, from genetics to excessive sodium intake to stress. Well, one way to help lower this potentially life-threatening condition may be through regular chiropractic adjustments.
Research confirms that chiropractic care may have the ability to lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. This is important since both numbers can ultimately affect your quality of life if they wander outside of the safe zone, ultimately putting you at risk of heart attack, stroke, and other life-changing or sometimes life-ending conditions.
In fact, a 2007 study found that chiropractic adjustments may be as effective as, "not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination." This landmark study was even reported on WebMD!
In some cases, chiropractic may be just enough to lower the amounts of your blood pressure medication, if not eliminate its need entirely. Of course, diet, exercise, and stress relief can certainly help with blood pressure issues as well, but when you combine these with regular chiropractic care, you may increase your chances of healthier numbers that much more!
