C1 Adjustment: Cracking High Blood Pressure

Did you know that 1 in 3 adults suffer from high blood pressure? For some individuals, special chiropractic adjustments may help lower blood pressure. This is because the spine affects many parts of your body, including your heart and blood flow. Watch this video for more information:

Recap: Spinal alignment has been proven to be connected to overall health, including blood pressure. Specifically, the C1 vertebra at the top of the spine has been shown to be critical to healthy blood pressure. In a study of 25 patients who received a C1 adjustment and 25 who received a placebo procedure, the patients who received the C1 chiropractic adjustment experienced lowered blood pressure by an average of 17 points. Patients normally require 2 blood pressure medications to achieve the same results. 

Traditional blood pressure treatment can be supplemented or even replaced with chiropractic care. Through a C1 adjustment, patients achieve improved circulation and reduced pain. The improved blood flow allows oxygen and nutrients to reach the different parts of the body faster, improving overall health. 

The bottom line is if you or a loved one have high blood pressure, you are likely to experience lowered blood pressure and improved overall health through chiropractic care. You may even be able to stop taking blood pressure medication through a C1 adjustment. See how your health can be improved through chiropractic care.
