High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a serious health condition that causes a patient's blood to press against artery walls with too much force.

If the patient's blood pressure remains high for an extended period of time, he or she may be at risk of developing heart disease or stroke. Fortunately, this condition is highly treatable through diet and exercise. Severe cases may call for a prescription medication, but this phase of a patient's care is typically managed by his or her primary care physician. At AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Centers, we firmly believe in the power of diet and exercise for most cardiovascular conditions. In the case of high blood pressure, our team may recommend a comprehensive physical therapy regimen and nutrition counseling to help patients lower their blood pressure.
