Doctors of chiropractic generally utilize spinal manipulation to address musculoskeletal issues. Most people think that chiropractic is only good for back and neck pain. But chiropractic can do more for a person’s wellness than just relieve pain. It turns out, it may be beneficial for lowering blood pressure, too.
A recent double-blinded study compared a group of patients to see how chiropractic spinal manipulation impacted their blood pressure. The researchers found that “specific thoracic spinal manipulations affected three measures: blood pressure, pulse rate, and changes in hypertension (high blood pressure) classification only in the active treatment group.”
If you are one of many people looking to reduce your blood pressure, you may want to add chiropractic care to exercise and healthy eating. The combination will get healthier faster.
