The dangers of hypertension or high blood pressure can be fatal. Some of the main causes of death in different parts of the world are heart disease and stroke directly related to high blood pressure. In most cases, patients are given certain medications to manage or lower their high blood pressure. Even though there are other healthier treatment and prevention methods like exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, chiropractic care, and avoiding tobacco, they are commonly overlooked.
Fortunately, recent studies revealed that there is a new way to protect ourselves from the dangers posed by high blood pressure – chiropractic treatment. The results showed that there were positive effects on the blood pressure and pulse rate after chiropractic manipulation were made to the thoracic spine with the help of other instruments compared to groups that received placebo or no treatment of any kind.
