High Blood Pressure
Nearly one-third of the U.S. adult population suffers from high blood pressure, and the problem continues to get worse despite the ever increasing amount of prescription drugs that are used. A study in the Journal of Human Hypertension was published which indicated that a misalignment in the bones in the top of the neck can impact blood pressure in the body. Upper cervical chiropractors have seen the effects of proper cervical posture and alignment on blood pressure for years, but this landmark study correlated the effects. In an interview with WebMD, Dr. George Bakris, MD said, “This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination… we saw no side effects and no problems.” He went on to say, “It is pretty clear that some kind of head or neck trauma early in life is related to this.”
