High blood pressure is a well-known symptom for serious health conditions like coronary heart disease, heart failure and stroke. It occurs when the flow of blood through your arteries applies excess pressure to the artery walls. Like heart disease, it often exhibits no symptoms.
Everything in your body, including your blood vessels, is controlled by your nervous system. Excessive stress, poor diet, lack of exercise and poor spinal alignment negatively affect your nerves. Constriction of the blood vessels is triggered by the nerves directly and causes blood pressure to elevate. Many medications block this nerve input and artificially bypass this essential regulatory process. Chiropractic care looks to naturally improve neurological input and provide simple, sustainable lifestyle programs that will naturally lower one’s blood pressure without medication.
