Over 30% of adult Americans suffer with high blood pressure. HBP is accountable for over fifty thousand deaths ever year. Pharmaceuticals are prescribed regularly to combat this problem. Despite these efforts, the number of diagnoses continue to climb.
High blood pressure occurs when the force of blood flow through the blood vessel walls is too high. This subsequently makes the heart work harder, sometimes at dangerous levels. The condition contributes to a host of other health problems, as well.
Studies show that the brain and brain stem play an integral role in the regulation of blood pressure. For your body to perform optimally you must have appropriate communication between the brain and the body. Dr. Peddy, and all Upper Cervical chiropractors, help reestablish that communication by adjusting your atlas and axis, often resulting in the patient forgoing blood pressure medications for this natural alternative.
