Chiropractic Treatment to Reduce High Blood Pressure
Misalignment of the Atlas vertebra has been shown to cause stress on the nervous system, its blood supply and increased blood pressure. Correction of this subluxation has been shown to reduced arterial blood pressure. Published case studies are documented in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research.
Dr. Dickholtz, Sr. documented this decrease in blood pressure in a study published in The Journal Of Clinical Hypertension utilizing a chiropractic technique very similar to Atlas Orthogonal. For more information, please see is study Achievement Of Blood Pressure Goal with Atlas Realignment.
