How Chiropractic Adjustments Impact Hypertension
Do you feel busy or stressed out or that there’s just not enough hours in the day to get everything done? Modern life can be very hectic with work and family commitments, endless emails, and constant messages coming through on our phones. When things get too much for us, we sometimes forget to pay enough attention to looking after ourselves and we may eat and drink too much and don’t get enough exercise. If this goes on for too long, it can have an impact on our health, in particular, it can lead to high blood pressure. This can be a real problem because high blood pressure, or hypertension, is a risk factor for stroke and other heart diseases that play a role in about 1 in 5 deaths worldwide.
For people with high blood pressure, usually, the best thing they can do to help themselves is to make changes to their lifestyle, like reducing the amount of salt they eat, or getting active, or drinking less alcohol, and eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables. It may seem a little strange, but one other healthy option that some people turn to when they have high blood pressure is chiropractic care.
