Could Chiropractic Care Help Your Blood Pressure?
Many people are under the impression that blood pressure can only be regulated by taking medication to balance chemicals in the body. The truth is that medications for this are actually made of substances not naturally found in the body. What if we told you it is possible for chiropractic care to help you reduce your high blood pressure? Our Edmond chiropractor would like you to know a bit more about why this can work.
The body has its own ways to maintain a normal blood pressure by utilizing sensors found in the walls of the arteries and sending signals to the heart, arterioles, veins, and the kidneys. Then, as a result these various points of origin make appropriate changes to lower or increase blood pressure. When blood pressure increases for any reason, these sensors send nerve signals to the blood pressure regulating center located in the lower portion of the brain.
Did you catch that last part? That’s right, nerve signals. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is made up of the nerve fibers that branch off from the spinal cord and extend to all parts of the body. As our Edmond chiropractor has mentioned in previous posts, and as you’ve probably heard before, the field of chiropractic care was founded on the basis that adjusting the spine helps the nervous system to work at its best.
With that being said, our Edmond chiropractor may need to be your next stop if you’re trying to correct the underlying cause of your blood pressure problems. Lowering your blood pressure really can be as simple as getting adjusted by your local, Edmond chiropractor. We look forward to seeing you and working towards restoring proper communication between the brain, heart, and arteries which will reduce blood pressure.
