High Blood Pressure? Chiropractic Care in Newark Can Help!

The human body is amazing. Just think of all the activities it manages on a day-to-day basis that you don’t even have to think about – breathing, blinking, heartbeats, digestion, etc. These unconscious activities are governed by the Autonomic Nervous System, which is made up of two parts: Sympathetic and Parasympathetic.

The Sympathetic division is our “fight or flight” or survival division. It’s vital in crisis or stressful situations and acts as the body’s gas pedal, ramping it up for action. The converse of this division is the Parasympathetic division. The Parasympathetic division is the brakes to the gas pedal. It is important for rest, growth, relaxation, and digestion and is the mode in which we ideally spend most of our life.

One thing that is highly affected by our Autonomous Nerve state is blood pressure. When there is nerve interference, the Sympathetic division can become dominant pushing the body into a constant state of fight or flight – and raising blood pressure.

Chiropractic Care For High Blood Pressure
There has been some study and evidence that chiropractic adjustments to the upper and lower neck can help reduce high blood pressure by restoring the Autonomic Nervous System to its natural state, the Parasympathetic state.

This is wonderful news for people who suffer from high blood pressure and want to reduce or eliminate the use of blood pressure medications. While chiropractic care may not be the answer to every instance of high blood pressure, it may offer non-medical, drug-free relief for certain people.

If you are suffering from high blood pressure, make an appointment at Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center or call 302-368-1300 to find out of chiropractic care can help you manage your high blood pressure.
