Richardson Injury Rehab is a superior chiropractic clinic that provides exceptional care to help your chiropractic needs. Our chiropractors are trained in a special chiropractic adjustment that can significantly lower hypertension (high blood pressure).

Chiropractors can help hypertension by treating an Atlas misalignment. The Atlas vertebra (the C-1 vertebra), is located at the base of the skull. Unlike other vertebrae, which are held together by one another, the Atlas relies solely upon soft-tissue (muscles and ligaments) to maintain alignment. If the Atlas becomes misaligned, you will not feel any pain. Therefore, Atlas misalignments are often undiagnosed and untreated. If the Atlas vertebra gets misaligned, even a half of a millimeter, problems can arise. The position of the Atlas can have an affect on the functioning of the brainstem, and therefore, can affect blood pressure.

Chiropractic manipulation can adjust the position of the spine and relieve the pressure on the spinal cord. Patients that have had an Atlas misalignment corrected have been known to no longer need their medication to control their hypertension. This procedure can have the effect of two blood pressure medications that are given together.

If you have hypertension, contact Richardson Injury Rehab today for a complete diagnostic exam and evaluation. Our chiropractors will thoroughly explain how they can help regulate your hypertension.
