Rockwall Injury Rehab is the premier chiropractic clinic that provides superior care to help your chiropractic needs. Our chiropractors are skilled in 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 interlock one to the next, the Atlas relies solely upon soft-tissue (muscles and ligaments) to maintain alignment. If the Atlas becomes misaligned, pain will not be felt. 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 treated for an Atlas misalignment have been known to no longer need their medication to treat their hypertension. This procedure can have the effect of two blood pressure medications that are given together.

If you have hypertension, contact Rockwall Injury Rehab today for a complete diagnostic exam and evaluation. Our chiropractors will explain in detail how they can help treat your hypertension.
