Hypertensive patients are often counseled to make healthy lifestyle changes such as losing weight, increasing exercise, and reducing sodium, sugar, and alcohol intake. Quitting smoking is another important way to reduce blood pressure.
Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation can treat hypertension on a number of fronts. First, and most importantly, our practitioners will locate and eliminate any misalignment in the spine that may be leading to hypertension.
Our practice focuses not just on specific spinal misalignments (for example, the subluxation of the Atlas vertebra, as discussed above) but targets overall posture, aligning the spine with gravity in order to promote complete health while lowering blood pressure. This method is known as Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), an innovative and scientific approach to total wellness through chiropractic.
It is also important for hypertensive patients to find ways to reduce stress. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation was created with this objective in mind. Our practice offers therapeutic massage, as well as other services (such as acupuncture) toward the goal of reducing stress and improving health.
If you are interested in lowering your blood pressure without the use of medication, please call us at 732-345-1377 or complete the form above.
