Chiropractic Care Could Lower Blood Pressure

This is really exciting. A study in Chicago by MDs found that a particular chiropractic adjustment was able to lower blood pressure an average of 17 pts. systolic and 10 pts. diastolic. That’s better than many medications on the market. I saw this research at the end of last year, this is the first video I’ve seen of it.

Apparently these chiropractors were noticing their patients BP improving after care, so they took it to their local hypertension specialists at the hospital and asked if it was even possible. They were familiar with a surgical technique of decompression that had similar results. If the same thing could be accomplished without surgery it would be wonderful. The results are not conclusive, but still worth investigating. original site
