Heat causes blood vessels to dilate and can lower your blood pressure that way, to try to compensate your heart rate will increase to raise the blood pressure.
If one's heart rate is high enough they may not actually see a drop in blood pressure - for example, I can come inside after being in the heat and my blood pressure may be 102/68. Sounds good, right? Heart rate would have to be around 148-150s to do that. (Note -this is just for me and my odd BP and HR issues, though. )
Please be careful with chiropractor care, by the way. There's a nerve that go through the back of your neck that if damaged in any way can cause you to have blood pressure and heart rate issues - along with other problems. Also, rule out serious spine problems, if possible.
