Re: What do you all think about chiropractic treatment to lower HBP?

Personally,
I wouldn't let any chiropractor fiddle anywhere NEAR my axis vertebra. THe risks with neck manipulations include STROKE, neurological disorders, etc.

There is no good evidence that any manipulation of the Atlas vertebra will lower blood pressure. I judge such claims to be pure QUACKERY!

Chiropractors have their place, but NOT in blood pressure management.
