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

flowergirltoday,
I do not know if the potential BP improvement from chiropractic adjustements is temporary or whether it requires lifelong treatment. The procedure that I read about is an atlas orthogonal adjustment. If you are interested, it may be worthwhile to speak with a chiropractor who is trained on the procedure.

I live in Colorado. One of the directories I checked only listed 4 chiropractors in the state who are trained on the atlas orthogonal adjustment. The procedure is a gentle adjustment aided by a machine. It is not the rapid neck adjustments that most people associate with chiropractic treatment.
