Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a prevalent and perilous condition where blood flows through the heart at an elevated pressure, potentially straining the heart, brain, and kidneys. Despite its prevalence, many individuals may not realize they have it due to a lack of direct, noticeable pain. Bainbridge Island chiropractor Dr. Brian Kovara and his team offer successful high blood pressure treatment without resorting to medications, addressing the unique causes behind each case.

Understanding High Blood Pressure

Given its often asymptomatic nature, regular blood pressure measurements are crucial, especially for those with a family history of hypertension or cardiovascular disease or those with lifestyle patterns increasing the risk. Two numbers are recorded during each blood pressure measurement:

Systolic

The pressure during heartbeats; optimal below 120, pre-hypertension between 121 and 139, and high at 140 and above.

Diastolic

The pressure between heartbeats; optimal below 80, pre-hypertension between 81 and 90, and high at 90 and above.

Chiropractic Care for High Blood Pressure Relief

Recent studies highlight the efficacy of chiropractic care, proving it to be at least as effective as commonly prescribed medications for high blood pressure relief. The rationale behind this lies in addressing mechanical interference in the spinal column that may pinch nerves and hinder proper communication between the brain and the body’s organs.

In hypertension cases, nerves influencing blood pressure may be compromised, often due to a misaligned atlas vertebra—the top vertebra beneath the skull. Dr. Brian Kovara and his associates specialize in correcting spinal misalignments, including the atlas vertebra, allowing the central nervous system to communicate effectively with the heart and restore balance.
