According to a study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, there is additional evidence to support the notion that chiropractic care lowers a patient’s blood pressure. Although numerous studies have already corroborated this, this one focused on correcting the Atlas, also known as the uppermost bone in the neck.
While treatment with no movement of the Atlas was simulated for the control group, the experimental group did in fact receive treatment. According to the study’s results, members of the latter demonstrated a significant decrease in their blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic measures).
Relying on but one specific intervention, treatment effects persisted for a month, showing that evaluating and treating Atlas subluxations using chiropractic benefits cardiovascular health.
The much more effective method of evaluating the entire body utilizing applied kinesiology methodology obtains even better and longer lasting permanent corrections.
