High Blood Pressure

Upper Cervical Procedure Offers Hope To Those With High Blood Pressure. A non-invasive and drug-free procedure has been shown to significantly reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension, according to an exciting study published in the Journal of Human Hypertension. 

 
 

The American Heart Association states that high blood pressure, or hypertension, is defined in an adult as a systolic pressure of 140 or higher and/or a diastolic pressure of 90 or higher. Nearly one in three adults in the United States suffers with high blood pressure and over 50,000 people die each year as a result of this condition. In fact, what is more startling is that the actual number of deaths from high blood pressure rose 56% between 1994 and 2004, despite an increase in prescription drug use to combat hypertension.
