Blood pressure testing

Blood pressure is a fantastic indicator of your overall health. It is often the case that the higher your blood pressure, the higher your risk of developing health problems in the future. A high blood pressure usually indicates an extra strain on your arteries and heart.

The aim is usually to reduce pain or support the functionality of your body, as well as to educate about how you can account for your own health via exercise or other therapies to reduce your issues.

Chiropractors focus on the intimate relationship between the nervous system and the spine – in particular, the belief that biomechanical and structural derangement of your spine can affect your nervous system. Chiropractors also believe that chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of your spine, reduce pressure on sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve your overall health and wellbeing.
