Columbus-based Dr. Kathleen Inman, D.C., stated, “A 55-year-old male with a 20-25 year history of hypertension presented to a chiropractic office for care. Various medication combinations had been used without success in maintaining normal blood pressure.”
Today, one in three people are diagnosed as hypertensive and are at risk for other cardiovascular related diseases, such as heart attack, renal failure, stroke and increased mortality. An estimated 55% of patients with hypertension who are already on anti-hypertensive medication remain hypertensive, and the U.S. it is estimated to have spent $63.5 billion on the direct and indirect cost of hypertension.
“The patient received upper cervical specific chiropractic care over a seven month period. Through the course of 7 months care, the patient received one upper cervical adjustment and the blood pressure progressively lowered”, said Dr. Inman.
“The findings presented in this case study suggest than an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment may benefit patients who have unresolved chronic hypertension.” said Dr. Inman.
