controlling high blood pressure at Precision Spinal CarePrecision Spinal Care recommends a healthy life style for controlling high blood pressure. At Precision Spinal Care, we combine effective techniques like NUCCA- styled chiropractic, with counseling to enable you to improve your overall health, control your blood pressure and reduce high blood pressure symptoms. The Mayo Clinic is world renowned organization comprised of doctors, researchers and scientists. They offer many healthy and safe ways to reduce high blood pressure while avoiding medication. We employ these scientifically proven techniques in our practice.

Regular exercise helps to control high blood pressure.

When you exercise throughout the week on most days for 30 to 60 minutes you can lower your blood pressure up to 9 mm Hg.  In a short period of time, you’ll be able to see the results. In many cases you’ll be able to prevent full blown hypertension using this technique. Our Precision Spinal Care team will help you to develop an exercise program tailored to your needs and abilities. If you’re someone who is extremely out of shape, you might find that starting off slowly is easier for you. Even a 10 minute a day regimen can make a noticeable difference.  Your exercise plan should call for daily exercise at a sensible level of difficulty.  When you strenuously exercise in a concentrated burst of energy for brief periods of time followed by intervals in which little exercise takes place – it can be dangerous for your health. Exercising in moderation on a consistent basis is most effective.

Weight control helps you maintain healthy blood pressure.

When should you keep your weight in check? Your waistline can tell you a lot about how much you need to lose. Waistline fat lets us know when high blood pressure may be a problem. Men with a waistline over 40 inches and women with a waistline over 35 inches are at more risk than others.

Controlling your weight is one effective method you can use to reduce unhealthy blood pressure. Ten pounds of weight loss does not sound like a lot but it can have a clear effect on reducing your blood pressure. When you lose weight you are likely to decrease your blood pressure. Together with your chiropractor, you can determine the best weight goal for you and how to achieve that goal.

You can measurably reduce high blood pressure with proper diet.

Follow some easy dietary rules in order to reduce your high blood pressure. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables, low fat dairy products and whole grains can directly reduce your high blood pressure. You are likely to experience up to 14 mm HG pressure reduction.

The American Heart Association recommends that we reduce the amount of sodium in our diet. Excess sodium can lead to high blood pressure while potassium can help to maintain healthy blood pressure. A natural way to introduce more potassium into your diet is by increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables that you eat. It’s best to choose natural produce over supplements because they are more effective.
