About 1 in every 3 Americans has high blood pressure. For the overwhelming majority, the exact cause is not known. To most, the diagnosis comes as a surprise, and a lifetime regimen of medications quickly follows.

The nerve centers that control blood pressure are located in the upper neck, as are the sensors that are built into your arteries to monitor blood pressure. When an atlas subluxation is present, it interferes with these signals, altering blood pressure, making it either too high or too low.
At Wood Chiropractic, we can determine whether or not an atlas subluxation may be a contributing factor to your high (or low) blood pressure, allowing for a natural, drug-free solution to healthy living. Many patients have been able to reduce or eliminate their medications with the supervision of their primary doctor, or avoid needing them in the first place!
