Recent statistics show that 1 in every 3 American adults has hypertension, otherwise known as high blood pressure. High blood pressure or hypertension is also often referred to as a “silent killer” since it does not present itself with clear symptoms. One might already have hypertension and might not even be aware of it. The only way to know is to have your blood pressure checked.

Normal blood pressure ranges from 120/80 mm Hg and 139/89 mm Hg. These numbers spike up to 140/90 or more when one has hypertension.

If you have family members who have had high blood pressure, there is a chance that you may also have it since it can be passed on through genetics. Other causes include a high sodium diet, lack of exercise, stress, poor diet, alcohol, or some medications.

In modern medicine, people who have hypertension are given maintenance medication in order to deal with it. However, we all know that drugs are more likely to have side effects. It’s a good thing that Acupuncture has been studied and proven to help patients with hypertension improve.

Does Acupuncture Help Lower Blood Pressure?

Acupuncture is a widely known practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In acupuncture, it is believed that the body is composed of numerous points and pathways where energy flows. When these pathways are blocked, sickness occurs.

In TCM, hypertension is seen as a condition when the heart has to perform harder than normal. This causes disruptions in energy flow. Acupuncture has been proven to help curb blood pressure and provide relief from hypertension.

Wellington Chiropractor Dr. Dresner has had a lot of experiences treating people with Acupuncture. Certified to use acupuncture, he carefully assesses every patient’s needs before suggesting acupuncture treatment that works best. Since hypertension can be caused by many different things, the approach also varies from one person to another.

Acupuncture treatment for hypertension or high blood pressure may be suggested together with exercise and a good diet. A study showed that having acupuncture side by side with hypertension medicine improved the health of participants well.

Unlike usual modern medicine, Acupuncture has been proven to be 100% safe and effective and will not cause any side effects. In the Dresner Chiropractic Center, a patient can rest assured that needles are clean and are never re-used.

Dr. Dresner can determine the cause of hypertension by evaluating symptoms like dizziness, headaches, numbness, and other conditions. After an assessment, the most appropriate acupuncture treatment can be suggested and a treatment plan can be followed.

In this fast-paced life, it is easy to just forget about a lot of things and oftentimes neglect our health. Don’t let yourself get surprised by silent but deadly diseases. Have your blood pressure checked and if you find out that you are experiencing hypertension, seek help at once.
