“These findings offer a clear rationale
for manipulative treatments of the
neck.”said researchers. Chiropractic
adjustments help to increase the
mobility of your neck and help to
decrease your necks muscle spasm
and tightness that is often caused by
poor posture. This decrease in your
neck’s tightness after chiropractic
manipulation changes the signals
going to the brain, which in turn alters
your blood pressure.

Treating a Stiff
Neck Could Reduce
Blood Pressure

Chiropractors have long
known that relieving neck
stiffness and pain through
chiropractic manipulation
can lower blood pressure.
Much of the medical community has
been skeptical about the effectiveness
of adjustments until the last few
years. In an article on the Medical
News Today website, researchers
discovered that there is in fact a
connection between your head and
neck posture and your blood pressure.

This study, which was also published
in the Journal of Neuroscience,
provides evidence for the relationship
between the positioning of your neck
and certain areas of your brain that
control certain body functions such as
blood pressure, heart rate, and
breathing. Research identified how
the neck muscles and nerves are
related to one another and how those
nerves connect to your brain.
“Posture affects and
moderates every physiologic
function, from breathing to
hormonal production. Spine
pain, headache, mood, blood
pressure, pulse, and lung
capacity are among the
function most easily
influenced by posture.”

Poor posture in many cases is the
cause of neck tightness and muscle
spasm. Remember that “fixing” your
bad posture not only can make you
feel better by removing the increased
stress on your neck muscles, but it
also helps to remove any added stress
to the neck. In many cases this can
help to correct some blood pressure
Improving your posture is just one of
the many things that can lead to
better health and better overall blood
