Research supports claims of local Chiropractor
SIMI VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Masoud Shamaeizadeh, founder of Soft Touch Chiropractic, has long maintained that techniques exist to naturally reduce dependence on many prescription drugs, including blood pressure medications. A recent study published in the Journal of Human Hypertension has proved him right.
The study revealed that chiropractic adjustments to correct misalignment of the atlas vertebrae can actually lower blood pressure. "A misaligned spine can affect all body functions," said Dr. Masoud, chiropractor for more than 13 years. "It interferes with the body's nerve impulses and the signals to the brain, which can cause heightened blood pressure as well as many other ailments."
The double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved 50 patients with Stage 1 Hypertension, who were not taking medication for the condition. During an 8-week period, half the subjects underwent chiropractic care for restoration of atlas alignment using a National Upper Cervical Chiropractic (NUCCA) procedure. A control group received a placebo procedure. Compared to members of the placebo group, those undergoing chiropractic care enjoyed significant drops in both systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure, and no adverse effects were detected.
According to the Journal of Human Hypertension, restoration of atlas alignment is associated with marked and sustained reductions in blood pressure similar to the use of two-drug combination therapy.
