Is a Neck Injury affecting your Blood Pressure?

Here at Vital Head & Spinal Care, we focus on the craniocervical junction, where your head meets your neck. It's the most vulnerable part of your spine when faced with any type of fall or trauma. 

It's also one of the most critical areas of your body - as it serves as the tunnel for information to pass through, from your brain to the rest of your body.  Your brain controls 5 Major Functions: 

  • Your MOVEMENT of your muscles and joints
  • Your SENSATION of pleasure, pain, position, and temperature
  • Your 5 SENSES that relate you to the rest of the outside world
  • Your THOUGHTS and EMOTIONS
  • Your ORGANS through the “fight or flight” and “rest and recovery” systems

As shown in the video above, NUCCA Care may decrease blood pressure significantly - as much as taking 2 blood pressure medications!

So how do you know if your neck is playing a role in your hypertension? 

  1. Have you had an injury to your head or neck (concussion, car accident, etc)? 
  2. Do you have other areas of pain in your body, that have become part of your normal life (whether it is headaches, or sciatica)? 
  3. Is your hypertension unexplained? Do you already live an active lifestyle with a healthy diet, but your blood pressure is still higher than your doctor would expect?

If any one of these questions are a yes, your hypertension may be a result of a signaling problem from your nervous system.  Call our office to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors, who can let you know if they believe NUCCA care would play a major role in your health journey!
