Reduce blood pressure through chiropractic adjustment

Learn how to reduce your blood pressure through chiropractic adjustment in a free, two-part workshop based on a Rush University Hypertension Center study and sponsored by Dr. Philip Schalow.

In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study, a chiropractor using the NUCCA procedure showed not only that the atlas, the first bone in the neck, could be corrected when misaligned, but that this correction balances postural distortions and brings down high blood pressure. NUCCA is a chiropractic specialty that focuses on gentle manual correction of the atlas.

Dr. George Bakris, chief of Rush University Hypertension Center, concluded that the NUCCA adjustment can reduce blood pressure in patients with Type 1 hypertension. Learn more published details of the study in a two-part workshop led by Dr. Philip Schalow, Rockford’s only NUCCA practitioner, at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 15, at the central branch of the Rockford Public Library, and at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 22, at the Northeast branch, on Alpine Road. For more information, call Dr. Schalow at (815) 398-4500.
