PreliminaryStudy of Blood Pressure Changes in Normotensive Subjects Undergoing Chiropractic Care

Seventy-five people were tested after specific chiropractic cervical adjustments. Both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly in the adjusted group. No significant changes occurred in the control group. In those with the highest pre-treatment blood pressures, the treatment effect was greatest, indicating that the effective in hypertensives may be even more significant.
