The Management of Hypertensive Disease: A Review of Spinal Manipulation and the Efficacy of Conservative Therapeusis

This is a discussion of the literature relating high blood pressure to various factors, including stress and how that relates to the autonomic nervous system.

As the author writes (from the abstract): "Hypertension, therefore, may be regarded as a prime condition warranting specialized care that includes proper education during the formative years, modification of dietary habits in conjunction with daily exercise regiments, and regular spinal maintenance, all of which are covered by modern chiropractic clinical practice."
