Blood Pressure Study Makes Headlines!

Recent results of a Chicago-area study of 50 people with a misaligned atlas vertebra and high blood pressure showed that after a one-time specialized chiropractic adjustment using the NUCCA technique, blood pressure decreased significantly. The study's lead author is George Bakris, M.D., director of the hypertension center at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Patients in the study were referred for assessment and participation to Chicago NUCCA practitioner Marshall Dickholtz Sr, D.C., founding member of the Upper Cervical Research Foundation Board of Directors.
