Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
High blood pressure or hypertension is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
One in 3 Americans over the age of 18 years suffers from hypertension. The prevalence is higher among older individuals, women and non-Hispanic blacks. The prevalence of hypertension increases progressively with age.
There are a number of physical therapy interventions that can be effective to facilitate lowering of blood pressure levels when initiated in concert with healthy lifestyle modifications. Hypertensive patients commonly struggle with weight control and joint pain that can make safe effective changes in activity levels more challenging without professional supervision.
Our program allow patients safe effective starting points for development of exercise and activity programs to reduce and control hypertension.
Stress and anxiety management can also play an important role for controlling hypertension. Our group can implement effective soft tissue mobilization and massage techniques to effectively reduce stress and hormonal related changes that can impact stress and anxiety levels.
