Ross Hauser, MD and Brian Hutcheson, DC discuss the neurology behind cases of structural high blood pressure, and interview our awesome patient, Catherine, who we saw for this condition. As Catherine’s case demonstrates, this can happen in very fit people who have a healthy diet and lifestyle, yet have uncontrolled hypertension which can be puzzling to their doctors. By following the neurology of the symptoms, we see how upper cervical instability can impair proper vagus nerve input and restrict blood flow that is necessary for blood pressure regulation. Our approach to cases like hers is to work on cervical curve correction as well as cervical stabilization with upper cervical Prolotherapy.
