Chiropractic Helps Lower Blood Pressure
A placebo controlled study suggests that a special chiropractic adjustment can significantly lower high blood pressure.
Eight weeks after undergoing the procedure, 25 patients with early-stage high blood pressure had significantly lower blood pressure compared to 25 similar patients who underwent a sham chiropractic adjustment.
Study leader George Bakris, MD, remarks that "this procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination." No side effects were reported throughout the study.
X-rays showed that the procedure realigned the Atlas vertebra, the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine, with the spine in the treated patients, but not the sham-treated patients. Those treated with the real chiropractic adjustment saw an average 14mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure, and an average of 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure. None of the patients took blood pressure medicine during the eight-week study.
The procedure calls for adjustment of the C-1 vertebra also referred to as the Atlas vertebra. Marshall Dickholtz Sr., DC of the Chiropractic Health Center in Chicago is the chiropractor who performed all the procedures in the study. He calls the Atlas vertebra "the fuse box to the body." He explains that, "at the base of the brain are two centers that control all the muscles of the body. If the Atlas gets locked in a position as little as a half millimeter out of line, it doesn't cause any pain but it upsets these centers."

Thermography Scans Now Available
Thermography is a radiation-free health screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body.
Most pathological processes demonstrate increased heat, and some show excessive cold, or hypothermia. Breast disease can be detected by looking for areas of excess heat indicative of increased blood vessels supplied to a growing tumor.
All reports are reviewed and signed by senior interpreter, Alexander Sepper, MD, Ph.D., who has practiced over 30 years as a Gynecologist and has performed 100’s of thousands of thermal studies for women with ovarian and breast cancer.
Thermography technician, Ashley Ageloff, will be performing Thermography scans at Jupiter Family Chiropractic one day per month. The next available date for Thermography screening is Wednesday, February 25th.
Appointments can be made at the front desk or by calling our office at 561.277.9087. Spots are limited.
Relief After a Head Injury
"I came to Jupiter Family Chiropractic when I was suffering from a head injury that caused sinusitis, constant nausea, dizziness, and headaches for four months. My condition made it difficult for me to carry out my daily responsibilities. I depended on other people to drive me to work and by the time I would return home, I spent my evening going to bed early due to exhaustion and pain. My general practitioner and specialist were unable to explain and give me proper treatment for my sudden symptoms. Even other chiropractors that I interviewed were unable to show me exactly what was wrong with me like Dr. Helia has. I was able to meet with Dr. Helia prior to treatment and she was able to explain to me exactly where my neck was injured, the type of treatment I needed and I trusted her to start treatment. I have been coming to Jupiter Family Chiropractic for about a month and already my symptoms are going away. I feel like I am getting my life back on track after five months of living with uncertainty."
