Blood pressure changes, and we want it to. Unfortunately, for some people, their blood pressure is at a level that can be detrimental to their future health. Our heart is a pump and works constantly, however with higher blood pressure, your heart has to work harder which can change the shape and thickness of your heart. When this happens, your heart becomes less effective at its job and can lead to further complications that are far more difficult and invasive to help. As such, catch it early so you can live a longer and happier life.

How do we help treat Hypertension?

An exercise physiologist plays a major role in hypertension treatment. Regular, suitable exercise can help lower blood pressure, reduce weight, and improve heart health. We incorporate aerobic exercises like walking, swimming, or cycling, along with strength training, to ensure all-around fitness. When performed correctly and with safety in mind, exercise provides a short term reduction in blood pressure. Over time, with consistent exercise, blood pressure can be lowered for longer. The exact mechanism is still not yet known, but is a combination of many hormonal and neuronal changes that occur due to the health improving nature of cardiovascular exercise.
