High Blood Pressure and Exercise

Heart Week 2017 - 30 Apr to 6 May This year Heart Week is 30 April to 6 May, and the focus is about the importance of diagnosing and treating high blood pressure. We want to encourage you and your friends / family / work colleague to talk to your local health and fitness professionals about blood pressure testing, what the results mean and what the next steps are in managing the results if they are high. The National Heart Foundation of Australia has released new hypertension guidelines that will give you the most up-to-date advice on the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure. You won’t know you have high blood pressure until you have it checked. There are no signs and symptoms. The good news is that high blood pressure, or hypertension, can be controlled. High blood pressure, or hypertension, remains the leading risk factor for heart disease. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to a heart attack, stroke or kidney disease. Speak to your doctor or come into our clinic and speak with our Exercise Physiologist today about checking your blood pressure and keeping it heart-healthy. Why is my blood pressure measure important? Blood pressure is the pressure of blood on the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body. It naturally goes up and down all the time adjusting to the heart’s needs and what you’re doing. Your health professional takes your blood pressure to check it is at a normal healthy level. A blood pressure reading between 120/80mmHg to 139/89mmHg is in the normal to high normal range. If your readings are higher, you may be diagnosed with high blood pressure, or hypertension. This condition [...]
