NUCCA adjustments can significantly lower high blood pressure, a placebo-controlled study suggests.   Study leader Dr George Bakris is the director of the University of Chicago hypertension center. Bakris began the study after a fellow doctor told him that something strange was happening in his family practice. The doctor had been sending some of his patients to a chiropractor. Some of these patients had high blood pressure.  Yet after seeing the chiropractor, the patients' blood pressure had normalized -- and a few of them were able to stop taking their blood pressure medications.
