Can exercise relieve high blood pressure?

Exercise and High Blood Pressure

Exercise can help lower blood pressure. Systolic and diastolic pressure can be lowered using regular aerobic exercise. Improvements can be comparable to the results using medication.

Check with your doctor before starting any NEW exercise program, especially if you haven't been using ANY program or have diagnosed medical problems which could be influenced by activity.

Start slowly; select a low-impact aerobic program to begin with and work hard at staying with it.
