Hypertension Treatment in Leawood

High Blood Pressure Treatment at Leawood Family Care

High blood pressure (or hypertension) is a common health concern as we age, although some people develop this condition at a younger age. Elevated blood pressure can cause damage to the body and to individual organs if not treated. Most of the time, hypertension develops due to genetic inheritance or lifestyle choices, but sometimes it’s caused by other less common conditions that can be evaluated by your physician. It is important to seek hypertension treatment in Leawood to prevent injury to the heart, brain, and blood vessels.
