What causes high blood pressure?

The simplest way to explain hypertension, also commonly referred to as high blood pressure, is that it's what happens when the force of blood against your artery walls is too great. This pressure comes from your heart pumping blood through your circulatory system, and is related to how elastic your blood vessels are and the inner size of your blood vessels.

If you have questions or think you may be at risk for high blood pressure, schedule an appointment with your online doctor.
