Got Digestive Issues? See a Chiropractor?
Absolutely! Chiropractic care is about more than back, neck and joints. It can address a number of issues that are causing you chronic and/or acute pain throughout your body, including digestive problems such as:
Who suffers from these conditions?
Anyone can suffer from these conditions, but in the past, they more often have attacked men in their middle age years. But recently these diseases are attacking people of all ages, races and genders, they are not being as selective as in years past. You have to wonder why the change? Could it be the change that has occurred in our society, less activity and poor diets? Our lifestyles have become more sedentary, perhaps causing our digestive systems to become more sedentary also.
Most often, people will take over-the-counter antacids to relieve their symptoms, but for a chronic sufferer, the relief is temporary, because it doesn’t address the root problem.
How and why can Chiropractic treatment help?
Your digestive issues could be a signal that your thoracic vertebrae (nerves in the stomach and intestinal regions which control digestion) are out of alignment. When this occurs, the nerves can become irritated and inflamed, lose control of digestion, begin sending erratic impulses to your stomach and intestines and digestive problems begin.
Your Chiropractor will want to isolate the source of your problem by doing a consultation and exam to find our where the vertebrae are out of alignment. Then through gentle manipulation, he/she will guide your vertebrae back into position, relieving the stress and tension that has built up in your nervous system, which will allow your body to heal. This process might take a few visits to your chiropractor, after which you should find your symptoms lessening or even totally gone. There are no invasive procedures or medications involved. **
