How Chiropractic Can Help
Chiropractic does not treat digestive issues. However, since the digestive process is under direct control of the nervous system and chiropractic care works with the nervous system, digestive issues can resolve with chiropractic care. Acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and Crohn’s Disease can be helped with chiropractic care.
In our office we see digestive issues primarily present themselves in three ways. The first presents as a diet and environmental exposure induced issue. The second is a neural (nerve disturbance/subluxation) induced issue. And the third and most common is a combination of diet, environment, and neural factors. It can be difficult to determine which is affecting you or your loved one, but we have experience in getting to the root of this issue.
The first thing we do in our office is determine if there is nerve disturbance causing or contributing to your digestive issues. We are able to do this through a thorough history discussion and a state of the art non-invasive nervous system evaluation.
The reason our approach is so successful when compared to other common approaches to dealing with digestive issues is that we are focused on addressing the cause of the digestive issue. Other common treatments focus on addressing the effect (symptom) or only focus on the diet and environment while completely neglecting the nerve component. If both diet and nerve disturbance are the cause and they are not addressed the results will be mixed at best.
Following the history and evaluation, if we can find out we can help, we will present a care plan to correct the problem. If diet and environmental factors appear to be at the source of this issue, we can connect you with a local professional experienced at addressing those issues. We invite you to take advantage of our complimentary consultation to find out if chiropractic care can help.Indigestion and Heartburn: A Descriptive Study of Prevalence in Persons Seeking Care from Chiropractors.

Some people choose to continue with chiropractic care as a lifestyle choice much in the way that they continue to exercise, eat healthy, and brush their teeth. They know that the health of their body as a whole is tied to the health of their spine and nervous system and choose to maintain it.
Many conditions result from a poorly functioning nervous system. If this is the cause of your problem, then only chiropractic can address the root cause and allow your body to heal is it should. Below are some conditions that have been traced back to subluxations.
Stay Chiropractic Healthy
Chiropractic enables the weight bearing abilities of the spine and skeletal structure to be optimized. This is critical whether you are lifting a bag of groceries, a toddler, or a heavy barbell.

Having your spine in a balanced and neutral position allows your body to hold itself upright with greater ease and with less resistance against gravity. This enables your muscular system to be more relaxed throughout the day. Coupled with more complete, fluid movement and efficient weight bearing, your body as a whole will enjoy a new level of efficiency.
By removing interfering factors in the nervous system, it is able to heal your body more efficiently and effectively from a cellular level.
Your body is constantly adapting to internal and external environmental factors. Your nervous system controls this adaptation. By improving nervous system function, adaptability also improves which keeps your body in a healthier state no matter what it encounters.
