How Does Chiropractic Address Digestive Health?
Every system in our body, including our digestive system, partner with our nerves to carry out vital functions. Our digestive system works with a couple of different organs to break down food, absorb nutrients, and eliminate what it doesn’t need, and, we can’t do this without our nerves.
If the nerves are impinged or impacted at all, the crucial signals from our brain to our bodies are disrupted and this directly impacts our digestion, leading to digestive issues.
While a chiropractor may not be the first medical professional you may think of to address this concern, we’re certainly qualified and provide digestive care that has been proven successful time and time again!
Get Curious About Western Medicine
Typically, if you go and see a western doctor to treat your digestive issues, they’ll prescribe pharmaceuticals. You may find relief, but what research has found is that, not only do the drugs mask the symptoms, they can also make your health issues worse.
This is the time to really get curious about western medicine and the role it plays. Do your own research and empower yourself in your wellness journey.
When Pain Is A Good Thing
Sure, no one likes pain, but pain is a signal — it let’s us know that something is wrong. So, if you have pain in your bowel movement, constipation, or diarrhea, your body is trying to tell you something.
Chiropractic Care For Digestive Wellness
If you’re experiencing digestive upset there is a good chance there are nerves impacting it, and this is where chiropractors come in! Let’s explore what we can do to better promote optimal gut health.
Chiropractors get to the root of the issue.
Instead of masking symptoms or putting a band-aid on your discomfort, chiropractors have the ability to examine your spine and locate any pinched nerves that may be involved in your digestion, not only can they manually adjust this, but they can look in your lifestyle habits and recommend nutrition and movement adjustments.
Improve Vertebral Subluxations
When our vertebrae are out of place, even slightly, it can impede on the way our systems work. Keep everything aligned and working optimally with consistent chiropractic adjustments.
If you’re like many and suffer from digestive issues, chiropractic care is perfect because it doesn’t try and mask the symptoms, but instead, chiropractors can manipulate the nerves and vertebrae to support a healthy functioning digestive system.
