Did you know that Chiropractic medicine is extremely effective at treating issues related to digestion? Believe it or not, your digestive system is entirely linked to your nervous system, and your nervous system has complete control over various aspects of your digestive function. For example, the nerves in the thoracic and lumbar regions of your spine control the pace at which your body digests food. If any of the numerous nerves in your spine are functioning improperly, problems with digestion can easily arise.
When the spine is aligned improperly, stress and strain are put on the nerves, leaving them incapable of sending out the necessary signals to your digestive organs that trigger them to work properly. As a result, ailments such as chronic acid reflux, upset stomach and constipation develop. Until the interference in your nervous system is corrected, these conditions will continue to ail you.
A chiropractor can safely, gently and non-invasively correct subluxations in your spine through chiropractic manipulation. This involves the chiropractor using her hands to gently guide your vertebrae back into their proper places. This will take the strain off of your nervous system and allow it to function at its optimum level once more, thus, helping your digestive issues subside. After a few visits to a chiropractor, you may find that your symptoms are completely gone, and you are no longer relying on medications to function. Many people suffering from digestive problems have found almost immediate relief from their conditions after seeing a chiropractor for an adjustment.
