Your overall health is more or less directly linked to a properly functioning digestive system. That is, it is no fun suffering from such digestive issues as chronic heartburn, acid reflex, irregular bowel movements or bloating. These digestive disorders might just seem to be a passing phase, often treated with an over-the-counter medication. But these medications merely mask the underlying problem, and only offer temporary relief. If you are suffering from any type of digestive issues, calling a chiropractor is probably not at the top of your list. But chronic digestive problems, like irritable bowel syndrome, have strong neurological components. And because of this, a spinal misalignment can create chronic digestive issues. Here are a few reasons you should consider addressing your digestive problems with your New Port Richey, Florida Chiropractor.
Factors such as overexertion, stress and injury can cause subluxations, in turn causing muscle tension as well as the disturbance of spinal nerves. A misalignment in a specific region of the spine may very well negatively affect the stomach and the upper digestive system. Your nervous system plays a critical role in digestion, and when your spine is not properly aligned you could suffer the negative conditions associated with your digestive system.
Chiropractic care alleviates your digestive issues without medications. Through a series of back and neck adjustments, we can restore proper alignment, thus removing pressure from the affected nerves. In turn, you will experience the return of normal digestion and no longer suffer the ill-effects.
