As a nation, we spend well over 80 billion a year on drugs to combat the likes of heartburn, bloating gas, acid reflux, constipation and diarrhea. It seems as though these digestive disorders are becoming increasingly prevalent in our daily lives. Research has shown that corrective care chiropractic treatments offer a powerful solution to this modern day epidemic.

Our nervous system controls several different regions of digestive function. Spinal misalignment in any of these particular regions can be cause for an altered digestive function. Specific chiropractic adjustment realigns the regions, restoring nerve supply to the affected organs. In this approach, we honor the body’s innate ability to heal itself as well as work in harmony with your body to enhance organ function and increase quality of life.

For many, common stomach ailments are met with a dose or 6 of over the counter remedies like Rolaids or Tums. But this is a treatment that doesn’t resolve the root of the problem. Chiropractic treatments address common stomach problems and conditions and prevent them from happening in the first place. This is done by removing the interference to the spinal nerve, helping all your organs to function normally.

There is mounting evidence of a distinct link between spinal problems and chronic diseases like Crohn’s and IBS. There are many theories as to what causes Crohn’s Disease, but none of them have actually been proved. Treatment for this disease includes corticosteroids to control inflammation, but these can cause some pretty serious side effects. Chiropractic treatments could offer a way to treat this condition without the negative side effects.

Next time you suffer from heartburn, instead of reaching for the Tums, reach for the phone and give your New Port Richey chiropractor a call.
