The Benefits Of Chiropractic For Digestive Issues

According to The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, more than 60 million Americans are affected by some type of digestive disease. From chronic constipation to irritable bowel syndrome, digestive issues are becoming more and more prevalent in our country. 

And while many may think the only solution is to turn to over-the-counter or prescription medication, these drugs are actually only addressing the symptoms… not the underlying cause. Luckily, many people have found that chiropractic care can help them!

Wondering how that is possible? 

Most people are not aware that the nervous system directly controls various aspects of the body’s digestive functions. And when it isn’t performing properly, it can lead to many different digestive problems (such as an upset stomach, constipation, acid reflux, etc.)

Chiropractors are specially trained to address spinal misalignments that could be leading to a strained nervous system. 

In our latest post, The Power Of Posture, we touched on the role that the spine plays in your body’s overall health. When misalignments occur, they can wreak havoc on the nervous system.  Being able to manipulate the spine back to its proper place helps the body function properly and therefore heal consistently. This healing process is especially important when it comes to your digestion, as it helps to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system… both of which play a major role in the digestive process.

At Summit Chiropractic Center, Dr. Tilyr and Dr. Kelly believe in a holistic approach to wellness and are there to help patients get their health back on track. They take the time to sit down with every new patient and understand their individual needs, in order to create a specialized care plan that works for them.
