Digestive disorders are among the most common health concerns that most people will have experienced at one point or another. These disorders affect the gastrointestinal (GI) tract that consists of the esophagus, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestines. Experiencing minor digestive upset due to food intolerance or food allergies is usually not a matter of concern. However, if you experience digestive problems more frequently or severely, then don’t delay seeking professional treatment.
Upper cervical chiropractic of Georgia provides a safe and effective treatment to give you relief from all types of digestive issues.
We are living in a fast-paced world where unhealthy eating has become a commonality. Healthy foods and home-cooked meals have taken a back seat and it’s easier to munch on ready-to-eat meals or fast foods that are too convenient. The results are, obviously, not favorable to your health. Your digestive system is responsible for breaking down food into nutrients and vitamins, which your body utilizes for energy production, cell repair, and overall growth and development.
When your digestive system goes out of balance due to bad food choices, an inactive lifestyle, or an underlying health condition, it may cause digestive disorders with symptoms that are extremely uncomfortable or painful. The common digestive conditions with associated symptoms are:
These digestive issues are associated with the irritation of the small intestine, large intestine, or lining of the stomach. Sometimes, the symptoms become so severe or intense that they start interfering with your daily routine. Moreover, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, GERD, and diverticulitis are a few digestive disorders that cause weight gain as well, apart from the above-mentioned debilitating symptoms. Hence, keeping your stomach trouble-free is the key if you are on a weight loss journey or just want to maintain healthy body weight. Having a healthy digestive system is essential to overall health and well-being.
While the causes of digestive troubles are multi-faceted, many studies show that imbalances in the nervous system may be a prominent risk factor. This forms the basis of our new treatment for digestive disorders that is not only effective but all-natural and safe as well.
Yes, most types of digestive issues can effectively be treated with upper cervical chiropractic care. It is a specialized treatment approach that uses gentle alignment and manipulation techniques to correct the misalignment at the top of the spine and allow the nervous system to communicate effectively with the rest of the body. This may naturally reduce the symptoms caused by digestive disorders.
The science behind it goes like this – your nervous system is the command centre of your body. It is what lets you do everything – from breathing to walking and working to basically performing everything. But if something is interfering with your nervous system and impairing its ability to communicate with the rest of the body, then the whole bodily functions start to decline, and you start experiencing digestive symptoms as a result.
One possible reason for interference is the misalignment of the upper cervical spine or the two tiny bones in the upper neck (Atlas and Axis), which distorts the proper functioning of the brain stem. This misalignment, also referred to as a subluxation, can result in serious health issues, including digestive distress. Spine misalignment also obstructs GI hormones that regulate gut mucosal growth and support digestive functions. Many people resort to over-the-counter medicines or prescription drugs to find relief, which may have potential side effects or even exacerbate digestive issues.
Upper cervical chiropractic care provides a safe alternative approach to treating different gastrointestinal issues, including those digestive disorders that cause weight gain. Rather than treating the symptoms, it treats the problem at its source, which involves correcting an upper neck misalignment. When your gastrointestinal tract receives 100% impulses from your brain, you begin to see a great improvement in your digestive health.
In order to achieve the desired results, the adjustment and manipulation need to be done very carefully based on the patient’s unique anatomy and presenting health condition.
The very first step involves a consultation and physical assessment, which involves a review of your medical history and an X-ray scan of your upper neck region. If any misalignments are found, our Doctors will thoroughly explain how they are affecting your digestive health.
For treatment you will then be asked to lie in a particular position on an adjustment table that raises and drops. The correction involves using state-of-the-art instruments or hands-on approach to manipulate the bones in your upper cervical region to remove any interference that may be leading to dysfunctional nervous system signaling.
On follow-up examinations, X-ray imaging of your spine is taken again to determine if the adjustment is holding in place, and how often you may need further adjustments. Each session will allow your body to become more and more receptive to brain messages, and your digestive system will start to work normally again.
Taking an over-the-counter or prescription drug isn’t going to fix your digestive problem. They may provide temporary relief, but could potentially cause serious side-effects down the road. Don’t limit your treatment options to temporary fixes when you can find permanent relief.
