Chiropractic care is probably best known for treating conditions like whiplash and back pain, but did you know that it has been found to successfully treat many common digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and colitis.
At least 20% of Americans suffer from digestive disorders. Their symptoms range from mild discomfort up to rectal bleeding. The most common approach is to alter the patient’s diet and remove foods that can trigger symptoms. Although that can bring some relief, it does not actually heal the digestive system. The source of these conditions is the neurological system and chiropractic care can help.
When your spine is out of alignment, your vertebrae can put pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that supply your digestive tract. By correcting your alignment through the use of chiropractic adjustments, we can remove these restrictions and your body can begin to heal itself because the nerves can once again communicate properly with their corresponding organs.
If you are experiencing the following symptoms more than occasionally, it’s time to visit Chiropractic Healing Center:
- Abdominal pain
- Blood in the stool
- Mouth sores
- Reduced appetite
- Unexplained weight loss
- Perianal disease
- Bloated feeling
- Mucus in stool
- Inability to defecate despite urgency
Restrictive diets may reduce your symptoms, but they will not heal your digestive tract. Chiropractic care focuses on ensuring that all body systems are functioning properly so that your body can heal itself. If you are ready to try the alternative, schedule an appointment with Dr. Cheree today.
