Chiropractic for Constipation in Royal Oak

If you’re suffering from constipation, Van Every Family Chiropractic Center offers a simple solution to help you find relief. You might be surprised to learn that the muscles in your intestine, which are responsible for pushing stools to your anus, have a connection to your spine. How?

The Link Between Your Back and Bowels

Specialized nerve cells in your intestine, called ganglion cells, are responsible for the pushing of the muscles. These nerves connect to the celiac ganglion, which assists the operation of your stomach, liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidney, small intestine, and ascending and traverse colon.

In turn, the celiac ganglion connects the spinal cord and brain to the lower thoracic and upper lumbar regions of your back. If there is pressure on these nerve roots due to a misalignment of your spine, you may experience a dysfunction such as constipation.

Offering Solutions for All Ages

Don’t take our word for it – check out what these moms say about how chiropractic care has helped their children.
My daughter started having problems with constipation before she was eating solids and once they could be introduced, we were told by our pediatrician to give her prunes but to avoid a lot of the common baby foods because they would only make it worse. As time went on, her problem didn’t get any better, and we were advised to give her watered down prune juice, which did not work. We decided to change pediatricians and see if there were any better suggestions and that only led us to being told to give her MiraLAX® daily.

I knew that this could not be the best solution and it was only masking the problem. I began seeing a chiropractor before she was born and was adjusted throughout my pregnancy. I started seeing Dr. Saylor, and after talking to her about my daughter’s stomach issues, she suggested that I bring her in. I figured what did we have to lose and it wasn’t going to hurt her any. My only regret was not bringing her in sooner!! From the first adjustment on, my child who would scream and cry anytime she had to go to the bathroom was no longer in pain. My daughter will be 7 soon, and since she started seeing Dr. Saylor, she no longer struggles with her stomach issues. She tells me now when she thinks it’s time to go in for an adjustment and when we go together, she always insists on going first. She loves going to Van Every Family Chiropractic Center, and I as a parent love taking her there!

Thank you, Van Every Family Chiropractic Center! My daughter Cameron is 7 years old and has always had issues with constipation and having normal bowel movements. She can go days without having to go and when she does she has a very hard time and her bowel looks like hard pebbles. I took Cameron to see Dr. Anna Saylor at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center for a consultation and adjustment. Within an hour of arriving home after her adjustment, Cameron headed to the bathroom in her usual fashion (Kindle in hand).

Instead of Cameron taking 30 minutes in the bathroom, within five minutes she came running out of the bathroom saying, “Mom come on you have to see this! I just had the biggest and longest poop I’ve ever had! Its filling the whole toilet!” All I have to say is the adjustments they make at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center work, my plumber and Cameron can verify! Thank You Van Every Family Chiropractic Center and Dr. Anna Saylor.
