Chiropractic Care for GI Issues

Woman with stomach acheWhat is your gut telling you these days? If you have gastrointestinal issues that are making your daily life miserable, consider chiropractic care. As we take a whole body approach to health, we can help with the following GI issues:

  • Constipation
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

People with gut problems notice other physical symptoms such as sleep disruptions and eczema as skin is a reflection of the gut.

Healthy Gut, Healthy Immune System

Did you know that the overwhelming majority of your immune system resides in your gut? So if your gut isn’t healthy, you won’t have a healthy body. To have a healthier gut and body, you need to make sure your nervous system is balanced. Through specific adjustments, we can help keep your gut healthy so you can enjoy optimal health.

With chiropractic, we’re adjusting the top vertebra of your neck that’s affecting the vagus nerve. Known as the “wandering nerve” due to its many branches, it has a pathway to the gut. So while we might be adjusting your neck, we’re still affecting your gut through the vagus nerve.

There are so many nerves that are connected to the gut, so if everything is balanced in the gut, then you’re going to function better and heal faster.

Taking a Combined Approach

Addressing GI issues usually involves lower back adjustments as those nerves go to the intestines. Sometimes we combine the adjustment with a probiotic or a digestive enzyme if a patient isn’t able to break down their food properly and it’s just sitting in the gut.

If you have distressing GI issues that are interfering with your daily activities, contact Van Every Family Chiropractic Center today to book an appointment. We want to get your gut back on track and you on the path to better health!
