Across the nation, digestion issues are on the rise. Poor digestion leads to pain and uncomfortable symptoms that could be caused by a lack of exercise or a poor diet. Sometimes other health issues or medications can lead to digestive issues as well. No matter the cause, it is clear that something must be done to aid in proper digestion. Both men and women alike are seeking an answer to improve digestive health when other methods simply don’t work. Even children haven’t escaped from digestive issues. In fact, many children suffer from constipation from a young age. Fortunately, chiropractic care has been shown to be a natural and effective way to aid in digestion. In the instance of an 8-year-old boy who had experienced constipation since birth, chiropractic adjustments helped. After two months of chiropractic adjustments along with a diet change, proper digestion was restored and he no longer suffered from constipation.
Digestion Issues That Require Chiropractic Care
Digestive problems that lead to irritation of the small and large intestines, such as Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, can cause flare-ups that are uncomfortable. Slow digestion, chronic inflammation, or food allergies can also be painful and affect day to day life. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, is a digestion issue involving the esophagus and stomach. Instead of acid in the stomach working to break down food, those with GERD experience a backflow of acid from the stomach that causes intense heartburn, coughing, problems swallowing, or regurgitation. No matter what digestive issue you are facing, they don’t have to continue. Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar can help.
Chiropractic Can Reduce Symptoms of Poor Digestion
The central nervous system, composed of the brain and spinal cord, control all of the body’s systems, including the digestion system. Subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, will interrupt communication between the nerves and the rest of the body, causing health issues such as poor digestion or other digestive health concerns. Dr. Ronnie Bolar is a Lithia Springs chiropractic who will gently adjust the spine, removing these misalignments to restore communications and ensure all systems are functioning properly. Reports of chiropractic helping others change their lives for the better are common, particularly when it comes to digestive health. For example, a six-year-old girl was brought to a chiropractor after having neck pain and chronic constipation. After just 13 visits to the chiropractor, gastrointestinal pain, neck pain, and constipation issues were completely resolved.
Don’t Wait Any Longer to Experience Relief from Digestive Issues
Knowing that chiropractic care from a Lithia Springs chiropractor will help in improving digestions means that you shouldn’t continue to wait and see if your symptoms will improve on their own. Those with more serious digestive problems shouldn’t have to live their lives around their digestive health. In a case study of 17 people with Crohn’s Disease combined with allergies, 12 had stable remission of Crohn’s Disease as well as relief from allergy symptoms after being under chiropractic care. It’s time to take control of your health with chiropractic care. Contact Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar at Vital Life Chiropractic to schedule a visit today.
