Reduce Digestive Problems With Chiropractic
The summer swimsuit season is upon us! As summer approaches, it ushers in good times, family vacations, and backyard get togethers with both friends and family. Good family/friend time usually goes hand in hand with a special quality and quantity of food. From barbecue and burgers to your favorite frosty beverage, food plays a significant role in the summer holiday celebrations. An important method to reduce digestive problems begins with Chiropractic care.
Chiropractic spinal adjustments improve digestive function by reducing interference from the central nervous system. Science and research proves the connection between the spine and digestive problems. When spinal bones move appropriately and in proper alignment, a balance occurs in the central nervous system that normalizes digestion. Digestion often slows or becomes imbalanced when a spinal vertebra changes position or suffers from a lack of movement.
The vertebral shifting, called a subluxation, produces stress in the nervous system that decreases blood flow to vital digestive organs, and reduces normal bowel motility. This process leads to a build-up of undigested food and bloating that contribute to weight gain. Digestive imbalances always produce a negative long-term impact on overall health. The holidays tend to make people especially susceptible to indulgences and bowel discomfort that harm a healthy body composition.
Research from a 2009 medical journal showed that 71% of patients with digestive problems who received spinal adjustments experienced an improvement in their symptoms. 45% of the patients suffering with digestive problems also reduced or eliminated their digestion medication. People often wonder how Chiropractic enters the health picture when suffering from symptoms that appear distant from the function of the spine. Chiropractic adjustments focus on eliminating interference from the nervous system by improving alignment and movement in the spine and vertebra. All organs communicate through the spinal column and nervous system. A healthy spine translates into healthier organs and systems within the body.
Chiropractors apply gentle adjustments directly to the spine but the impact translates into health benefits that radiate throughout the entire body. Computers and phones possess a wealth of functional capabilities that extend far beyond simply utilizing the camera or calculator features. Chiropractic care provides a similar scope of capability that does so much more than simply relieving back and neck pain. Chiropractic care ensures that children and adults of all ages ranging from infancy to advanced years achieve results for conditions and symptoms seemingly unrelated to spinal health. The spine houses anatomy, physiology, and neurology that directly benefit improved communication and function that only happen when the spine moves and functions optimally.
Everyone benefits from a spine and nervous system cared for by a highly skilled Chiropractor. Spinal subluxations operate like cavities and high blood pressure. They form and escalate without any pain or symptoms until they ultimately compromise the body’s health and function. Infants, children, and adults experience proactive improvement to all body function, including digestive problems, by improving spinal health. The summer season invites many welcome indulgences. Let Chiropractic care be an indulgence that continues to provide health benefits long after the festivities come to a close.
