If you are one of the thousands of Americans suffering from digestive problems, our doctors at Exodus Chiropractic of Charlotte are certainly able to help you.
You may be thinking: what is the connection between my spine and stomach?
Every part of the body functions better because of chiropractic care, including the digestive system. The purpose of chiropractic care is to correct subluxations or misalignments of the spine to reduce pressure on the nerves.
Although a poor diet or lack of exercise can play a role in digestive health, the spine affects every part of the body – even the intestinal tract.
The thoracic area of the spine is the body’s control center for digestive function. Nerves connected to that area send impulses to the stomach and intestines. If your thoracic vertebrae are not properly aligned, you could be experiencing a number of digestive problems, such as excessive gas, bloating, or heartburn. Sometimes patients will have curvature in the thoracic area of their spine, which will cause persistent bloating and discomfort.
When the thoracic vertebrae shift back into alignment, the tension and toxins are released, and the muscles begin to relax. Once the pressure is gone, these symptoms disappear, alleviating discomfort and other digestive problems.
It is easy to get frustrated with digestive problems, especially when they interrupt your time with family or friends. Over-the-counter medicines will not correct these issues and only serve as a temporary cover-up. Chiropractic care is more effective at correcting digestive health and it can prevent problems from recurring in the future.
Consider a holistic approach towards improving your body’s natural digestion. A properly aligned spine can restore your digestive system to its fully functional state.
