Digestive Disorders and Symptoms

If you have ever experienced any severe stomach pain, then you would know that gastrointestinal issues is a serious thing that can hinder your everyday life by depleting your energy and nutrients.

  • bloating

  • gas

  • general abdominal pain

In addition to those common digestive issues, there are a variety of digestive system disorders like:

Lactose intolerance

Do you get stomach pain a lot when you consume dairy products?

Well you might be lactose intolerant meaning that your body is unable to digest the sugar (lactose) in dairy products. It’s not a particularly harmful disorder but it can cause a lot of discomfort including bloating, gas and diarrhea.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease

This is another common gastrointestinal disorder which causes your stomach acid, food and fluid to go back up your esophagus. This can happen due to frequent acid reflux in your body.

Ulcerative colitis

This is a long-term condition is when inflammation happens in your colon and rectum.

The colon is the large intestine and it can develop ulcers on the lining of your colon causing it to bleed and produce pus in turn.

Irritable bowel syndrome

Having digestive problems like diarrhea, constipation, bloating and stomach cramps is an indication that you have IBS.

This condition can come and go, lasting for days, weeks or even months at a time. This can very well be a life-long disorder.

Crohn's disease

This is an inflammatory bowel disease that is more serious than general constipation or gas.

It causes inflammation in your digestive tract that causes fatigue, severe diarrhea, stomach pain, weight loss and malnutrition.

Any digestive problem can have a negative impact on your life affecting your ability to carry out your daily tasks, hindering your quality of life.

So the question begs, what can chiropractic adjustments do for someone who has digestive system issues?

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Digestive Issues

When you think of spinal manipulation, you probably associate it with relief for neck pain and other body pains. You most likely don’t think chiropractic treatments can help your digestive issues.

However, you should note that all the nerves in your body are connected to your spinal cord. This means your spine communicates with all the systems in your body including your respiratory, reproductive, and even digestive system.

So if you’re experiencing digestive issues, it can occasionally be directly related to your spinal vertebrae being improperly aligned.

When your spine is not properly aligned, your nerves are put under stress and could result in a pinched nerve. This prevents your nervous system from functioning properly and thus, be unable to send signals to your whole body, including your digestive system.

In particular, the thoracic and lumbar areas’ nerves can affect your digestive health. So even a slight misalignment in the thoracic and lumbar regions can directly affect your gastrointestinal conditions!
