Treating Stomach Problems with Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is the first line of defense against stomach problems

The pain, discomfort, and lifestyle disruption of stomach problems are ubiquitous; most people have experienced the distress of diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps. These symptoms are associated with a wide variety of common disorders, ranging from mild indigestion to more troublesome conditions such as peptic ulcers, gastroenteritis, and stomach cancer.

Many stomach problems are caused by the stresses and fast pace of modern life. Of course, poor diet is another major culprit. Overuse of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can directly irritate the lining of the stomach and impair digestion. Alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs can also have this same effect.

The stomach is an organ between the esophagus and the small intestine. Protein digestion takes place in the stomach in a three part process: the storage of swallowed food; mixing the food with stomach acids; and ultimately sending this mixture to the small intestine. The functions of the stomach, as with all other functions of the body, rely on signals and messages from the brain in order to work properly. When this process is disrupted for any reason, stomach problems may develop.

Stomach Problems and the Spine: Chiropractic Care for Stomach Problems

The condition of the spine has a drastic effect on how well the brain communications with the body’s digestive system. The spine relies on a series of nerves to deliver instructions from the brain to the stomach, small intestines, and large intestines. Like any other nerves, if these encounter any type of interference (in the form of a misalignment, or subluxation), these commands will get lost along the way. This makes it impossible for the stomach to function at maximum capacity.

Stomach problems can be extremely disturbing to a normal, healthy lifestyle. It is important that these issues are addressed properly. The correction of nerve problems that cause the stomach or intestines to work improperly should be the chief strategy for dealing with stomach problems. Medication and other treatments that may incur unnecessary side effects should only be considered if the condition cannot be remedied by natural means.

Chiropractic treatment addresses common stomach problems and conditions and can prevent them from occurring in the first place. By ensuring proper spinal alignment, chiropractors remove the interference to the spinal nerves to help the stomach and every other muscle, organ, gland, and system in the body function normally.

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation: Holistic Care for Stomach Problems

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is prepared to treat stomach problems from a holistic perspective. That is, to address stomach problems by viewing the patient as a whole and by stressing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and nutrition, as well as the condition of the spine.

Our practitioners locate and eliminate the intrusions in the nervous system that can cause stomach problems (and other disorders). By fixing the misalignments in the spine that are at the root of these intrusions, the stomach can return to normal, healthy functioning. Medication is unnecessary with this treatment.

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation’s chiropractors use a variety of established techniques to treat spinal misalignment. The facility uses the most advanced and effective methods, including Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), an innovative, scientific approach in which the overall posture of the spinal column is targeted for correction.

Targeting overall posture helps to align the spine with gravity, thereby helping to correct the spine and promote nervous system health. This technique was designed to eradicate symptoms permanently. It also provides temporary relief while working to remove the cause of stomach problems.
