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.
