Often chiropractic care is associated with neck and back pain treatment. These issues can certainly benefit from chiropractic care, but did you know that individuals suffering from digestive issues can also benefit from visiting a chiropractor? Exceptional Wellness Center serving West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and the San Fernando Valley areas is now offering services that can greatly help with digestive issues.
What Types of Digestive Conditions Can Be Helped?
Your chiropractor can offer you treatment options for treating chronic digestive issues such as constipation, irregularity, and heartburn.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care takes a whole-body approach to an individual’s health. This includes treating all aspects of the nervous system. The nervous system is the system by which all of the body’s other systems receive and send messages. This includes the digestive system. When the spine is misaligned it can interfere with these messages being sent and received. When the messages from the digestive system are not being sent and received properly it can result in digestive conditions.
Spinal manipulation through chiropractic care can help strengthen the entire nervous system including the vagus nerve which runs all the way from the brain to the intestinal tract.
What Can I Expect During Care?
Your chiropractic care will begin with an evaluation of your overall health. This will help your doctor to isolate the root of the problem. Your doctor will then create a customized treatment plan for you to address these issues. Finding non-invasive, drug-free solutions to digestive issues is crucial to your health. The body must be able to eliminate waste efficiently so that your body can rid itself of toxins.
Your doctor will also discuss other ways you can improve your digestive health through lifestyle and nutritional changes. In some cases, digestive issues can also be a result of underlying stress. Your chiropractor can also discuss ways to shed stress so that your body can operate at its best.
Ignoring Digestive Issues
Over time digestive issues can create other long term health problems. Among these can be toxicity in the body, and in extreme cases, a person can become septic. This means that the entire body has become infected because of the waste which can not be eliminated.
When regular bowel movements can’t happen, the body can become a toxic environment. This toxic environment can contribute to a host of other medical conditions. A healthy digestive system will improve your over health, wellness, and energy level.
