Chiropractic Therapy for Digestion-How It Works
Your digestive system plays a huge role in how you feel and your overall well-being. This body system is responsible for converting the food you eat into nutrients that power and restore the body as well as being responsible for waste elimination. If your digestive system is disrupted from an illness or as the result of injuries sustained in an automobile or motorcycle accident, it can wreak havoc on your recovery.
Many people expect that an auto accident can cause broken bones and other skeletal injuries, but they don’t often realize that the impact of a crash can disrupt your digestion as well. Here at Impact Medical in Pompano Beach, our team is able to treat the obvious and not so obvious maladies that affect those who come to us after being injured.
Today, we are going to take a few moments to talk about digestion and how chiropractic care can help fully restore your digestive health. Let’s take a look.
Your body’s digestion is actually controlled via the nervous system. Therefore, if the nerves in the thoracic and lumbar region are disrupted from an event such as an accident, this can disturb the body’s ability to digest food correctly, resulting in issues such as constipation, acid reflux, and nausea.
Our brilliant Impact Medical Pompano Beach team finds chiropractic adjustments highly effective in treating digestion issues in our patients without them having to take prescribed medication each day. This saves money and is a holistic treatment alternative. When our chiropractors provide regular treatment of subluxations and misalignments of the spine, you will feel your best.
Chiropractic adjustments can relieve the pressure on nerves that cause constipation, freeing the body to eliminate waste regularly and effectively. These corrections can also take the pressure off nerves that control the sphincter between the stomach and the esophagus, resulting in less acid reflux, as food will move more slowly through the digestive system. This slowing also allows for optimum nutrient absorption in your body.
If you have been the victim of an automobile or motorcycle accident and are suffering from debilitating digestive issues or other injuries, don’t continue to struggle day after day. Give the caring and compassionate holistic healthcare team at Impact Medical in Pompano Beach a call today. We will meet with you to assess all your concerns and develop a multi-faceted treatment plan that will get you back on your feet in no time. Don’t delay…reach out to us now!
