Chiropractic Treatment Can Help Cure Digestive Problems
Jan 22, 2018

Digestive problems can create a series of complications that affect how you feel and perform throughout the day. Luckily, there are plenty of viable treatment solutions that exist. At AICA Atlanta, our Chiropractors can help patients address digestive disorders without exposing them to potential adverse side effects.

Causes of Digestive Problems

Patients experience digestive disorders for a variety of reasons that range from dehydration to diet. Considering the types of disorders that exist, the most common ones that are treated by our Atlanta Chiropractors include:

  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Diverticulitis

Each of these disorders shares similar properties in that they all involve an irritated digestive system that causes excessive gas, fluctuating pain, and cramps.

Traditional Treatment

Most digestive problems are treated with conventional solutions that include over-the-counter and prescription medications, as well as surgery in extreme cases. Although medications are useful for treating symptoms, only a few are able to provide permanent results, and most contain adverse side effects.

How Chiropractic Treatment Helps Address Digestive Problems

At AICA Atlanta, our Chiropractors rely on a variety of techniques to treat digestive problems. The most effective solutions include regular adjustments, improvements in personal diet, and lifestyle changes. Spinal adjustments are useful for creating and maintaining a healthy nervous system which supports the body’s ability to function properly. They are also excellent for treating bloating or inflammation, as well as boosting immune response.

As patients receive adjustments, our Chiropractors also provide nutritional support that highlights what kinds of foods trigger symptoms and those that are easily processed by the body. We also show patients how they can adjust their habits to avoid future setbacks, such as by limiting their calorie intake or avoiding tobacco products.

Lastly, our Chiropractic team can also provide a number of stretches and exercises they can perform, which support the body’s ability to digest food easier. Not only do all of these recommendations help patients avoid digestive problems and their associated symptoms, but they also help improve their overall quality of health.
