As we have discussed in previous blogs, the nervous system is what regulates all of the other systems in your body. In regards to the digestive system, your nervous system plays a master role in the digestion of your food. Misalignments in the spine can cause the nerves to no longer perform their job. The causes for the nerve to be irritated are various such as a swollen disc or a misaligned vertebrae. When the spine is undergoing misalignment stress, it can cause the body to undergo acid reflux, uneasy stomach, and constipation/diarrhea. Just like any other health issue, if the problem is not resolved, the body will continue to undergo symptoms and discomfort.
Chiropractic can assist in healing the root cause of these issues: nerves in the spine. Spine adjustments can release the stress on nerves by helping align the spine to its original position. Chiropractic is a safer treatment than medication for these digestive issues. Drugs are generally designed to either speed up, slow down, or block a natural process in your body from occurring, thus creating adverse side effects.

Chiropractic and Mental Health
It is known that Chiropractic helps the nervous system as well as the entire body, but how does it affect the brain? Many people suffer from mental illnesses like depression, stress, and anxiety. At Lowcountry Chiropractic, we strive toward a body that achieves overall wellness including the brain. Here are a few ways Chiropractic can help assist a life with mental illness.
Mental illnesses are a wide range of characteristics and symptoms caused by chemical imbalances in the brain.
Within the field of Chiropractic, there are many different ways to go about aligning the spine. It has been studied that if an Orthospinology technique is used to focus on the upper cervical vertebrae of the spine, the patient may have relief of their depression as well as side effects of said depression.
ADHD in children
While it is not an attempt to change a child’s personality, a study has shown that Chiropractic can be beneficial in assisting children with ADHD symptoms. This includes attention span, impulse control, and hyperactivity. Adjusting the spine and aligning it properly relieves pressure on nerves and can serve as a relaxing treatment.
Every person has experienced stress at some point in their life. Stress can cause the body a multitude of problems ranging from misalignment to muscle tension. Chiropractic can assist in the relaxation of muscles and nervous system by centering the body. This ultimately results in a body rid of stress for the time being. Many factors cause stress, but having a care plan for your body can relieve it.
Falling under a category similar to stress, anxiety can cause the body to become unregulated. While most anxiety is felt in the stomach or chest, it can also cause the entire body discomfort. With Chiropractic, keeping the body on a regular schedule of alignment can assist the body in healing after anxiety attacks or episodes.
Keeping your body well overall can be difficult and time consuming. However, with Lowcountry Chiropractic’s help, we can get you on a wellness care plan that can assist you and your body in becoming a healthy version of yourself. Your body and your brain will thank you!
