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.
