More and more people across the nation are experiencing problems with digestion. It could be attributed to leading a more sedentary lifestyle or increasingly poor eating habits. But whatever the cause, poor digestive health has become a significant problem today that can affect daily life. What can be done to ease digestive problems? It might surprise you to know that chiropractic care could play a significant role in improving digestion.
The Importance of Proper Digestion
Digestion refers to the way food moves through our body. Our digestive process is responsible for keeping the nutrients and vitamins in our body and removing all harmful toxins. If the body isn’t digesting food properly, it can cause feelings of tiredness or sluggishness. In other words, you simply won’t feel like yourself. Certain health concerns can be the cause of poor digestion. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticulitis, or Crohn's Disease all cause improper digestion that can be painful and annoying. Symptoms of pain, gas, bloating, or a change in bowel movements can get in the way of how you live our life. Proper digestion is important for living a healthy lifestyle. For those suffering from digestive discomfort, there is a solution. Chiropractic care from a Bentonville chiropractor can alleviate digestive problems so you can feel like yourself once again.
How Can Chiropractic Promote Proper Digestion?
The digestive system is intricately connected to the central nervous system, composed of the brain and spinal cord. A spinal misalignment, when a vertebra is twisted, turned, or out of place, will disrupt nerve communication between the central nervous system and other parts of the body. A spinal misalignment could be the cause of poor digestion. Dr. Tom Niemela of Arbor Vitae Chiropractic will examine the spine for misalignments and then perform a gentle adjustment to remove them. Once the spine is aligned, proper nerve communication can be restored, ensuring that your body is able to function at high levels of health again. Many people have experienced relief almost immediately or shortly after receiving chiropractic adjustments. For example, a six-year-old girl suffered from neck pain and chronic constipation issues. After 13 visits to a chiropractor, her issues were resolved completely. Chiropractic care from Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela may be the answer you have been searching for.
Others Have Experienced Relief, and You Can Too!
If you suffer from poor digestive health, you can experience relief with chiropractic care. Studies show that chiropractic adjustments have helped many people overcome poor digestion. In one case study of 17 people with Crohn's Disease, 12 experienced remission with consistent chiropractic visits. Chiropractic also helped an 8-year-old boy who suffered from constipation problems since birth. Proper digestion was once again restored after only 2 months of chiropractic visits.
