woman with stomach painOur bodies go through the process of digestion every day. This occurs when food molecules are broken down, vitamins and minerals are absorbed and toxins are flushed out.

Everyone has occasional digestive issues but some people have chronic symptoms. Rather than relying solely on medication, chiropractic treatment is a natural way to address digestive disorders.

How Digestive Issues Occur

Problems with the digestive tract can occur when food digestion slows down or stops, resulting in you feeling sluggish, tired and nauseous. Why does this occur?

Digestive issues are often related to food allergies or chronic diseases, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s Disease. Inflammation of the digestive tract can cause stomach pain, diarrhea and bloating.

While individuals who suffer from an inflammatory bowel disease are prescribed medication to help manage their condition, chiropractic has been proven to help ease symptoms.

Chiropractic for Better Digestion

Because the digestive and nervous systems are connected, digestive health starts with the spine. In fact, the upper and lower spine are responsible for regulating how fast food gets broken down and processed. As such, a spinal misalignment could affect proper digestion.

A chiropractor can perform non-invasive adjustments to get the spine back in alignment. Gentle pressure applied to compressed nerves can help the spinal column return to its normal position. The muscles and nerve pathways are then able to relax, leading to pain relief and improved function across the body’s core systems.

Additional Lifestyle Changes

Could your digestive problems be related to spinal health? A chiropractor can identify common causes of spinal compression, including arthritis, injury to the spine, abnormal alignment and poor posture. To keep the spine working properly, address discomfort or injury as soon as possible.

Certain digestive issues can be resolved with a change in diet. Consume more fiber to help move food through the large intestine quicker and lessen your sugar intake.

"The single greatest team of professionals I’ve ever met and worked with. From the moment you step in, Brooke is absolutely wonderful and always so accommodating with scheduling and brings so much cheer to the office. Dr. Wade is a phenomenal doctor and completely transformed my back after a work related injury that showed underlying spinal conditions. I now am pain free in my day to day activities and back to my normal active lifestyle. Couldn’t recommend this practice enough to anyone and everyone."

"At my first appointment, I couldn’t stand up straight. I am now able to go back to my regular exercise routine. The staff is very knowledgeable, very friendly and organized. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment, even when the office is very busy."
Amanda Bedding
"I lost my cousin (who was also a lifelong best friend) tragically back in November and happened to mention it during an adjustment, and a few days later, I received a handwritten sympathy card from Dr. Joe and the team. Things like that go a long way! I recommend CHCG without reservation."
Maxwell T.
"This practice has been the only place that got rid of my shoulder pain. Prior I tried an orthopedic and PT with no success. I was told it was just due to getting older. Dr. D doesn’t believe people have to live with pain and helped it go away. To top it all off, you never have to wait long in the waiting room."
Jennifer D.
