If you suffer from painful and frustrating digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, Crohn’s Disease, or GERD, know that you are not alone.  Approximately three-quarters of Americans have reported experiencing uncomfortable symptoms of digestive issues such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. Men, women, and children alike may experience these uncomfortable symptoms, but these digestive problems don’t have to be a normal part of your life. Children, in particular, can be prone to suffer from constipation until they understand better how their body works.  For example, an 8-year-old boy struggled with chronic constipation and had experienced it since birth.  In addition to dietary changes, seeking chiropractic care 3 times a week aided in improving his digestive health and resolving his constipation issues. Nobody should have to suffer from these frustrating and uncomfortable digestive issues. Chiropractic care has shown to be an effective method for alleviating a variety of digestion-related issues so that you can go back to living life to its fullest.

Chiropractic Care Can Aid In Better Digestion

Turning to medications such as laxatives or other over-the-counter medications can ease digestive problems for the time being, but the problem lies in that these symptoms return after time, requiring more medication to treat digestive issues. Additionally, these medications only work 30-50% of the time, leaving many people feeling like there are no solutions for poor digestion and related issues. However, nothing could be further than the truth.  With chiropractic care from Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Grant Lisetor, you can expect to see a resolution to digestive issues both quickly and permanently.

Removing Nerve Interference Improves Digestion

The central nervous system is responsible for controlling the proper function of digestive organs, such as the stomach, intestines, and gallbladder.  Because the lumbar spine is so closely associated with these organs, any spinal misalignment can cause nerve interference, disrupting communication from the central nervous system to the body’s organs. Dr. Grant Lisetor will carefully assess the spine and gently adjust problem areas, removing misalignments and restoring nerve interference so the body’s organs can function properly once again.

Chiropractic Has Worked for Others

Case studies have been done to prove the effectiveness of chiropractic in improving overall digestion for those who suffer with intense or annoying digestive pains.  For instance, a case study was done involving 17 people with allergies. Some of these also presented with symptoms of Crohn’s Disease.  After removal of spinal subluxations, 12 people saw improvement of allergies and even found relief from Crohn’s!  Digestive problems don’t just affect adults, but many children also suffer from constipation, even at an early age.  One case study of a six-year-old girl with constipation, neck pain, and gastro-intestinal pains found relief from her symptoms after just 13 chiropractic visits.

If you or someone you love is fed up with simply coping with issues of poor digestive health, now is the time to get your life back.  Contact Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Grant Lisetor and his team at Greater Life Chiropractic to find out more information about how chiropractic can aid in proper digestion and alleviate digestive health concerns.
