Getting all of these systems in sync, through chiropractic care and beyond, is an excellent way to reach your health goals. So let’s dive in, and see how chiropractic care can get your digestion in order, and get rid of those terrible stomach problems. 


Our Digestion Problem

Digestive problems are a much bigger issue in our country than most people think about. These problems take a ton of different shapes and sizes, including:

  • Hernias
  • Constipation
  • Diverticular Disease
  • Gallstones
  • Acid Reflux
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis 
  • Liver Disease 
  • Pancreatitis 
  • Viral Hepatitis 
  • And more

Over 70 million people suffer from digestive issues in America, or roughly 20 percent! That’s a huge number of people, dealing with a wide range of issues, so let’s take a look at some of the general health effects these issues are causing.


How Digestive Problems Affect Your Health

With such a diverse group of ailments, there are obviously going to be a large number of ways that these ailments lead to. Some of the most common symptoms include bloating, diarrhea, gas, stomach pain, and stomach cramps. If digestive problems are left untreated, these lesser symptoms can lead to more serious ones, including lasting ulcers, and even stomach cancer. 


How Chiropractic Care Helps With Digestion Issues

In line with our holistic approach to health here at Petett Chiropractic, we recommend that your first step to solve digestive issues be dietary. Increasing the amount of healthy and fibrous food, and less sugar and trans fats, will go a long way to dealing with many digestive issues. Spinal alignments and chiropractic care can reduce general inflammation in your body, which sometimes prevents your body from properly digesting your food. If this is the case for you, a few chiropractic care sessions, along with a healthier diet, could get your digestion back in order!
