Digestive Disorders Helped without Drugs

Upper cervical chiropractic and digestive disorders

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) affects anywhere between 12 and 30% of the US population. IBS is a severe digestive disorder which can cause extreme abdominal pain and discomfort. Sufferers can also find they have other symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea and constipation; they may have unpredictable swings from one to the other at any time.

It can be a distressing problem that is often very tricky to treat successfully. Many sufferers find that the traditional methods of treatment can be ineffective. Those who do suffer from IBS or live with someone who does, know how disruptive IBS can be to everyday life.

IBS can be irritated by certain foods such as those high in fat, sugar and alcohol. It can be that stress is a contributing factor to the problematic symptoms of IBS.

As well as the medicinal treatments that your practitioner can prescribe, there are many different alternative therapies you can try to treat IBS,

  • Herbal remedies
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
  • Hypnotherapy

Upper Cervical Chiropractic for IBS

Upper cervical chiropractic was first developed in the 1930s. An extremely effective approach, Upper Cervical Chiropractic is used to help many people with many different disorders, but it has shown to be very effective in helping to improve the health of people suffering with IBS and other similar digestive disorders. The upper cervical chiropractic approach is used to help align the posture of the neck and upper area of the spine and remove irritation of the vagus nerves that control the digestive system.

This technique is a great way for any sufferer of IBS or similar digestive problems to treat their symptoms without the need for medication and it has none of the side effects of any medical intervention.

What you may not realize is that, our bowels are full of nerve endings, just as many as our brains in fact! If our brain struggles to send and receive the important nerve messages from our gut due to upper neck misalignment, then we start to run into problems. This is where Upper Cervical Chiropractic comes into use. Because the treatment realigns your spinal posture you will find it improves the quality of messages sent and received by your entire nervous system.
