Stomach Pain? Treat It With Chiropractic Care

Stomach Pain? Treat It With Chiropractic Care, Dixon Chiropractic in Oakland Park, Florida

Stomach pains can get unbearable. The constant feeling of being bloated, muscle cramps, and the fear of not being in control of your bowels can really zap your energy. Not only does a stomach ache make you tired, but it also renders you cranky and vulnerable. Immediate treatment can alleviate this pain and make you feel happy and energized.

Why does your stomach hurt?

Stomach pain can occur due to a number of reasons. Eating more than we’re supposed to and undigested food can cause a host of problems, one of which is gas-induced stomach pain. Then there is the stomach flu which occurs from an infection in the intestine. In severe cases, stomach pain may be a symptom of a medical condition like Crohn’s disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and colitis.

Irrespective of why it happens, stomach pain can reduce the quality of life, especially when it happens so often.

Holistic chiropractic treatments can help relieve stomach pain 

Did you know that the stomach and spine are connected to each other?

Receptors in the brain instruct the body to work particular muscles and nerves to digest food. This movement causes the nerves located in the lumbar (lower back) and thoracic (middle back) regions of the spine to control the speed at which the food moves down the digestive tract and the pace at which the body digests food.

A slight misalignment in the nerves of the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine can put the entire gastrointestinal system into complete disarray. Soon enough, digestive issues like stomach pain set in.

This is where chiropractic treatments help. A highly-experienced chiropractor can gently massage your spine and re-align the spinal system without causing further discomfort. This will ensure your nerves relax and are functioning optimally.

Acupuncture and acupressure are two holistic chiropractic techniques also used to relieve stomach pain by a licensed chiropractor certified in acupuncture. They focus on reducing the pressure on your nerves by activating meridian points on your body to help relieve stomach pain. Focused breathing exercises help relax the muscles, which offer further comfort.
