Chiropractic for Digestive Issues

Perhaps digestive issues are due to our diets or inactivity. Perhaps it’s our increasingly sedentary lifestyles. Whatever the cause, digestive troubles seem to be on the rise. Digestion is what moves food through your body. It keeps the nutrients and vitamins and rids itself of the toxins. When this part of your body slows down or stops working, the result can be a sluggish, tired, sickly, much less productive version of yourself. It can wreak havoc on all parts of your life, from your physical health to your mental well-being to your motivation. Getting a handle on digestive troubles can be tough, but it’s not impossible. 


Trouble with your digestive tract could be a lot of things. Some people suffer from chronic problems like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, or Diverticulitis. All of these are irritations within the large or small intestine. They have what are called “flare-ups” where the symptoms and problems all come on at once and stick around for a while. Other people may suffer from chronic inflammation of the digestive tract, whether from a disease or food allergies, while still others may just suffer from a slower than normal digestive system. Whatever is giving you trouble, the symptoms are likely to range from abdominal pain, gas, bloating, a change in bowel habits, or a combination of all of these.


While some forms of digestive diseases require a doctor’s supervision and medication, others require nothing more than a change in dietary habits. Eating a healthy balanced diet can go a long way. Consuming large amounts of fiber and low amounts of sugar seems to be a good habit of sufferers of these kinds of diseases.



Chiropractic care reduces inflammation in the body and promotes healing. A misalignment of certain parts of the spine have also been shown to prevent proper digestion. Therefore, getting proper care may help to ease symptoms and get you moving again. After a consultation, you may choose to allow Dr. Chelsey to perform spinal manipulation to get your spine in proper alignment.
