Treatment for Digestive Issues in Charlotte

Man-wearing-grey-shirt-stomach-painDigestive issues can be a significant source of discomfort and can range from bloating and gas to more severe conditions like acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Chiropractic care offers a unique approach to managing these issues by focusing on spinal alignment and its impact on the nervous system.

How Spinal Misalignment Affects Digestion

A misalignment in the spine can disrupt the communication pathways between the brain and the digestive organs. When these pathways are compromised, the signals from the brain to the stomach and intestines—and vice versa—are not transmitted correctly.

According to Dr. Dunn:

If you don’t have the right messages going from the brain to the stomach or intestines, or if you’re not getting the right feedback from what’s going on down there going back up to the brain, they’re not going to work like they’re supposed to.

Chiropractic adjustments can remove these interferences, allowing the digestive system to function properly by ensuring the intestines absorb nutrients effectively and the stomach produces the correct amount of acid at the right time.

Addressing Bloating and Gas

Many people suffer from bloating and gas, often due to improper digestion and slow movement of food through the digestive tract. Chiropractic care can help alleviate these symptoms by improving the motility of the intestines.

Typically, when you’re getting a lot of bloating and gas, it’s because things are not passing through at the right speed. By removing the subluxations, we can get the bowels working like they’re supposed to. This ensures that food and waste move through the digestive system efficiently, reducing fermentation and the associated discomfort.

Relief From Acid Reflux and Heartburn

Acid reflux and heartburn occur when the stomach produces too much acid or when acid escapes into the esophagus. Chiropractic care can help regulate the production of stomach acid and improve the positioning of the stomach.

If you’re getting heartburn or acid reflux, it’s often because the stomach’s producing more acid than it should. Adjustments can help ensure the stomach and diaphragm are properly aligned, reducing the likelihood of acid reflux.

Dr. Dunn’s Personal Experience

As a young adult, Dr. Dunn struggled with severe gastrointestinal issues, which modern terminology would likely classify as IBS. Despite various medical treatments, his condition persisted until he tried chiropractic care.

After six months of relatively high-intensity chiropractic care, Dr. Dunn experienced a phenomenal change in his life. It’s been about 40 years now, and he hasn’t taken any further medication for his digestive issues.
