Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help My Digestive Problems?
Doctors of chiropractic have helped millions of people obtain relief from back pain, neck pain, tension headaches and other painful symptoms related to the spine. What most people don’t know is that chiropractic care may help with digestive issues as well.
Nerves from many regions of the spine have a definite connection to digestion. These spinal nerves are capable of speeding up or slowing down the passage of food through the gastrointestinal tract, increasing or decreasing the amount of digestive juices secreted into the tract, and sending a greater or lesser supply of blood to various digestive organs.
Disturbing these spinal nerves can negatively affect functions affected by these nerves, including digestion, possibly leading to the digestive problems you may be experiencing. By keeping your spine in proper alignment, these nerves can perform their functions properly and keep your entire body in good working order.
Dr. Josh, Dr. Lindsey, and Dr. Aaron have helped many with digestive problems. If you or a family member has digestive concerns, call Watkins Family Chiropractic for a free consultation. We are located in Savage and serve many in Prior Lake, Burnsville, and Shakopee as well.
