Call Your Chiropractor to Resolve Gut Health Issues

Your chiropractic care provider may not be the first person you think of contacting for help with your gut, but you’ll be surprised at the connection between gut health and musculoskeletal issues.

Dr. Jeremiah Carlson of Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture considers how pain, injury, or an ailment impacts the entire body. He focuses on returning the body to a state of health and wellness, and nutritional counseling can be a part of the treatment.

How Gut Health Impacts Overall Health

The state of your gut has a direct impact on your health, including the functioning of the immune system. When inflammation is triggered, diseases such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other bone and joint problems often appear. When digestion slows down, you may feel tired and sluggish, lack energy, suffer from gas and bloating, and feel unwell.

What Causes Problems with the Gut?

There are many different problems, and if you have concerns, schedule an appointment with Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Many gut issues appear at middle age. Sedentary lifestyles with excessive sitting, lack of exercise, and years of poor dietary habits eventually impact the body. When troubles with the gut arrive, inflammation sets in.

Chiropractic Treatments Reduce Inflammation and Promote Gut Health

Your chiropractic care provider will conduct a thorough examination to determine whether spinal misalignments or subluxations may be contributing to your gut health problems. This can cause communication problems between your gut and brain.

If the vertebrae are misaligned in any way, nerves may become compressed. You may have heard the term, “pinched nerve.” 

The nervous system plays a major role in all parts of your body. Misalignments and compressed nerves can cause a number of problems, including digestive issues like acid reflux, diarrhea, cramps, gas, and bloating. By correcting spinal misalignments and reducing inflammation, digestive symptoms are frequently resolved.

Chiropractic Care Lifestyle Strategies for Gut Problems

Excessive sitting may also be contributing to your digestive ailments. If you experience reflux, bloating, and other gut problems, you may feel tired and achy. You may be less active as a result. Being less active makes the problem worse. Your chiropractic doctor will recommend lifestyle changes and help you return your gut to a healthy, functioning state.

Natural Ways You Can Protect Your Gut:

  • Avoid antibiotics unless necessary

  • Stay active with regular exercise

  • Get enough fiber in your diet

  • Probiotics and prebiotics

Chiropractic Wellness Care Helps Gut Health

At Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Dr. Jeremiah Carlson focuses on resolving underlying spinal misalignments and treating the source of the problem. Often, this, combined with healthy lifestyle adjustments, enables the digestive system to resume functioning normally.
