Do you suffer from gastroesophageal reflux, or acid reflux? Have you tired medications that don’t work, medications that sometimes work, and dietary changes that don’t seem to ever help enough? If you’ve been suffering through the challenges of acid reflux, you know that there isn’t one treatment that works for every individual, and you may have found that there are no treatments at all that work for you. At the St. Paul Chiropractic and Natural Medicine Center, we want to provide you with an alternative to medicating your acid reflux problem or suffering though it without any form of help. Through chiropractic care, our chiropractors and natural medicine doctors of St. Paul, MN can help you manage acid reflux symptoms by targeting the source of your acid reflux, not just the reflux itself. Through chiropractic adjustments, and perhaps recommended dietary changes, we can help make sure your every waking hour isn’t spent thinking about your acid reflux.
Relationship Between the Nervous System & Gastroesophageal Reflux
Before you can understand how chiropractic adjustments can provide relief for gastroesophageal reflux, you have to first understand the relationship between your nervous system and your acid reflux. Your nervous system is responsible for all communication within your body, sending signals to and from your organs to signal when it’s time to make a change in the body – including digesting food. When you eat and your stomach doesn’t receive the “signal” to start digesting, it can cause serious complications in the stomach and digestive tracts. In order for your digestive system to work properly, then, your nervous system needs to be working properly as well.
How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Help with Acid Reflux?
Now that you understand the connection between your nervous system and digestive system, let’s talk about how chiropractic adjustments can help improve that connection and ensure that your body is sending and receiving the right signals at the right times. With chiropractic adjustments, we are able to target a number of your body’s systems – the nervous system included. By making subtle adjustments to the spine, we are able to relieve pressure on the nerves throughout your back, neck, and entire body depending on the amount of tension we relieve, which ensure that your nerves are free to do their job. Once we’ve relieved the nervous tension with adjustments, you can expect to see improvements in your acid reflux, perhaps even eliminating the problem altogether with routine chiropractic care.
Dietary Changes to Manage Acid Reflux
While chiropractic adjustments are capable of relieving gastroesophageal reflux, it sometimes isn’t enough on its own. That’s why we often recommend dietary changes to patients who we believe would benefit from alterations to their diets. At the St. Paul Chiropractic and Natural Medicine Center, our St. Paul, Minnesota chiropractors and natural medicine doctors will prescribe a plan to manage acid reflux, including chiropractic adjustments and nutritional changes, so that you can stop feeling discomfort and start feeling relief.
