Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Posted on Sep 15, 2019


So many people have digestive problems. And for some, their digestive problems can be labelled with terms like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or, most likely, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

IBS is quite common. It’s not technically a disease, but, rather, classified as a “functional disorder.” Does it have specific identifiable causes? Nope! That said, researchers think that nervous system miscommunications are probably a main reason people experience IBS. If the spine is misaligned, it’s not unusual for a person to be experiencing symptoms of IBS. Basically, there’s interference between the brain and the intestinal tract, such that the bowels aren’t working as intended. People with IBS don’t have “normal” bowel movements. Instead, they have a lot of alternating constipation and diarrhea, which is definitely no fun, especially at work in an office environment.

Did you know the upper lumbar vertebrae contains nerves which happen to connect to the digestive system, including your stomach and intestines? If and when there’s a “subluxation,” (a structural dislocation) present in the vertebrae, the digestive system doesn’t work well.

Chiropractors can help people who suffer with/from IBS… chiropractic adjustments have the awesome ability to encourage the body to produce regular, solid, pain-free bowel movements. While this may not be the case for every individual (since all people respond differently), enough people with IBS have found relief thanks to chiropractic care!

Instead of relying on medications to deal with IBS, why not have a chiropractor use safe, gentle, non-invasive hand manipulation to guide your vertebrae back into their proper places? When they do this action, strain is taken off the nervous system. Digestive issues can subside… besides IBS, chiropractic care has helped many people get rid of diarrhea, constipation, acid reflux, and heartburn. A chiropractor takes a drug-free, holistic approach to you and your body– and it’s amazing how a few adjustments can make a world of difference in how someone feels.

Have you been experiencing digestive issues such as IBS? If you’re tired of pain, cramping, bloating, fatigue, diarrhea and constipation, then it’s time to do something about it. Why not try chiropractic care and see if it helps? Make an appointment at Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN, by calling 651-464-0800 or emailing info@lakewoodschiropractic.com.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
