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.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
