Over 60 million Americans have reported experiencing heartburn on a monthly basis, and over 15 million experience them every day! Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), or Acid Reflux, occurs most commonly in elderly or middle aged people. However, younger people are starting to experience symptoms of this condition at an alarming rate. So how can chiropractic help acid reflux?
Acid reflux is a condition where stomach acid flows backward up into the esophagus. The symptoms include a burning in the chest that moves up toward the neck and throat. If ignored, it can cause more severe conditions, such as:
The good news is that regular chiropractic care can help eliminate the symptoms of acid reflux!
Misalignments in your spine put pressure on the delicate nerves exiting the spinal cord, creating neurological interference. That interference interrupts essential messages your brain is trying to deliver all over your body, including to the organs and muscles involved in the digestion process! By realigning your spine with our gentle and specific technique, we remove interference by taking the pressure off of your nerves. This allows your brain to properly communicate with your body, so that the body can digest normally again. As a result, many people suffering from acid reflux and other digestive issues (such as chronic constipation, IBS, and peptic ulcers) have seen a significant reduction in their symptoms after receiving chiropractic care in our office!
