Chiropractic and Digestive Issues

Keep in mind that chiropractors do not claim to treat conditions. We merely seek to remove stress and obstruction to your nervous system function, which is often the root cause of symptoms and dysfunctions. This is why people with a wide array of health problems see restored health and improved function with chiropractic care, because the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the human body.

A healthy digestive system is vitally important for overall health! Digestion is under control of your autonomic nervous system. This means that your body automatically does it and you don't have to tell yourself when to digest food. When there is a disturbance in digestion, the problem is often coming from the system that controls it-your nervous system.

The nerve supply exiting from the upper neck and mid-back are responsible for each stage of digestion. Digestion begins when we put food in our mouth and continues until its eventual exit. Neurological disturbance along your spine greatly hinders your body's ability to digest, absorb and eliminate, in order to have a healthy, well functioning digestive tract.

Only when pressure on the nerves supplying these regions is removed can your body function and digest at 100%, as you were designed. The human body is an intelligent self-regulating organism, which has tremendous healing and regenerating potential when given the chance.

There are also many dietary factors that can both support and harm your digestive system. Dr. Lacey will analyze your symptoms, dietary habits and full health history in order to determine the root cause of your digestive difficulties. We look forward to working with you toward better health today!
