Can Chiropractic Help My Heartburn

chiropractic help for heartburn

Many people experience the painful and uncomfortable symptoms of heartburn, indigestion and acid reflux. Hiatal hernias, problems with the valve opening and closing by the stomach and the very common problem eating too much of the wrong foods are just a few of the factors that contribute to these problems.

As there are many causes, people turn to many remedies to help. Chiropractic care is one way people are finding relief. The nerves that control the stomach, gallbladder and parts of the digestive tract are located in the middle back. When the spine misaligns and pinches on nerves in this area, the organs they control may not function at the optimal level; this can contribute to the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn. By removing this interference to the nerves, the brain is able to communicate properly and the body regulates and functions the way it should. Again, chiropractic care does not cure anything but it does remove the interference to the nervous system so your body can adapt, heal and regenerate to its highest capability.

Making sure to eat a healthy diet, keeping alcohol consumption to a minimum, keeping hydrated and staying active can help as well.
