3 Types of Ulcers and How Chiropractic Care Can Help
You may know the feeling: the stomach rumbling, the dull burning pain somewhere in between your chest and belly, the anxiety and lack of sleep. If these things sound all-too-common to you, you are probably familiar with ulcers. One in ten Americans will experience ulcers at some point in their lives. While ulcers are common and often not serious, they can really be disruptive to your life. It’s often hard to pinpoint just what diet or medication will make you feel better rather than adding to your woes. Many people aren’t aware that routine chiropractic care can be a safe, natural, and effective way to manage ulcers and ulcer pain.
What Are Ulcers and Why Do I Get Them?
Three main types of ulcers are responsible for the discomfort most people feel: peptic, duodenal, and gastric. Peptic ulcers are typically found in the lining of your intestine and stomach. Duodenal ulcers are found in your small intestine, and gastric ulcers are found in your stomach.
Bacteria is the culprit of most ulcers, as it causes damage to the stomach lining, which allows stomach acid and digestive juices to get through the lining. What can be worse is that over-the-counter pain medication that seems like it would help can often hurt or exacerbate the problem because these medicines further erode the stomach lining over time.
To manage ulcers and ulcer pain, it can be necessary to make changes to your diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Limiting alcohol and quitting smoking can also help symptoms. But if your pain doesn’t go away, before you consider invasive surgeries or stronger medications, consult with a Rochester Hills chiropractor at Vitality Precision Chiropractic to see how we can help.
