4 Reasons to Manage Symptoms of GERD with Chiropractic Care
GERD, or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, is a condition in which acid from the stomach comes back up the esophagus and can cause irritating heartburn and pain. When you eat or drink, the contents move through the esophagus into the stomach. A valve normally stays closed to keep food in the stomach. However, in the case of those with GERD, this valve does not close properly, thus the contents of the stomach can leak back into the esophagus. This can cause a burning pain in the chest, heartburn, problems swallowing, or nausea. Medications can help but symptoms typically return when medication is no longer taken. For long-lasting relief from GERD, consider chiropractic care from a Rochester Hills chiropractor.
It Is Non-Invasive
Even though sometimes symptoms of GERD can be managed with medication, there are harmful side effects that often come along with taking medication. In some instances, more severe symptoms of GERD cause many to consider surgical options to correct the leaky valve. But before turning to these more invasive procedures, find out more about what chiropractic care can do for you. Chiropractic care is a natural, safe, and non-invasive method for managing GERD that gets to the root cause of the problem.
It Can Reduce Dependency Upon Medication
Too much medication can be a bad thing. However, chiropractic care from Rochester Hills chiropractors Dr. Brendan Shanahan and Dr. Thomas Madigan can reduce your dependency on medication while simultaneously bringing about relief. According to chiropractic case studies, many have found that through regular chiropractic care, they have been able to significantly decrease the use of medication or get off of medication altogether.
It Improves the Function of the Central Nervous System
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system that is responsible for how the brain communicates with the body. Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that disrupts communication throughout the body. This nerve interference can cause all sorts of problems, including an increase in symptoms of GERD. Through spinal adjustments from Dr. Madigan and Dr. Shanahan of Vitality Precision Chiropractic, proper alignment can be restored for optimal function of the central nervous system.
It Leads to Increased Health
There’s more that chiropractic care can do for you than just ease the discomfort and pain of GERD. Without spinal misalignments to disrupt the function of the body, it is able to be in sync once again. A body that is functioning as it should will experience high levels of health. Regular chiropractic care can
also alleviate chronic pain, headaches, digestion issues, and much more for vastly improved health, wellness, and overall function.
