Spinal Decompression and Digestion

Spinal decompression and Digestion. No one wants to worry about stomach issues. A rich and unhealthy diet can cause digestive issues, stomach pain, and back pain. This can turn into a severe chronic condition; studies have found links between spinal problems and gastrointestinal tract symptoms, which include:

  • Abdominal pain that radiates.
  • Constipation.
  • Difficulty controlling bowel movements.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.

Spinal Decompression and Digestion

Chiropractic treats the spine that is essential to the function of the central nervous system, which is responsible for digestion. When the nervous system is not functioning correctly, the other systems begin to malfunction. Chiropractic manual and motorized spinal decompression can help with digestion by releasing trapped gas from joints while improving blood circulation that is natural and non-invasive.

Spinal Decompression and Digestion

Spinal alignment and digestion are closely connected. The nerves in the thoracic and lumbar regions affect digestion. When the spine is out of alignment, it stresses the nerves. Nerves that are pinched or constricted are inhibited/disrupted from sending the proper signals to the digestive system. This can lead to new or worsening digestive problems. Spinal conditions that can cause digestive issues:

  • Herniated discs
  • Ankylosing spondylosis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Tumors

Studies have found that digestive issues, including discomfort, heartburn, and bloating, have decreased with regular chiropractic and spinal decompression and decreased constipation and irregular bowel movements. This comes from chiropractic reactivating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Increased Circulation

Related Posts
  • When the spine gets decompressed, it opens up the spine to circulate fluids throughout the body.
  • This flushes the lymphatic system, increasing the immune system’s function.
  • Increasing the circulation also provides additional oxygen and nutrients to the brain, improving signaling, memory, and concentration.

Improved Digestion

  • Poor posture compresses the abdomen and cramps the space the gastrointestinal tract needs to process food properly.
  • Decompressing the spine and correcting posture allows room for the muscles to contract, expand, and properly circulate waste.

Bowel Program

Treatment focuses on preventing further injuries and helping improve the individual’s quality of life. A doctor, chiropractor, health coach, or nutritionist can recommend a bowel program to help retrain the body to maintain regular bowel movements. These programs are personalized to the individual’s specific condition that takes into account:

  • Level of the spine injury or condition
  • Food and drink intake
  • Bowel movement pattern
  • Digestive problems
  • General health
  • Individual preferences

A bowel program sets up the timing of food intake, fluid intake, medications, and techniques to help bowel movements. The objective is to prevent spontaneous bowel movements, help pass stools regularly, and empty the rectum daily.
