A lot of patients that initially come in for back pain or other musculoskeletal complains tell us that they’ve seen a marked improvement in their other health complaints like frequently getting sick, sinus problems, and even digestive problems like Crohn’s disease. The association between organ disease, immune system problems, and the nervous system are well known in the medical community, but not to the general public. Chiropractors in Columbus, Ohio are able to help all of these by correcting the spine, which
will increase the connection between the brain and organs, allowing for better regulation of their processes. What’s great about this is that this allows chiropractors to treat Crohn’s disease naturally.
In Crohn’s disease patients, vertebral subluxations in the thoracic and lumbar areas can cause nerve irritation leading to a chronic inflammation in the tissues that nerve runs to leading to autonomic dysregulation and organ dysfunction. Conventional medical treatment is to give immune suppressing drugs, which merely eliminate the symptoms of the organ disease and never address the neurological root cause.
In one study of 17 patients who received chiropractic adjustments, 12 showed long-term and stable remission of their Crohn’s disease and 9 experienced reduced symptoms. In other words, 100% of the people that got adjusted improved!
And, while the pain of Crohn’s is often severe and understated, the other associated problems it produces are rarely mentioned. The aforementioned nerve compression leads to a chronic functional disorder having a significant effect on digestion, absorption of nutrients and liquids, conveyance of food as well as various other functions of the digestive tract extending to excretion.
So come in to Ability Chiropractic today and talk to one of our chiropractors about your health.
