Common Digestive Disorders in Boulder, CO

Common Digestive Disorders | Chiropractor for Gut Health in Boulder, CO

Hello, everyone. Dr. Duff here from TCB Chiropractic in Boulder, Colorado. Today, I want to discuss digestion and some common digestive conditions we frequently encounter in our office.

How Chiropractic Helps Upper Digestive Issues

One prevalent digestive condition is GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disorder), which manifests as symptoms like acid reflux, stomach pain, discomfort, heartburn, and a sensation of acid moving from the stomach to the throat. At TCB, we assess the spine and the nervous system, particularly the nerves associated with the upper neck and upper back that innervate organs like the esophagus and stomach. We aim to identify and address any postural distortions or misalignments that may be affecting the function of these organs.
Another common digestive issue is IBS (inflammatory bowel disease), which involves challenges with the motility and contractions of the small intestines. The nerves controlling the small intestines originate in the mid-back area. Addressing misalignments and promoting better posture in this region can help alleviate IBS symptoms and enhance food motility through the digestive system.

How Chiropractic Helps Lower Digestive Issues

Conditions like constipation and diarrhea often stem from issues in the lower back affecting the nerves responsible for the lower digestive system. Patients with back pain may also experience altered digestive function, influencing the large intestines and colon.Bloating and gas are widespread digestive concerns related to stomach function. Nervous system stress in the thoracic spine may impact the stomach’s ability to properly digest food as it moves through the digestive tract.Autoimmune conditions like Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease pose challenges due to chronic inflammation in the linings of the digestive system. These conditions can be complex to diagnose and treat. In our office, we conduct thorough examinations to identify nervous system stress affecting digestive function and tailor treatments accordingly.

It’s crucial to recognize that chiropractic care can be beneficial for individuals experiencing various digestive difficulties. If you have questions about these conditions or how chiropractic care may help, feel free to reach out to us through our website, email, or phone.
