If you suffer from reflux, a visit to a chiropractor may help reduce the symptoms of this disease.
Chiropractic Treatment for Older Children and Adults suffering from Reflux
Patients who are treated by their chiropractor for upper back or neck problems may find the treatment will also help relieve reflux.
If you have not considered chiropractic treatments for your reflux, you may be surprised to find spinal adjustments will ease the discomfort of reflux. Reflux may cause you to feel discomfort in your upper back between your shoulder blades. You may be helped by chiropractic adjustments to the spine. Chiropractic adjustments help to keep your nerve supply to the esophagus and stomach in good condition.
Patients with hiatal hernias may benefit from chiropractic treatment. A hiatal hernia occurs when the top section of your stomach herniates through your diaphragm. The diaphragm muscle may pinch the top part of your stomach and this can cause you to suffer from reflux.
The holistic care offered by your chiropractor may help you to control the severity and discomfort caused by reflux. Chiropractic care may mean you can take fewer drugs or no drugs at all, to control your condition.
