Did you know that chiropractic care can help with constipation? Despite being known for relieving back pain, chiropractic care is actually a holistic approach to healing the body. Today, we’ll dive deep into how neurological-based chiropractic care can address the root causes of constipation, and how the Wellery can help you better understand the connection between your nervous system and gut health.
Constipation is awful and can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as stress, lack of exercise or fiber intake, not drinking enough water, and certain medications. While dietary and lifestyle changes can help alleviate constipation, sometimes there are deeper underlying issues that need to be addressed.
A neurological-based chiropractor can detect areas of stress in the neuromusculoskeletal system that may be disrupting the brain-gut communication. For example, the lower back and sacrum are common areas that experience nervous system interference when dealing with constipation. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to remove interference so that the brain and gut can properly coordinate gastrointestinal motility.
At the Wellery, we use thermal scanning technology to identify the source and quantity of neurological interference in the body. From the scans, we determine where to provide gentle chiropractic adjustments to improve the connection between the brain and gut.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we also provide specific at-home stretches and exercises to aid in the unwinding of tension in the body that often accompanies constipation. These stretches and exercises help maintain proper circulation and muscle movement, which can help keep your digestive tract functioning properly.
It’s important to note that chiropractic care is not a direct remedy for constipation. However, it can play a critical role in addressing the root causes of constipation. By optimizing the nervous system’s connection between the brain and gut, chiropractic care can help improve gastrointestinal motility and alleviate constipation.
