Constipation Treatments in Garden City, MI
Constipation is an uncomfortable and sometimes even painful condition in which it is hard for the sufferer to have a bowel movement. This difficulty might be due to hard stools or a sluggish digestive system, but whatever the cause it is problematic for many people.
What Causes Constipation?
Constipation can be due to many different factors. These can include not eating enough fiber or drinking too little water. Either of these can cause stool to be too dry to pass easily through the digestive tract. Another cause can be a sluggish digestive system. Staying active can help keep the digestive system active and regular.
However, even with these natural methods, sometimes the constipation sufferer cannot find relief. That is where chiropractic treatment can help.
Chiropractic care is a proven method of treatment for the symptoms of many conditions including constipation treatments. Studies have shown that the use of chiropractic treatments, particularly adjustments in the lower spine, reduced constipation in sufferers. This reduction led to an improvement in their overall quality of life.
How Does It Work?
Nerve endings throughout our bodies act as pathways so that messages from our digestive and nervous systems can reach the brain. When these nerve endings become blocked by misalignment, messages can’t get through properly. With chiropractic care, the body can become re-aligned, or adjusted, to unblock the pathways. This realignment allows messages from the digestive system to reach the brain and can help the body use its own mechanisms to process constipation issues properly.
