Do you have a burning sensation in your stomach, chest or throat? Do you notice it particularly after a large amount of food, or particularly spicy food? This is commonly referred to as indigestion or heartburn but also known as acid reflux. If this occurs regularly or more than twice a week, we recommend you schedule an appointment to see our team. We can offer you a variety of treatments to help your acid reflux depending on the cause and severity.
Causes of Acid Reflux
Acid reflux affects all ages and has several causes and conditions which contribute to acid reflux. Common causes include pregnancy, some medications, weight gain or a hiatal hernia. Having weak back muscles and abnormal curvature of the spine can exasperate the symptoms of acid reflux. Certain foods can also trigger acid reflux such as chocolate, spices, fried food and carbonated drinks. Acid reflux doesn’t usually cause serious complications, nor does it affect the heart as the name ‘heartburn’ would suggest. It occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus causing great discomfort.
