A Regular Spine: How Toronto Chiropractic Care Helps Bowel Issues

Do you ever experience irregularity? There are a number of causes commonly attributed to bowel issues. Stress, diet, and infections can all cause issues, both temporary and chronic. But did you know that your spinal alignment can play an important role in the function of your bowels, and that regular chiropractic care in your local Toronto clinic can improve your regularity and relieve bowel-related ailments?

What Are Bowel Disorders?

‘Bowel disorders’ is a term that describes, in schoolyard terms, anything to do with poop. It can include a number of symptoms, the most common being:

• Bloating
• Gas
• Constipation
• Diarrhea
• Irregular or unpredictable bowel movements

While the symptoms are often temporary for many, some experience chronic conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Crohn’s Disease, both of which can become quite serious, sometimes even requiring hospitalization.

How Chiropractic Helps

While stress, diet, and infections can certainly be the cause or trigger for bowel disorders, your body’s capacity to handle these are tied directly to how well your digestive system is functioning.

Compression of certain nerves can inhibit your nervous system and decrease your organ function, making you more vulnerable to bowel disorders.

A recent study of patients with IBS showed 90% of patients treated reported excellent results while not a single patient reported zero or negative improvement.
