Have you ever heard of the phrase you are what you eat?
Well that is only partly true!
You’re actually the sum of not only what you eat, but more importantly what you absorb and eliminate with healthy digestive systems.
The digestive system has it’s own nervous system called the enteric system. It controls digestive tract motility and blood flow within the walls of the digestive tract.
Normal digestion requires links from the enteric nervous system and the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). If these pathways are not functioning well, it can lead to digestive challenges such as intestinal motility disorders, absorption challenges and obstructions to name a few.
Chiropractic and Functional Neurology have supported patients who suffer with:
- Abdominal and pelvic pain
- Crohns disease
Chiropractic Care – Enhances communication between the enteric and central nervous system.
Abdominal / Visceral Chiropractic Adjustments – Alleviate stress on the abdominal organs.
Percussor Therapy – Myofascial release of soft tissues within and around the abdominal region.
Erchonia Low Level Laser Therapy supports scar tissue release and provides energy to enhance function of abdominal organs, soft tissues and neurological structures.
