Why NuView Health Medical May Help You with Indigestion
The goal of a chiropractor is to focus on the overall health and function of the body by ensuring the central nervous system and spine are functioning properly. When the spine and supporting structures have subluxations or spinal misalignment, digestive health issues such as GERD or acid reflux may occur. Our chiropractors will attempt to restore nerve flow by removing subluxation, which is a partial dislocation of the vertebrae, allowing restoration and healing of the digestive system in a gentle and non-evasive manner and without the need to rely on medications.
By using non-evasive, gentle manipulation to correct subluxations in the spine, stress within the nervous system will be diminished allowing your digestive system to be healed and work properly with multiple treatments.
At NuView Health Medical, our patients are provided with guidance on making improvements to their diet, weight loss and will develop a suitable exercise plan to treat your digestive issues. When these new efforts are combined, the opportunity for acid reflux to reoccur is significantly reduced.
