Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD / Acid Reflux Disease), is becoming more and more prevalent throughout the world, especially among middle-aged and the older segment of the population. Ignoring GERD symptoms or failing to eliminate the cause, can lead to ulcers and esophageal cancer.
While diet, smoking, stress, caffeine intake, and certain drugs all contribute to GERD, recent studies suggest that lumbar kyphosis – or the abnormal curvature of the spine – combined with back muscle weakness, can have a “significant effect” on the presence of the disease.
The nervous system is responsible for EVERY function of the human body, including movement of our limbs and the function of our vital organs. The slightest abnormalities and misalignments in the spine – as a result of poor posture, accidents, injuries, or birth trauma – will put unnecessary and often dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spine.
Nerve interference can greatly diminish the amount of vital nerve energy reaching the organs, including the stomach. If left untreated, the stomach and digestive tract will go into a state of dysfunction, and eventually disease. Many GERD sufferers under the care of corrective care chiropractors have reported significant reduction in their symptoms. That’s because realigning the spine back to its healthy shape and strengthening the back muscles allows nerve energy to flow freely throughout the body, while restoring normal function to the stomach and other vital organs.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP is one of the most researched, scientific, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. It aims to realign the spine back to health, eliminate nerve interference, and return the body to a state of health and wellness.
