Chiropractic care can treat many things. One common condition that people are often surprised to discover a chiropractor can treat in a very effective way is acid reflux. When you come to Campbell Chiropractic, you will see just how effective this treatment can be. Let us ease you into a life free of heartburn and stomach acid pain.
It is common for people to visit chiropractors to get treatment for issues of the nerves, muscles, and spine. Spinal pain in the neck or the back is among one of the most common reason people see chiropractors. Yet, it is not merely pain that chiropractors treat. There is so much more to chiropractic care than most people know. As traditional medicine shows itself to be ineffective at treating many common conditions, or to have too many side effects associated with its medications, people are seeking out alternative practitioners like chiropractors to see what they can do for them. This is usually how those who come to chiropractors for treatment for acid reflux discover it can actually be treated quite effectively this way.
The treatment of acid reflux with chiropractic usually involves manipulations of the spine that are designed to improve a person's posture. Poor posture is a common cause of acid reflux. Treatments are typically given about three times a week, for around 20 treatment sessions. Excellent results are typically observed after this amount of time, but the number of treatments received can be adjusted as necessary.
The spinal manipulations can be on the lumbar, thoracic, or cervical areas of the spine, or sometimes on all three areas. It all depends on where the posture problems are originating. If an area is especially tender to the touch, it is likely there is some muscle tension there that is resulting from poor posture. Areas of poor posture can also be determined with X-rays, and with a physical observation by a chiropractor.
Over the course of the treatments, you will be asked questions, either in verbal or questionnaire form, on how your condition is improving, and if actually is improving. If you are not already on medication, you will usually eventually come to a point where your condition is well controlled after receiving chiropractic treatment. If you are on medication, you may find you are able to reduce it gradually, until you are off of it entirely. These are the best results other patients with acid reflux have reported after receiving chiropractic care for the condition.
Come to Campbell Chiropractic to talk to our Castle Rock chiropractor about your acid reflux symptoms, and how our treatment can help you heal. By creating postural improvements through targeted spinal manipulations, we can help you achieve acid reflux-free living. Try it and see the benefits for yourself. It's a move you'll be glad you made.
