If you suffer from chronic indigestion, adjustments and some muscular work can help resolve digestive symptoms.
Studies have shown a direct link between mid back pain and indigestion. The nerves coming from the thoracic (mid back) area go to the stomach, pancreas, small intestines and gallbladder. Pressure on these nerves can cause disruption in stomach function.
Chiropractic adjustments can decrease this pressure and help to restore normal nerve impulses to the organs. Additionally, many patients who have stomach trouble have a lot of tension in the diaphragm and abdominal muscles. Gentle pressure and stretching to these areas can also relieve stomach symptoms.
