There are many things that can cause low back pain, many of which require no significant injury and often present themselves out of the blue with no known cause. However, most spinal pain conditions are treatable. The first step to treating the problem is to identify the underlying cause. Most people with back pain put it off as normal for many years until the condition has progressed to a significant problem. People self medicate through pain pills and muscle relaxers. These symptom based medications can relieve the pain for a short period of time, but will never resolve the underlying problem. Spinal conditions, as with every condition, responds best if treated early and stopped from progressing into requiring more serious interventions, such as surgery.

Lumbar spinal manipulation.

Can chiropractic help stomach or intestinal problems?

Lower spine manipulation can improve gastrointestinal symptoms. The nervous system controls everything in the body. Think about it. You cannot feel yourself digesting food or control your digestive process. The autonomic nervous system controls these processes. For instance, if there is a misalignment within the spine causing irritation on the nerve root that provides the signals to your GI tract to tell it what to do, wouldn’t it make sense that there could be dysfunction? The answer is yes. The following are symptoms based on the autonomic nervous system that can be improved by lumbar chiropractic care:

  • Bloating
  • Cramping
  • Stomach tightness
  • Diarrhea and constipation
