Chiropractic Sooths Crohn's Disease Stomachs

By Chris Brown

We have all experienced painful stomach problems on occasion. However, for those with Crohn's disease, debilitating stomach issues can be a regular occurrence. The pain comes on suddenly and consistently. If not treated, it can worsen to debilitating levels and affect the ability of the patient to live a normal life. Luckily, there may be alternative treatments to daily medications and limited diet. Chiropractic has shown promise in relieving many of the symptoms of Crohn's disease and even, in some cases, lead to disease remission.

Crohn's Disease: A Pain in the Gut

Crohn's disease, simplified, is chronic inflammation in the digestive tract. This inflammation causes a range of abdominal and health problems including severe abdominal pain and diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, regular kidney stones, and fatigue. One of the scariest aspects of Crohn's disease is its ability to spread throughout the intestines and worsen with time, sometimes to include life threatening complications. Unfortunately, Crohn's disease has no cure. In place, they must seek out ways to minimize the symptoms and heal from inflammation. Some long-term remission has even been seen in patients who treat their condition regularly. So, don't worry, there is a hope for a mostly normal, pain-free life if diagnosed with Crohn's. Primary mainstream treatments for Crohn's involve some form of long-term medication and specialized diets.

How Chiropractic Can Calm the Intestines

For those wanting to supplement their medications, or manage their symptoms chemical-free, a visit to the chiropractor may just be the needed move. Of 17 Crohn's disease patients in a 2003 chiropractic treatment group, 12 saw long-term remission of symptoms. Chiropractic's ability to remove dysfunctions in the spine is attributed to these amazing, non-pharmaceutical results. It is believed by doctors that chronic nerve compression and subluxations (specifically in the thoracic and lumbar areas of the spine) contribute to improper inflammation responses in the intestines. When the disfunctions are corrected by spinal manipulation, the intestines perform more optimally and the most severe Crohn's disease symptoms are relieved.
