Over the counter medications, daily prescriptions, a plethora of home remedy suggestions and even, in sever cases, surgery are all treatments that are typical for those who suffer from acid reflux. And with so many people in the US who occasionally feel the burn from acid reflux, an estimated number that falls somewhere between 20 to 60 percent of Americans, none of these treatments may be ideal. But there is a treatment that may get overlooked but has among the very best rate of success, and WITHOUT drugs, home experimentation or worst of all surgery.
Chiropractic care, and specifically Chiropractic Neurology, is gaining ground in popularity when it comes to the treatment of acid reflux. An all natural approach to care without any side effects or daily drug regimen, Chiropractic Neurology seeks to find and treat the underlying causes of acid reflux. While medications treat symptoms that a person is already having, Chiropractic Neurology stops those symptoms before they can occur, leading to the ultimate goal of correcting the body back to its whole state of wellness.
While not a new treatment method, Chiropractic care and Chiropractic Neurology has surprised some patients who have sought out treatment for other conditions such as neck or upper back pain and found that not only were those areas improved but acid reflux or indigestion improved as well. How can that happen? The nerves in the mid back stimulate the stomach and GI track. If those nerves get inflamed or compressed, that part of the body may not function correctly so treatment to correct those nerves in turn, have a positive affect on the connected areas as well.
