When a person suffers symptoms of "heartburn", the sphincter, or valve, between the stomach and esophagus is often to blame. When this valve malfunctions stomach acid backs up into the throat where the tissues cannot withstand the acidity and a burning pain is the result.
Some people believe that certain foods bother them, such as tomatoes or spicy meals. But foods are not always the cause; faulty function can be to blame. Taking drugs, acids, and antacids does not address the cause of the malfunction. What controls the muscular function of the stomach valves? The answer is the nervous system!
Chiropractic adjustments of spinal misalignments (subluxations) may influence the nerves leading to the stomach. In this way, chiropractors strive to restore normal nerve supply to the stomach, with the goal of improving function. Consult your Doctor of Chiropractic for an examination to see if spinal adjustments can benefit you.
