Low Back Pain and Digestion

By Dr. Elliot Lysyk, DC

Low back pain is often coupled with digestive issues. How do I know? Well, it’s common for me to help patients improve their low back alignment, which relieves low back pain. And, as an added bonus, they often end up reporting an improvement in digestive issues such as constipation, irritable bowel, etc. As the network of low back nerves begin to heal through Chiropractic care, bowel and digestive function are rejuvenated as well.

Some parents know to bring their children and toddlers in for a check-up, because they’ve heard that Chiropractic may help with constipation and colic. They might be uncertain at first, but when baby finally goes to the bathroom following an adjustment, after four days of constipation, the parents become instant believers!
The bottom line:  Chiropractors specialize in the relationship between your nerves (which course down from your brain through the tiny holes between your spinal bones, feeding into your organs) and your health. This understanding is the foundation of our treatment. Re-aligning the spine helps with low back pain, neck pain and headaches, but it can also help patients improve many other unexpected health issues.
