Upper cervical chiropractic can play an important role in relieving the suffering of people who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other digestive issues and disorders.
Even the slightest misalignment in the upper cervical spine can impinge on the vagus nerve. This nerve, that begins in the brain stem and moves down, is largely responsible for the function of many of your internal organs. Prolonged misalignments of this nerve can certainly result in chronic digestive issues.
Additionally, some research suggests that blood flow, as well as stress can be factors that make digestive issues more prevalent. And all of these issues can be addressed with continued care through upper cervical chiropractic treatments.
