December serves as an opportunity to discuss Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, conditions that affect over 1.6 million people throughout the United States.
Crohn’s disease is one of a few conditions that are often referred to as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). It is is a chronic inflammatory condition that exists in the gastrointestinal tract and affects the end of the small bowel and the center of the colon.
If you have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and have not found a viable solution for treating your symptoms, contact the Chiropractors at AICA Marietta for immediate support.
Crohn’s Disease Symptoms
Patients who suffer from Crohn’s disease tend to experience a variety of uncomfortable symptoms such as diarrhea, anemia, extreme exhaustion, and abdominal pain. Some patients may never experience any symptom, while others are committed to a life of chronic pain that never dissipates.
Other common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:
- Joint pain
- Bowel obstruction
- Anal fissures
- Mouth ulcers
- Skin rashes
Chiropractic Care Is Effective for Treating Crohn’s Disease
The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research published a recent study that proves how Chiropractic care is effective for helping patients who are diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. The results of their study concluded that regular Chiropractic care supports long-term remission and provides relief for most symptoms.
The study reviewed 57 individuals who were separated into two distinct groups. The control group was given traditional medical care for their condition, while the second group received the same type of treatment with the addition of Chiropractic Adjustments.
The medical experts who performed the tests found that vertebral subluxations (interferences that develop in your spine) are a common trait within patients who have allergies and Crohn’s disease.
The results of the tests showed that 70 percent of the patients who received adjustments displayed long-term remission of their symptoms.
The researchers who conducted the study concluded that chronic nerve compression and vertebral subluxations that exist in the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine directly affect the immune systems ability to function correctly within patients who have Crohn’s disease.
Other Natural Solutions For Treating Crohn’s Disease Symptoms
Unlike other forms of traditional medicine, Chiropractic takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that Chiropractors offer treatment solutions that go beyond physical or tangible remedies.
In fact, most Chiropractors offer patients specific techniques that are complemented with custom diet and exercise routines.
For patients who suffer from Crohn’s disease, the Chiropractors at AICA Marietta recommend consuming foods that contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids to prevent particular symptoms from appearing.
- Salmon fish oil
- Egg yolks
- Chia seeds
Are all rich with omega-3 acids and should be consumed on a regular basis to effectively manage their symptoms.
