Millions of people worldwide suffer from digestive conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative colitis—with many finding little to no relief from traditional treatments. But, there’s good news! A holistic and non-invasive technique, Applied Kinesiology, has shown to be effective in both alleviating and treating these conditions through chiropractic care, helping improve gut health and digestion.
What is Applied Kinesiology?
Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic tool that evaluates muscle performance to uncover underlying issues in the body’s systems. By assessing how muscles respond to stimuli, such as that of light pressure, practitioners gain insight into the root causes of health problems and thus can tailor your treatment for optimal results. This includes identifying any issues affecting gut health. Once identified, the chiropractor can recommend specific treatments and lifestyle changes that help support good digestive health.
How can Applied Kinesiology help people suffering from digestive issues?
Studies show that IBS is linked to gut-brain disorders. When the digestive system isn’t operating correctly, neurotransmitters in the gut lining release compounds that affect the central nervous system (brain). Applied Kinesiology can diagnose muscle weaknesses and imbalances that indicate an issue with the neural pathways between the gut and brain. Chiropractic adjustments can fix misalignments, which often helps to improve IBS symptoms, by improving motion and mechanical function.
How can chiropractic care aid healthy digestion?
Chiropractic care may include adjustments of the spine, pelvis, and other manual therapies designed to restore balance in the body and help support digestive health. Chiropractic adjustments can fix misalignments, which often helps to improve IBS symptoms by improving motion and mechanical function. A chiropractor trained in Applied Kinesiology can provide specific treatments targeting your digestive tracts, including massage and soft tissue therapy. Soft tissue therapy can help loosen tight muscles that may interfere with digestion, while massage can help stimulate the digestive system.Treatments that can aid digestion also include postural corrections, stretching, and exercises that help improve the coordination of abdominal muscles. These treatments can help restore normal peristalsis and motility to the gastrointestinal tract as well as reduce inflammation associated with IBS.
Healthy Habits That Support Digestive Health
In addition to these treatments, lifestyle changes such as dietary modifications, stress management strategies, and exercise may be recommended within treatment plans. In addition to Applied Kinesiology, incorporating healthy habits into your daily routine can improve your overall digestive health.
Examples of best practices include:
Healthy habits can help regulate digestion and encourage bowel movement, leading to better gut health.
