Seattle Chiropractor – A Lot More Than Just a Back Doctor

Chiropractors are more than just back doctors, but whole body wellness experts. See what makes this Seattle Chiropractor unique.

Seattle Chiropractor - More than just a back doctorSeattle, Washington – Most people think about seeing a chiropractor when their neck hurts or they’re suffering from back pain. That’s as true here in Seattle as it is across the country. The reality is that chiropractic works on the whole body, helping with not just back pain, but a variety of other symptoms, too.

Anecdotal evidence and research studies indicate that chiropractic adjustments can alleviate other health problems as well, ranging from improving circulation to relieving allergies, acid reflux, urinary tract and even menstrual issues.

There’s really no mystery or magic involved in the process. The principle behind chiropractic is that the nervous system controls every function of the human body. When this critical system is operating the way it should, nerve energy from the brain travels down the spinal cord, out to the nerves, and to all the limbs, organs and parts of the body.

Unfortunately, sometimes the vertebrae in our spine become misaligned, which chiropractors call “spinal subluxation.” Spinal misalignments can occur in many ways. They can be a result of poor posture, auto accidents, slips and falls, sports injuries, and even birth trauma. When the spine is misaligned, the flow of energy is disrupted – much like a kink in a garden hose disrupts the flow of water.

That’s where chiropractic comes in. Chiropractors specializing in corrective chiropractic care – more specifically a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) – aim to realign the spine and ensure that nerve energy is flowing to all vital organs. By eliminating spinal misalignments, all systems and organs can begin to function properly again, resulting in a healthier body.

Dr Justin Favreau is among a handful of chiropractors in the Seattle area certified in CBP, which is the most researched, scientific and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique on the planet.

Seattle Chiropractor – Can Chiropractic Help Eliminate Acid Reflux?

Study after study shows the significance of chiropractic care as it relates to eliminating acid reflux.

Medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, are the most common treatment for GERD. Many patients also watch their diets; avoiding spicy foods and caffeinated beverages as much as possible. Some also find relief by elevating the head of their bed to prohibit acid from flowing into the esophagus.

But none of those solutions addresses the root cause of GERD – the weakening of your esophageal sphincter, which allows acid or bile to back up into the esophagus. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned in 2010 that some medications prescribed for GERD, such as proton pump inhibitors, carry an increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine.

A pre-experimental study involved 10 GERD patients sent for chiropractic treatment by a gastroenterologist surgeon. Through endoscopic exams, researchers verified an improvement of “58 percent of esophagitis degree caused by GERD.” See study here.

Why? A study in Neurogastroenterology & Motility magazine provides a clue. It demonstrated that GERD impacts spinal nerves. And chiropractors are experts on the spine. They know that spinal misalignments put pressure on the delicate nerves flowing through the spine and interrupt the nerves’ ability to communicate with your limbs and organs. Like a hose with a kink in it, your body can’t function at its peak.
And because the nervous system is responsible for every function of the body, when that nerve activity is inhibited, it can lead to disturbances in your stomach function, giving rise to GERD.

The Stability Health Center in Seattle is among only a few facilities that practice the Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP protocol. This revolutionary and highly advanced chiropractic technique is world-renowned for thoroughly addressing the root cause of maladies caused by spinal misalignments, and methodically correcting the spine back to health.
