Good News for Seattle Residents Living with GERD or Acid Reflux Disease. Advanced Chiropractic Care May Mean Permanent Relief
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) also known as Acid Reflux Disease is a very common and chronic digestive disease that affects millions of Americans each year. While the symptoms of this disorder can be controlled with over the counter and prescription medication such as antacids and proton pump inhibitors, Seattle chiropractor and CBP expert Dr. Justin Favreau of the Stability Health Center is confident he can help merely by correcting the patient’s spine through advanced corrective chiropractic care.
The correlation between organ dysfunction, disease and spinal health has long been studied, proving the adverse affects of poor posture on various organs including the digestive system.
“In order to understand why chiropractic care can help eliminate GERD, we have to look at the spine and understand its role in the digestive system” explains Stability’s founder and chief chiropractor. “Simply put, the nervous system is essential to every cell in our bodies, every organ and of course every bodily function. Once this crucial nerve energy is blocked or hindered due to spinal misalignments, everything can – and will go wrong. The idea is to keep the spine as healthy as possible, ensuring nerve flow is unobstructed at all times, keeping the organs functioning correctly.”
Of course not all cases are the same, and while most patients suffering from GERD can benefit tremendously from regular chiropractic care, other cases may require other solutions. “This is by no means a one-size-fits-all approach. There are many variables involved, but from our studies and experience, we find that most cases can easily be treated with a calculated and customized course of chiropractic treatment” explains Dr. Favreau, adding “It is for this reason that we are offering a free initial consultation so that we can understand each patient’s unique needs prior to determining whether or not chiropractic care is right for them.”
Misalignements of the spine can lead to many ailments and symptoms including digestive issues, asthma, heart palpitations, allergies, respiratory disorders, trouble with vision, and depression just to name a few. This only serves to amplify the importance of spinal health, and how critical it is to get regular spinal checkups to make sure any misalignments are addressed quickly before it leads to something more serious and dangerous.
