So, the question remains: how can chiropractic care help reduce the symptoms of GERD?
The nerves that correlate to the esophagus, stomach, etc., reside in the thoracic spine (mid-back area). If, for some reason, there is a vertebral spine misalignment causing nerve irritation in that area, that could mean the body is not able to process the foods correctly, thus possibly creating symptoms of GERD. The only way you could possibly know is by having a chiropractic evaluation and finding out if there is in fact a spinal misalignment. Then, by tracking your child’s diet along with treatments, you may be able to see if there is a benefit.
Adjusting the spine that directly effects the stomach has proven results for these conditions. In addition the chiropractor may manipulate the stomach and also give nutritional advice.
As an alternative to traditional allopathic medicine, chiropractic care may give your child not just temporary relief but may indeed offer a permanent cure.
Definitely take your daughter to a chiropractor. If she has a SUBLUXATION in her mid-back, the nerves from T5, 6, 7 innervate the stomach and small intestines for digestion, as a chiropractor, we adjust the spine to relieve these nerves, and it may help her body heal itself from within. I also recommend she start drinking Alkalized water to decrease the acid in her body. You can find out about ALKALIZED WATER AT WATER-REVOLUTION.com/DRJ. My 16- and 17-year-old sons and I are drinking 4-5X the water we used to drink, cleanest, purest water I’ve ever had. It may be very helpful for your daughter.
