Everyone Poops

Ever had difficulty passing a bowel movement? Constipation can be a difficult thing to deal with. Often leaving you feeling bloated and in pain. Did you know that regular chiropractic care can help with this issue? There is loads of anecdotal evidence to help support this, from babies blowing out their diapers to patients reporting a need to use the restroom as soon as they get off the table but let's dive into some published research on the topic!

One 54-year-old lady had been battling constipation for nearly 8 months and had never seen a chiropractor. Her bowel movements had reduced to only 3 per week and she had a constant bloated feeling. With regular chiropractic care she reports being able to poop almost daily and has no other symptoms to report.

Another case study of a 34-year-old male with a 9-year history of irritable bowel syndrome resulting in significant abdominal pain and frequent bouts of diarrhea saw a significant reduction in abdominal pain and a 60-70% reduction in diarrhea frequency with a combination of physical therapy and chiropractic treatments after multiple different medications did not affect his symptoms. At a 6-month follow-up appointment, the patient reported even more improvement with fewer symptoms reported.

Everyone poops and although it may not be the most exciting topic, it's important to know that there are options out there to help in the cases where everything else has failed. Often resetting your nervous system is all that is needed to help your gut function right.
