Acupuncture and Chiropractic for Stomach Pain
Dr. Oskardmay will ask you about your symptoms of stomach aches before treatment because getting proper care is the most important thing. Many people with stomachaches benefit from alternative medical care at our natural healthcare clinic. Chiropractic and acupuncture care options provide meaningful relief for many types of non-medical stomach pain, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), or abdominal pain sufferers who haven’t responded to medications or other medical procedures.
Using chiropractic adjustments with massage to restore balanced nerve flow to the stomach and surrounding areas, Dr. Oskardmay can help alleviate GI distress for many people. The brain and spinal cord carry nerve signals to the digestive system; disruption of nerve flow can occur from spinal misalignment and muscle imbalance in the neck, mid and lower back, which stresses the system. Using expert palpation with gentle spinal mobilization, Dr. Oskardmay will determine and correct areas of segmental disturbance to help you get back to feeling good.
Alternately, or in addition to spinal adjusting, you and Dr. Oskardmay could use acupuncture with massage to help alleviate stomach pain naturally. Good, pain-free digestion occurs without stomach pain when unimpeded qi (pronounced chee) flow happens. Several essential factors influence qi flow- posture, stress, nutrition, and environment; acupuncture treatment at our office can help restore balance to the system to get you back on track.
