Chron's Disease in Lexington

Chiropractic Lexington KY Lady

Crohn’s disease affects three-quarters of a million victims in the United States. It is an inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn’s is widespread in the digestive tract, affecting the entire thickness of the bowel wall. Because it can attack any part of the digestive tract, the symptoms can vary from one patient to the next. Chiropractic care in Lexington can help you find relief from the symptoms of Chron's.

The Most Common Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease

  • Rectal bleeding
  • Urgency of bowel movements
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Appetite irregularities

Patients may also experience weight changes and menstrual irregularities. In severe cases, it can lead to fissures in the anus and fistula. According to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Crohn’s is considered a chronic disease that affects as many as 700,000 people in the United States. The condition is more common in adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35.

Common Treatment

The most common standard treatment for Crohn’s disease generally involves prescribed medications and harmful anti-inflammatory drugs to counter the inflammatory response in the GI tract.

The more holistic approach searches for the cause of the inflammation. Specific testing can narrow down possible causes so a customized plan can be made for each patient. The plan can include things like chiropractic adjustments, nutrition changes, anti-inflammatory herbs, stress management techniques, vitamins and minerals.

Common Causes of Crohn’s:

  • Infections in the GI
  • Poor digestion and absorption of nutrients
  • Food allergies
  • Bacterial imbalance in the gut
  • Medications and overuse of antibiotics
  • Poor nutrition

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic adjustments for a patient with Crohn’s disease focuses on correcting misalignment in the middle or lower vertebra of the spine. When the vertebrae become misaligned, the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord to the GI tract can become pinched or damaged. This can cause several problems in the GI tract, not allowing it to function at its fullest capacity. It is not uncommon for specially trained chiropractic doctors to treat patients with Crohn’s disease.

Increasing numbers of patients are seeking out alternative treatments for relief from symptoms related to Crohn’s disease. Chiropractic adjustments, careful monitoring of diet, and management of stress levels can make a world of difference for these patients.
