Crohn’s disease is a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease that can affect any part of the digestive tract from the mouth to the rectum.
It is typically characterized by abdominal pains, diarrhea ( often times bloody ), vomiting & weight loss. It affects males & females equally, & usually presents initially in the late teens or early 20s.
Siblings of affected individuals are at high risk being 30X more likely to develop the disease.[flashvideo file=http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/11.27.2012.crohns.disease.bi-1.mp4 image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/crohns.disease.jpg width=500 height=299 /]
There are no known definitive causes for Crohn’s. Recent investigations describe it as an immune deficiency state and all medical treatments are restricted to controlling symptoms only.
If you suffer from Crohn’s or even if you are not sure, you need to know how chiropractic care has helped thousands of patients get relief.
When you look at The Chart of Effects of Spinal Misalignments found on this web-site, you will see how the nerves from the T12 level and the L1 level go to the small & large intestine ( 2 of the more common areas for the disease to develop ).
Invariably, people who suffer from Crohn’s will have compressed nerves (subluxations) at these levels.
And, if there are compressed nerves at these levels in seemingly healthy people, they will often times suffer from conditions & symptoms similar to Crohn’s.
Chiropractic adjustments will decompress these nerves & this is like turning the power back on in your body. And when the power is turned back on, your body will start to heal properly and function properly.
If you or someone in your family is suffering from Crohn’s disease and you are not getting chiropractic care, you need to call us right away.
Remember that consultations are always free of charge & family appointments are also available.
