“Well my trip was good, but my heartburn has been horrible!”
This patient in her mid-twenties had been adjusted at Dopps Chiropractic NE for a couple months. As we took care of her basic structure, the spine, we began to see evidence that her body was functioning better.
Now, she was sitting on the table, her hand pressed unconsciously to her sternum.
“I hadn’t really noticed, but I stopped taking my heartburn meds because it was so much better.” she said. “Now after being away and traveling for the summer, it’s back.”
Together, we were able to were able to connect the dots, piecing together that her heartburn had disappeared while being adjusted, because her body was functioning better. While on vacation, she wasn’t being adjusted and had driven for hours, from Kansas to Colorado and New Mexico.
Posture in the car is frequently horrible; static and confined. The structure of the thoracic spine due to posturing from driving was the direct result of the heartburn coming back. Hours in a restricted space takes its toll and the vertebrae are unable to adapt, so they subluxate.
Subluxation mean that the bone has shifted and is pressing on the nerves of the spinal column. This reduces the flow of information from the brain to the other systems of the body, resulting in reduced function…and symptoms like heartburn.
We got our traveler adjusted, specifically and scientifically. After a few times, her body had innately resolved the heartburn issue and she was off the meds once again.
