Reflux, also known as heartburn or GERD, occurs when contents and acid from the stomach come back up into the esophagus. This happens when the lower valve of the esophagus does not close properly and seal the contents of the stomach inside. This can cause major discomfort and may even disturb your daily life. If reflux goes untreated it can lead to frequent clearing of the throat, a chronic sore throat, laryngitis, a feeling of a lump in your throat, neck pain, and more.
Fortunately, chiropractic can help restore the nerve flow to the lower esophageal valve. This means the valve will function properly and contain the stomach contents, relieving the discomfort of heartburn.
