Constipation is a condition in which the stool becomes dry, hard, or bowel movements become irregular. This can lead to discomfort and painful bowel movements. Constipation is often associated with menstruation, pregnancy or medication.
Chiropractic is an excellent tool that can be used to relieve constipation. The nerves in your mid and low back go to your colon. If the colon is not receiving the correct signals from the brain, constipation may occur. With regular adjustments we can relieve you and your loved ones, young or old, of the discomfort of constipation.
A message from one of our practice members:
“I hadn’t a regular bowel movement since my daughter was born 7 months ago. After my first adjustment, I was regular again!”
