Chiropractic Care for Constipation in Arlington TX

Baby getting adjustmentAs an adult, think about the times when you have digestion issues, whether it’s gas, slow digestion, bloating, or cramping. It changes our whole mood and can really put a damper on living life to its fullest. Even if we are stressed or find ourselves emotionally overwhelmed, this can result in feeling nauseated, constipation, or diarrhea.

Babies are not any different and are especially sensitive to tummy troubles because of their tiny bodies. This changes their behavior, just like it does to ours. They can suffer from constipation and gas, and the result is a very unhappy baby.

Digestive issues can be a symptom of a communication block between the brain and your digestive system, which are intimately connected. Chiropractic adjustments, gentle and specifically adapted for children, can help your little one get back to feeling better.

How Constipation Occurs

The brain-gut connection is served best when the highway of information flows freely throughout your nervous system. This allows babies to keep food down without having colic or acid reflux symptoms, digest their food so it doesn’t cause unwanted fermentation and gas, and effectively move it through their digestive tract, without diarrhea or constipation.

When your little one’s nervous system is stressed, this can cause the signals in their stomach to be either overactive or underactive. This interferes in the communication to their organs leading to dysfunction and symptoms. Often, stress is carried in the lower back area, and holding this stress in the spine and nervous system puts their bodies into fight or flight mode.

Fight or flight turns off the digestion functions and keeps blood flow away from their organs. Babies—and adults, for that matter—can get stuck in this reaction from emotional, chemical, and physical stress.

How Chiropractic Helps

Chiropractic adjustments can help break this cycle and restore normal digestion naturally.

Gentle adjustments realign the spine and clear any interference or stress in their brain-gut connection. It also turns off the fight or flight responses and kicks their bodies into an internal relaxation mode. Their bodies are able to rest and digest instead of stress!
