The human digestive system is a series of organs that converts food into essential nutrients that are absorbed into the body and eliminates unused waste material. It is essential to good health because if the digestive system shuts down, the body will also begin to shut down.
Some digestive issues can be coupled with other aches and pains like lower back pain, rib pain or abdominal pain. Therefore, it is important to find out the source of the issue in order to achieve the best recovery.
How Bridgeham can Help?
Should you be presenting with a mechanical pain we would usually recommend that you see one of our osteopaths for an initial assessment and full case history. If it is determined that the issue is due solely to the digestive system, we may then recommend that you see the nutritionist or acupuncturist for further treatment.
It may also be appropriate to see a Massage Therapist has experience with abdominal massage for a treatment.
In addition, we would like to get you moving as exercise and activity help with digestion and stress reduction. We have a number of different Pilates mat classes and also studio equipment classes depending upon ability.
It would also be very beneficial to consider an appointment with our Nutritionist to see if the food we eat might be causing any unwanted symptoms and whether we can remedy it with our diet.
