Acid Reflux Relief In Winter Park

Acid Reflux Relief In Winter Park


Acid reflux is a common term used to describe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a chronic condition in which the contents of the stomach periodically back up through the cardiac valve and into the lower esophagus. Acid reflux can be caused by nutritional choices, the consumption of alcohol or caffeinated beverages, poor posture and abnormal sleeping positions. Other conditions, such as ulcers and hiatal hernias, can complicate acid reflux and make it more difficult to find relief.

Symptoms of acid reflux can include:

* Heartburn, an uncomfortable sensation in the chest and abdomen that sometimes accompanies a heavy meal

* Dyspepsia, or feelings of nausea after eating

* Regurgitation, which isn't the same as vomiting, but rather a sense of acid in the throat that causes wet burps and other unpleasant reflux sensations

* Less common symptoms, such as coughing, sore throat, respiratory conditions and sharper pains in the chest

Chiropractic Services Can Provide Acid Reflux Relief

Because GERD is chronic, it has to be addressed at some point. Antacids are only temporary solutions. Some conditions may require surgery, especially if the acid reflux is caused by a hiatal hernia or the like. When conditions like poor posture are involved, a chiropractor can address the problem of acid reflux.

Adjustment of the spine will correct the lingering imbalances that contribute to the condition, resulting in relief from the symptoms. Chiropractic services can also recommend adjustments in diet, sleeping patterns and exercise, which can further correct the condition. The Winter Park, Florida offices of Racine Chiropractic & Wellness Center can address issues of acid reflux relief.
