Manahawkin Gut Health is Important at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center

We’re one big, happy family. Who are “we”? Our bodies and the billions of microorganisms living with us in harmony…most of the time! The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite influential in the health status of our bodies, especially as we grow, age and experience pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center takes care of young and old Manahawkin chiropractic patients likewise. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center also cares for their add-on “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it influences the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases associated with aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria influenced pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota discrepancies can help doctors diagnose AIS and set up options for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are seen in other human diseases, also, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases associated with decreased activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses discovered the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Manahawkin chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Manahawkin chiropractor that it needs attention!
