Preston Gut Health is Important at Chiropractic Associates

The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite important to the health status of our bodies, especially as we grow, age and feel pain.

Chiropractic Associates also cares for their accompanying “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to keep them in a a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it affects the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases related to 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 for developing scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases like 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 large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and set up choices for the patients to modify their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are present 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 reduced activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses discovered the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Preston chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Preston chiropractor that it needs attention!
