GERD Symptoms: Visceral Mobilizations: Can help

Do you suffer from GERD;  you know the signs and symptoms;  It is that burning sensation in your chest, throat and that sour taste in you mouth,  You many have difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), dry cough, hoarseness and feeling like you have a sore throat.  Many people that suffer from GERD or Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) this chronic digestive disease. GERD occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, stomach content, flows back into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash (reflux) irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD. Both acid reflux and heartburn are integral parts of this disease.  Many people take medication for this disease.  But did you know there is something else that can help.

Visceral Mobilizations assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. VM increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture.

An integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of a patient requires assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system.

 

Visceral Manipulation is used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influence general metabolism. Today, a wide variety of healthcare professionals perform Visceral Manipulation.
