Having problems with your digestive system can cause a lot of unpleasant symptoms, including constipation, nausea, diarrhoea, acid reflux, abdominal cramping, bloating, gas, hiatus hernia, fatigue, sleep disturbances and gallbladder troubles. Over the counter and prescription medications can help relieve the symptoms, but as soon as the medication wears off, so does the relief. Instead of just masking the problem, it’s better to find the cause of the problem and work towards correcting it.
Common causes of digestive problems
Often, there is compression, adhesion or strain on the ligaments and supportive connective tissue around the organs. This can cause discomfort and digestive symptoms. Injuries and falls, particularly after a fall on the buttocks can cause tension on the ligaments around the kidneys, often the cause of unresolved low back pain.
Just like the rest of your body, your organs can also suffer trauma. Falls, car accidents and other injuries can affect your organs – even if it doesn’t appear that the organ itself is injured. You can have the healthiest diet in the world, but if your body and digestive system is not functioning at its optimal level, you may have restrictive tensions in your digestive system which may be assessed and treated.
