Alternative for Crohn's Disease
Time magazine estimates that about 800,000 people in America suffer from Chron’s disease. Although it primarily affects the middle aged and young adults, even teenagers can get it. Unfortunately, there is no cure. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available for this painful disease. The Relief Doc, a chiropractor in Acworth, GA, provides alternative treatments for Crohn’s disease.
Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease
The main symptoms of Chron’s disease are chronic diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, pain, sores, and discharge around the anus and feeling exhausted all of the time. You can also get a fever, nausea, vomiting, mouth sores, and not being able to sleep from the pain. If left untreated, this leads to weight loss, malnutrition, anemia, passing blood with diarrhea, kidney stones, inflamed skin, inflamed eyes, inflamed joints, and inflamed liver.
A chiropractor takes a holistic view of your symptoms, working with your doctor and physical therapist. Your spine is aligned to help your nerves function better, to lessen pain and promote healthy sleep. You may be given massage to promote healing and reduce inflammation of the soft tissues. Your diet is gone over to see where changes need to be made and if you need nutritional supplements.
Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy
A new kind of therapy is offered by a chiropractor near me and you. People breathe higher levels of oxygen in a special hyperbaric chamber. The oxygen helps cells function better, which speeds healing all throughout the body. A 2013 study suggests that treatments in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber helps reduce the inflammation which brings on attacks, helping patients reduce their need to take medication.
TENS Unit or Electrical Therapy
Electrical therapy has helped some cases of severe Crohn’s disease that would not respond to other treatments like medication. A TENS unit can be safely combined with other therapies or medication. It offers hope for people who do not want to have surgery. People with seizure disorders, some pain disorders and some types of cancer should not use electrical therapies like a TENS unit.
Stem Wave Therapy
This type of therapy started in Europe and has recently become approved by the FDA for use in America. This device helps stimulate the growth of stem cells to injured or inflamed areas of the body. Stem wave therapy and other electrical therapies are noninvasive and produce little to no side effects for most people. Ask your doctor or chiropractor if stem cell therapy is right for you.
