New Roads Gut Health is Important at New Roads 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 important to the health status of our bodies, notably as we grow, age and have pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care of younger and older New Roads chiropractic patients likewise. New Roads Chiropractic Center also cares for their add-on “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 involved in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that many times leads to bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria affected 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 influences musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now modifications of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted 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 differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, too, 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 linked to reduced activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses reported the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) New Roads chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your New Roads chiropractor that it needs attention!
