There are countless reasons why you could feel on fire after a meal. This burning, aching sensation in the stomach and throat, chest pain, and even nausea are not normal.

This is called acid reflux, and if you’ve experienced it, you know it’s not fun.

I’m Dr. Clint Clifford with Spoelstra Family Chiropractic, and I’ve had many patients come through these doors looking for a natural way to manage their acid reflux.

Here’s what usually happens, we run to over-the-counter relief first, but it keeps coming back, and it’s clear that we haven’t fixed the problem. Then there’s medication, which is riddled with side effects and usually takes two to three different prescriptions before the right fix is found.

There can also be a change in diet or exercise. Our body has to respond to everything we eat and drink.

We start with one thing: the chiropractic adjustment.

Adjustments focus on correcting the nervous system. Did you know that there are more sensors in the digestive tract than anywhere in the entire body? Most we don’t even feel.

It’s constantly working, and then by relieving pressure from the nerves, we’ve been able to help the body help itself. This goes beyond acid reflux, but we’ve seen incredible results there.
