Gastrointestinal Disorders


Many of today’s prevailing health conditions have their roots in a multitude of gastrointestinal disorders. Examples include but are not limited to intestinal yeast infections, Irritable Bowel Syndrome [IBS], Crohn’s Disease, diverticulitis, spastic bowel or colon, Celiac’s disease, and acid reflux, to name but a few. Food sensitivities to gluten, corn, dairy, MSG, and artificial sweeteners, play a significant role in gastrointestinal and other seemingly unrelated conditions. Intestinal yeast infections frequently dismissed or discounted by physicians, have been one of the most underdiagnosed gastrointestinal ailments.

Gastrointestinal [G.I.] symptoms range from abdominal bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea, to more involved disorders and complications that might include arthritis, muscle and joint pain, allergies, food sensitivities, yeast infections, immune disorders, asthma, headaches and a multitude of other conditions and complaints.

Proper digestion is essential for healthy lifestyles. Health conditions that are not responsive to traditional or conventional medical diagnosis and treatment, should be assessed for efficient digestion, elimination, and proper nutritional habits.

Additional factors for gastrointestinal insufficiency may include but are not limited to:

Hypochlorhydria: Decreased levels of HCL [hydrochloric acid] in the stomach. Insufficient HCL levels cause incomplete digestion, poor absorption, and subsequently poor nutritional uptake, despite the fact that one might be eating well and taking supplementation. A Comprehensive Stool and Digestive Analysis (CDSA) can be ordered by your physician to assess appropriate HCL levels.

Malabsorption: When nutrition and supplementation are not absorbed in the bloodstream but rather excreted through the stool. A ‘Comprehensive Digestive and Stool Analysis’ (CDSA) can be ordered by your physician to assess malabsorption issues or a ‘Urinary Indican’ test will measure the complete digestion of protein.

Parasites: Come in all shapes, sizes, and varieties! Parasites can be any type of ‘unfriendly’ organism ranging from yeast, amoebas, giardia, and several other strains of bacteria. They are an overgrowth of unfriendly cultures that become a significant deterrent to health and wellness.

The gastrointestinal conditions referenced above and their related symptoms have been successfully treated when implementing lifestyle changes, incorporating nutritional medicine protocols, and Integrative Manual Therapy [IMT]. Power In Motion Rehabilitation specializes in the leading-edge techniques of Integrative Manual Therapy. Organ stress, myofascial restrictions within the abdominal cavity, and/or poor lymphatic circulation, affect peristaltic function. Our gentle, hands-on manual therapy approach, facilitates relaxation of the gastrointestinal tract as well as aiding in the gastrointestinal system’s ability to detoxify.
