As chiropractic treatment is getting popular day by day all over the world, people are opting for this natural treatment to get cured from various diseases and one of them is Hiatal Hernia. Sometimes a part of our organ protrudes beyond the wall confining it, to another area. This is called hernia. Many parts of the organs in our body can get herniated and there are many types of hernia such as Inguinal hernia, Umbilical hernia, Lumber hernia, Cooper’s hernia, and Hiatal hernia etc. Hiatal hernia is a hernia in the upper gastrointestinal area.
Sometimes due injuries, smoking, pregnancy, birth defects, intense pressure to the surrounding muscles due to persistent coughing, vomiting etc, or obesity, heavy lifting, poor posture, the upper portion of the stomach protrudes through the diaphragm which is located between the abdomen and chest cavity, and when the muscles surrounding this area weakens, into the chest cavity. This condition is known as Hiatal hernia, and many patients suffering from this condition have found immense relief through chiropractic treatment.
Burning sensation in the chest, chest pain, and change in appetite, nausea, difficulty in swallowing food and breathing problem are some of the symptoms of Hiatal hernia and though there are over-the-counter medications to cure this condition, chiropractic treatment is better with more positive results. But there are many people who are yet to understand about chiropractic treatment for Hiatal hernia and about how effective the treatment is. But before you understand how Hiatal hernia can be treated through chiropractic healing, you should first know what is chiropractic? Chiropractic is a surgery-free, hands-on treatment performed by a chiropractor known as Doctor of Chiropractic, to relieve pain and improve the overall health and well-being of the patient and put him back on his feet. It focuses on treating all the problems connected with the musculoskeletal system with attention on the spine.
Now let’s see why chiropractic treatment is recommended for curing Hiatal hernia? Chiropractic manipulation is one way to treat Hiatal hernia. The chiropractor exerts pressure on the abdomen, using his hands, to push the stomach to its natural position.
Another chiropractic technique involves the HH release technique which is pulling the stomach downwards during exhalation where the patients have found that they were able to breathe more comfortably. The chiropractor can also rectify the condition through SOT which is Sacro Occipital Technique, where the chiropractor uses Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (C. M. R. T) which is a hands-on technique. The Solar Plexus Technique is another chiropractic approach to cure Hiatal hernia.
An alternative therapy adopted by chiropractors for treating Hiatal hernia is visceral manipulation. This is an ancient medical treatment and involves massaging and manipulating the abdominal cavity and this treatment technique has been used by many chiropractors for treating various diseases. This manipulation is done by licensed and trained therapists to bring the stomach from the chest cavity back to its proper position. This process of gentle massaging has proved to be very effective and has provided great relief for many patients.
