Dr. Dusty Explains the Link Between Digestive Issues and Upper Back Pain

Jackie came to Mattingly Chiropractic, home of one of the best St. Louis Chiropractors, because she had some upper back pain. But, little did she know, it was digestive issues causing her back to hurt. It turns out there’s a link between your spine and your stomach, liver and gallbladder. When you experience digestive issues, they can affect some of the nerves connected to your spine, resulting in back pain.

Dr. Dusty not only alleviates Jackie’s upper back pain with a chiropractic adjustment; he makes adjustments to her stomach in order to help prevent problems, like acid reflux and hiatal hernia, from occurring. Watch the video to see how he does it.

If you’re experiencing digestive issues, but are also feeling pain in your back, the two could be connected. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dusty. To learn more about the chiropractic services we offer, head to our services page.
