Your Thyroid and Chiropractic?

The thyroid is part of the endocrine system or hormone producing glands which are responsible for coordinating many of your body’s activities. Thyroid conditions can be present in both men and women although less common in men. The gland can either be overactive or underactive. In either case this dysfunction can be assisted back to normal as Dr. Dustan Mattingly has demonstrated.

Many common symptoms occur in a patient when nerve flow to the thyroid is reduced resulting in poor function of the Thyroid Gland. In hypothyroidism (underactive) this can include fatigue, unexplained weight gain, cold sensitivity, dry skin, and constipation. On the other hand hyperthyroidism often means restlessness, muscle weakness, irritability and trouble sleeping. While those are the most common the list goes on. Of note, hypothyroidism is the most common condition.

With Chiropractic and Pressure Point Therapy Dr. Dusty works to restore normal nerve function allowing the nervous system to regulate this gland to produce the correct amount of hormone which in turn balances out the endocrine system. As the doctor notes in his video presentation a patient may require additional support with nutrition to allow the body to fully heal.

So if you find that you’ve experienced some of the symptoms mentioned be sure to get in touch with the office for an evaluation to find out what approach might suit you best! 314-635-1008
