Improve Intestinal Health with Pelvic Floor Therapy in Cranford

Gas formation, indigestion, chronic constipation, stomach bloating, and chronic diarrhea: these are all digestive disorder symptoms that normally fall under the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) umbrella. While It is common for physicians to prescribe medication for IBS without looking for the root cause, the latest research is demonstrating a direct correlation, not only between GI function and motility of the gut, but also healthy function of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and pelvic floor.

The reasons behind this connection become clear when you understand that the TMJ, the diaphragm, and the pelvic floor are all created from the same embryologic tissue so if any one of these parts of the body is tight, the others may follow. Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists understand the anatomy of these areas and how they affect each other, making them one of the best medical practitioners a patient can see for true gastrointestinal relief.

At ProTouch Physical Therapy, its team is trained to treat GI issues under The Barral Institute using an effective technique called Visceral Mobilization (VM), otherwise known as Visceral Manipulation. VM mobilizes the stomach, liver, intestines, and the colon. The results are astounding: lowering the chances of bacterial overgrowth, inflammation, and bloating while increasing digestive assets and nutrition into the body.
