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.

5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
