Here is a discussion of the anatomy of your abdomen, as well as common ailments we treat right here at River Ridge Chiropractic. Most of these conditions can even be treated naturally with very effective results.
Occasionally, clients will report back pain that is actually originating deep within their abdomen. Likewise, given the close proximity of your back and abdomen, as well as shared nerves and muscles, pain in one area can lead to pain in the other. Our office is familiar with all of this and can offer a variety of possible solutions.
Abdominal pain can be caused by a number of common conditions such as: indigestion, constipation, nausea, vomiting, ulcer, gas, pelvic inflammatory disease, muscle pull, sprains and strains of muscles or ligaments, and food intolerance. Other more serious conditions causing abdominal discomfort include, but are not limited to: kidney stones, gall stones, food poisoning, appendix malfunction, liver or spleen digestive malfunctions, hernia, cancer, cysts, broken bones, and endometriosis.
The diagram to the right will help you to see the number of organs involved in digestion. You can see a complete discussion about how digestion works. One or all of these organs could lead to the discomfort of abdominal pain.
