GI Discomfort

Suffering from abdominal pain, reflux, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome or stomach cramps can be a significant source of distress. Osteopathic manipulation can balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to normalize the whole gut.

Stomach Ache


We start with a thorough history and physical examination of not only structural challenges, but also stool burden, abdominal tenderness, and other symptoms that can affect your wellness. Important for the doctor to know is your GI history including endoscopy or colonoscopy, prior workup and results, medical problems, GI specific and other medications, surgical history, and family history of GI or other issues. It would be helpful to keep a food diary to help identify symptom triggers.


A range of techniques is used, including abdominal and spinal manipulation to provide a unique treatment plan just for you based on a protocol and other physical findings. Whether you’re a first-time patient or a long-time client, the goal is to achieve optimal gut motility through balancing of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Understand that healing takes time and regular visits may be necessary.
