The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite influential in the health status of our bodies, notably as we grow, age and have pain. Chiropractic Solutions takes care of young and old San Jose chiropractic patients alike. Chiropractic Solutions also cares for their add-on “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that many times leads to bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria influenced pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota discrepancies can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and set up options for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, also, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases linked to decreased activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) San Jose chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your San Jose chiropractor that it needs attention!
