Brief description of problem
The gastrointestinal (or GI) system is the digestive system. Specifically, it’s the stomach (the “gastro” part of that term) and the intestines. It’s a rugged enough system in its own way, and works constantly to provide your body with nutrients as well as immune support and important hormones. But when something goes wrong, it can become inflamed, very painful and even affect hormone levels leaving you with depression or increased anxiety. Problems arising include excess acidity, acid reflux, ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Our current knowledge tells us there is no single cause between the two. Pain experienced in the back can be triggered by a condition (painful or not) in the digestive system. The reverse can happen: problems originating in the back can create painful GI inflammation. The third alternative is that some common ailment elsewhere in the body can cause both digestive and back pains. GI inflammation. This relationship makes more sense when we understand that the nerve supply for our GI can be traced back to specific levels of our spine. When you affect the spine, you affect the function of your organs causing inflammation and discomfort.
