Questions for Chiropractors About Digestive Health

As we come to a close on our month dedicated to discussing digestive health, let’s turn the tables, well at least a little bit 😊 Here are some of the questions – and insights – that chiropractors are asked about the digestive system. How many relate to you?

Understanding the Chiropractic Approach:

  • Do you believe chiropractic care can help with my specific digestive issues (mention your symptoms)?
  • How can chiropractic adjustments improve the function of my digestive system?
  • What research is available on the effectiveness of chiropractic care for digestive health?

Treatment Plan and Expectations:

  • If chiropractic care is appropriate for me, what would a typical treatment plan look like?
  • How many adjustments might I need, and how often?
  • Are there any lifestyle changes you recommend alongside chiropractic care to improve my digestion?
  • What are the potential benefits of chiropractic adjustments for digestive health?

Comparison to Other Treatments:

  • When would you recommend seeking medical attention from a gastroenterologist?
  • Can chiropractic care work alongside other treatments I’m receiving for my digestive issues?

It’s also important to be upfront about your medical history and any medications you’re taking. This will help the chiropractor determine how chiropractic care could best support your health.


  • Be prepared to describe your digestive symptoms in detail, including frequency, severity, and duration.
  • Ask if the chiropractor has experience treating patients with similar digestive issues.

By asking these questions, you can gain a better understanding of how chiropractic care might fit into your overall digestive health plan. Remember, chiropractic care is one approach to wellness and it’s important to note that everyone’s digestive system is different. What works for one person may be different for another.
