Ileocecal Valve

Treatment For Ileocecal Valve Syndrome At Cumming Chiropractic Center

You may automatically associate chiropractic care with treatment for a personal injury, auto accident injury, or chronic pain conditions such as arthritis. However, did you know that this form of care can also correct internal disorders, including problems with the digestive system? Here at Cumming Chiropractic Center in Winchester, VA, we know how to treat an intestinal condition known as ileocecal valve syndrome, or ICV. If you're showing certain telltale symptoms of this problem, we're your source for non-surgical relief.


What Is Ileocecal Valve Syndrome?

The ileocecal valve is a valve that controls the movement of waste materials from the small intestine into the large intestine, which is an essential task for normal, healthy digestion and elimination. The opening and closing of the valve is regulated by nerve impulses. In some cases, the valve may either stay open all the time or become stuck in a closed position. As you might imagine, either state can wreak havoc on your well-being. If the valve remains open, toxic waste may back up into the small intestine. If it gets stuck shut, that waste cannot exit the small intestine, so it just keeps polluting the body. Common signs of an ileocecal valve problem include:

  • Constipation or other bowel issues
  • Dark rings under the eyes
  • Sluggishness or fatigue
  • Pain in the shoulder, low back, or chest
  • Nausea
  • Sinus or flu-like symptoms
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

Non-Surgical Corrections from Our Chiropractor in Cumming, GA

Our chiropractor in Cumming, GA, can discover and correct the underlying cause of your ICV.

We can even provide nutritional and lifestyle guidance to help you avoid emotional stress and digestive inflammation.
