IC and Chiropractic Care

A recent study published in the British Journal of Urology identified a possible cause for this medical mystery.

The study stated “an identifiable lumbar nerve root compression appears to cause urological dysfunction consistent with Interstitial Cystitis.” Ten patients with severe Interstitial Cystitis were evaluated. All ten patients had a lateral compression of the L5 nerve root. Could chiropractic be of benefit to these patients? If the patient suffered from a subluxation interfering with the lumbar nerves it may be the cause of the bladder dysfunction.

Divya’s story of finding a solution for her IC.

Although I had my doubts about chiropractic care, I wanted to give it a try. I was already hopeless from failed medical treatments for my IC and on top of it, my back was hurting too. After an X-ray, Dr. Paul told me that I had a subluxation for a very long time and all my symptoms were related. Surprisingly, I actually got some relief after my very first chiropractic adjustment which convinced me to continue adjustments. Dr. Paul also suggested a natural detox solution for everyday use which has become my favorite remedy. Now, I can eat and drink regularly. Within 2-3 weeks, I was completely symptoms free! It’s been 2 months and I don’t have any IC troubles anymore. I am still getting adjusted in order to completely correct my spine and keep it healthy.Testimony by Divya.

Sometimes going the unconventional route gets you better results.
