Nausea & Acid Reflux/GERD
Certain gastrointestinal conditions, such as persistent nausea, acid reflux, or GERD, can cause some serious limitations to your daily life.
While physical therapy is typically known for treating musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, it can actually play a key role in promoting strong gastrointestinal health, as well.
One factor of physical therapy that can help combat issues with the GI tract is targeted exercise. Exercise plays a key role in making sure your internal functions are operating properly – and when everything is working smoothly internally, your body is also able to perform well externally.
