Paramus Gut Health is Important at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center

We are one big, happy family. Who are “we”? Our bodies and the billions of microorganisms living with us in harmony…most of the time! The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite important to the health status of our bodies, especially as we grow, age and feel pain. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center cares for younger and older Paramus chiropractic patients likewise. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center also cares for their accompanying “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in evidence that it influences the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria affected pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota differences can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and set up options for the patients to modify their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen in other human diseases, also, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases associated with reduced activities of daily living, especially in elderly people. Recent analyses discovered the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Paramus chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Paramus chiropractor that it requires attention!
