Nausea and Acid Reflux/GERD
Certain gastrointestinal conditions, such as persistent nausea, acid reflux, or GERD, can cause some serious limitations to your daily life.
While physiotherapy 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 physiotherapy 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.

Research shows that physiotherapy treatments not only manage the symptoms of GI conditions, but it can protect and prevent against harm to the GI tract altogether. In fact, people who exercise regularly are at a decreased risk of developing potentially harmful gastrointestinal conditions than those who do not.
Our physiotherapists can also provide you with certain lifestyle changes that can help combat your gastrointestinal issues, such as adopting a more nutritious diet, cutting out certain foods, or losing a certain amount of weight.
