Acid reflux

A chronic and widespread issue, acid reflux refers to a condition in which acidic gastric fluid is regurgitated into the esophagus, causing heartburn that can range from mild to severe. One problem commonly believed to cause acid reflux is an impairment of the diaphragm. Manual physical therapy, which we offer at Directions, has been shown to restore mobility of the respiratory diaphragm and improve rib cage movement. When this is achieved, the opening from the esophagus that allows food to pass is able to properly close, preventing acid from traveling back up.
