Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre additionally cares for their accompanying “friends”, microorganisms, and shares tips for how to keep them in a a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress 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 expands 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 modified pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases such as 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 is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted 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 transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, too, 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 decreased activities of daily living, especially in elderly people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Toronto chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Toronto chiropractor that it requires attention!
