Chiropractor and Hiatal Hernia

Hello,

Has anybody gone to a chiropractor to fix their hiatal hernia? I've been reading a lot about this and sounds very promising. Since this is a mechanical problem it is fixable. I forget the exact working, but the stomach is pulled down to fix the hernia. From what I've read, it seems like a fairly simple procedure. There are also some self help books that instruct how to fix this yourself. Very interesting. I always thought having a hiatal hernia was the reason I had acid reflux, but many people with hiatal hernias don't have GERD and people with no hiatal hernia have GERD. Again, very interesting. I believe having the hiatal hernia is causing some of my problems and maybe a few others. If you have a hiatal hernia and haven't done much research about it, you should. There is some good information out there.

Thanks

-Dave

Re: Chiropractor and Hiatal Hernia

Yes, yes, yes....it can be corrected by chiropractic! I was diagnosed in the late 90's with this.

Last December I started seeing a chiropractor/kinseologist. He manually started pushing my hiatel hernia down (it hurt...but it was worth the pain). Within a few adjustments, it finally stayed down.

I even had a Barium done in January and they said I didn't have a hiatel hernia. But the funny thing is now, I didn't have reflux when I had it and now that the hernia is corrected....I have reflux! Can't win lol

Good luck and let me know if it works for you.
