Lets Talk about poop

At any age, constipation is not pleasant. We see this every day in the clinic and it effect the very young to the very old and everyone in-between so it is not something to be shy about. There are people who come to us solely so they can keep their movements regular! Remember it is all about the nervous system being free of interference so that every organ system can work at 100%. We love the nervous system here at Healthmax Chiropractic of Hudson! Here are some basics on constipation:

• Passing fewer than three stools a week
• Having lumpy or hard stools
• Straining to have bowel movements
• Feeling as though you can’t completely empty the stool from your rectum.
• Pinched nerves going to the bowels not allowing 100% function
• Poor nutrition – Typical american diet
• High stress
• Waste or stool moves too slowly through the digestive tract, causing it to become hard and dry

Risk Factors
