I visited my gI doc today and he was perplexed by the fact that I still continue to suffer from reflux after the TIF procedure. Anyways we talked for a bit and I mentioned to him about a back injury I had that happened a few weeks before I started having reflux. I was wondering if anyone else has heard of back/neck injuries leading to gerd? I was thinking about seeing a chiropractor for a few months to see if it helps. The reason I started thinking of all this is because I recently read through a post on healthboards by triciar, but triciar said

"To make a very long story short, I found out that I have a disc in my neck at C5 that is pressing on my spinal nerve. When I started physical therapy for this with cervical traction, by belching got drastically decreased and frequent hiccups began to be less frequent. I believe the phrenic stomach nerve was being compressed as well and it is causing my stomach to be twitchy"

here it is.

Heres an article I read about it though.

what do you think?

it is possible. Because a serious spinal injury could cause gut to stop functioning. After all, all signaling to organs are conducted by nerves in the spine. I don't think your back injury is that serious. But you can try chiropractic to see if it helps. It did help me!

That's great to hear! I'm going to make an appointment and start going soon. Either way it probably will benefit my body one way or another.
