Constipation in Denver CO

dizzyHow Does This Happen?

Medications are a frequent cause of constipation. The following drugs all decrease the passage of food through the bowel: Codeine (Tylenol 3), Oxycodone (Percocet), Hydro morphine (Dilaudid), Antidepressants (Amitriptyline and Tofranil), Anticonvulsants (Phenytoin, Dilantin, and Tegretol) and Calcium channel blockers (Cardizem, Nifedipine, and Procardia).

Not listening to your body or suppressing the urge to defecate, can also lead to constipation.

Diet is an important factor as well. Lack of fiber, healthy oils and fats, and lack of water in the diet all lead to irregularity.

What Can I do To Help Myself?

Psyllium hulls can provide cleansing relief to the colon. When taken with lots of water they provide extra bulk to stimulate regularity.

Prunes, prune juice, healthy oils in the diet, regular exercise, salads and fruits all contribute to a healthy bowel habitus.

It’s Still Bothering Me, Now What?

The large intestine is controlled by the nervous system that comes from your spine. Without proper nerve supply you may suffer from constipation.

Our care provides a safe, gentle way to increase nerve supply and allow for regular function of the organs of elimination.

"Dr. V is kind and seems to genuinely care about his patients. The staff members are very helpful and make the experience welcoming. I’m new to chiropractic care, but so far feel hopeful about getting better without medications or invasive interventions."

"I love Dr. V and his staff, they are caring. When I started care I couldn’t lay flat, get up without help, or walk standing up straight. Now I feel WONDERFUL. I can do all the things I used to do. THANK YOU DR. V!"
