 You have been diagnosed with Hiatal Hernia. So what is that. When an organ has moved into a spot it doesn’t belong, it’s called a hernia. The hiatus is an opening in the diaphragm.  This muscular wall separates the chest cavity from the abdomen. The esophagus goes through the hiatus to the stomach. When part of the stomach bulges up into the chest cavity through this hiatus it is called a hiatal hernia.

What you might not know is that it can be treated by a Chiropractor who is familiar with soft tissue adjusting. Since the hiatal hernia is a stomach malposition. All it takes it an adjustment of the soft tissue to bring the stomach out of the hiatal hernia position. Then the stomach can return to normal activity.

If you are suffering from hiatal hernia and would like to see a Chiropractor who performs this maneuver, please call ahead of time and ask if the Chiropractor can do this. Not all Chiropractors practice soft tissue adjusting.
