GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it influences the immune system and inflammation that many times precedes bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria influenced pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now modifications of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen in other human diseases, also, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases associated with reduced activities of daily living, especially in elderly people. Recent analyses found the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Tarrytown chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a everyday basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Tarrytown chiropractor that it requires attention!
