NCLC 2019: 21st Century Approach to Musculoskeletal Conditions: The Gut-Joint Connection

Event date: 1/18/2019 11:00 AM - 11:55 AM Export event

In chiropractic care, we see many patients with joint disorders.  Some of our most common musculoskeletal conditions have an autoimmune component to their etiology and may account for their relentless progression and difficulty in treatment.  The role of dietary and gut-related pathogens as triggers or exacerbators of joint disorders has been defined.  The gut-joint axis is real.  Gut-related antigens from bacteria, oral pathogens and food proteins can play a role in multiple joint disorders, including joint tissue inflammation, tissue autoimmunity and tissue degeneration. If detected in the early, subclinical, stages of autoimmunity, protocols can be implemented to stop the autoimmune process and potentially prevent the onset of disease.  Through inflammation, cross-reactivity and covalent binding, gut-related antigens can contribute to joint disorders.  When the gut barrier is broken these potential triggers of joint disorders can more easily ignite or fuel the autoimmune pathogenesis.  Thus, the importance of intestinal barrier health cannot be emphasized enough.  This presentation will cover gut barrier integrity testing, autoantibody assessments, identification of environmental triggers and intestinal barrier healing and wellness protocols.
