GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases associated with 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 experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota varied 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 large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota differences can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and establish choices for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are present in other human diseases, too, 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 linked to decreased activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses revealed the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Oxford chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a everyday basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Oxford chiropractor that it requires attention!
