As a part of our ongoing discussion around Crohn’s disease, the Chiropractors at AICA Tucker are focusing on the effects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), as well as the type of treatment options that currently exist.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease refers to some conditions that have recurring immune responses and chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.
The first week of December is acknowledged as “national Crohn’s Disease Awareness” week and is meant to bring attention to a condition that affects over 700,000 Americans.
Named after the doctor who identified the disease, Dr. Burrill B. Crohn, Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract.
The most commonly affected age group is between the ages of 15 and 35 years old.
