GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in support that it influences the immune system and inflammation that many times leads to bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria affected pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota discrepancies can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish choices for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences 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 decreased activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses found the significance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Malverne chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Malverne chiropractor that it requires attention!
