GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged 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 expands in evidence that it stimulates the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases associated with 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 who had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases such as 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 is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased 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 seen 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 associated with reduced activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses revealed the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Manchester chiropractic patients may not often contemplate their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Manchester chiropractor that it requires attention!
