At the top of the stomach is a valve called the esophageal sphincter. If the valve doesn't function properly it allows stomach acid into the esophagus/throat causing burning. The valve can be adjusted mechanically, from the exterior using a very gentle, quick force placed just under the breast bone. This often brings quick and long-lasting relief so patients can reduce or eliminate medication. This adjustment is contraindicated for those diagnosed with Barrett’s Esophagus due to chronic acid exposure. For more information, please request a complimentary consultation.
