Gut Issues/Health

Hand heart on stomachYour digestive system affects every aspect of your health. Even when patients come in for another condition, we look at the gut to see if that could be contributing to the problem. At Morris Spine & Sport, we help you improve your digestive health with a personalized plan of care.

Your microbiome is the unique array of bacteria that lives in your intestinal tract. You also have separate microbiomes in your lungs, brain, and sinuses. It’s essential to maintain more good bacteria than bad ones.

Unhealthy bacteria can cause inflammation and other symptoms when they become overpopulated.

Finding the Cause of Imbalances

We start by identifying any imbalance and figuring out what’s causing it. Dr. Case will listen carefully to understand the particulars of your story so we can build a plan of care that works for you. We’ll also do a thorough history to check for past issues like bloating, celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, or Crohn’s disease.

If you’ve taken antibiotics recently, they may have temporarily killed your good bacteria. Such things as changing geographic locations can also affect your digestion. Your entire microbiome is oriented around the particular type of foods, farming methods, and processing methods available in your area. It takes time for your system to adapt to the food sources of a new region.

Thorough Testing and Customized Care

Leaky Gut


Dr. Case may use food tests or elimination diets to identify any foods that could be causing you distress. Our approach to care is always customized to you. Two people reporting the same symptoms may have different root causes and may respond differently to care.

One of our goals is to help you decrease inflammation. Inflammation can come from a variety of sources, including food, bugs, toxins, stress, and hormones. We’ll help you get inflammation under control so you’re less likely to develop chronic conditions.

We offer this service both in person and virtually. We can ship testing and supplements to any location, from California to Canada.
