Lesson Plan

The gut-joint connection is one of the most hotly debated topics in manual therapy today. Research surrounding these connections has experienced significant growth recently in incidence, assessment, and recovery.

In chiropractic care, we see many patients with joint disorders. Some of our most common musculoskeletal conditions have an autoimmune component to their etiology and may account for their relentless progression and difficulty in treatment. The role of dietary and gut-related pathogens as triggers or exacerbators of joint disorders has been defined. The gut-joint axis is real. Gut-related antigens from bacteria, oral pathogens, and food proteins can play a role in multiple joint disorders, including joint tissue inflammation, tissue autoimmunity, and tissue degeneration. Thus, the importance of intestinal barrier health should be emphasized more. Gut barrier integrity testing, autoantibody assessments, identification of environmental triggers, and intestinal barrier healing and wellness protocols will be presented.

Join Dr. Silverman as he reviews the specific nutrients that can be used to modulate the expression of inflammation and share insight into the prophylactic use of nutrition to support joint integrity and maintain healthy motion. In this incisive 1-hour presentation, you will gain insight into a comprehensive methodology that incorporates proven protocols into a clinically valuable system—one you can apply to your practice immediately.

Learning Objectives:

  • Connect gut – immune system – joints for better management of chronic joint disorders
  • Identify key gut-related triggers of joint disorders
  • Describe the overall role of gut dysbiosis and increased intestinal permeability in the pathogenesis of spinal disorders.
  • Integrate nutritional protocols for the microbiota-gut-spine connection.
