Living with Acid Reflux is not only painful, but dangerous. Caused by acid flowing from your stomach back into your esophagus, it actually burns the lining of your esophagus causing tissue damage and pain. If you are experiencing heartburn or regurgitation more than twice a week you may have a condition that needs to be monitored and treated medically to prevent further health problems. The good news is that this condition is treatable!
It's very important that you seek acid reflux treatment quickly because the longer you wait to take care of it, the longer it will take to heal. And even more concerning, is that if left untreated it can cause esophageal cancer. Contact us for further information or to make an appointment at our office in Sioux Falls, SD.
"If we can determine what the cause of acid reflux is; whether that's stress, allergy, dietary management or a Hiertel hernia, we can potentially eliminate the issue or manage it." Treatment doesn't offer a quick fix however. He cautions, "It's very important that you seek treatment quickly because the longer you wait to take care of it, the longer it will take to heal. If you live with this for six months, you can expect it to take at least six months to heal."
