GI Motility Programs

Your digestive system is a miracle of muscles, valves, digestive juices and nutrient absorption.

The synchronized, wave-like movement of your digestive system’s muscles, which push food through the various parts of the system, is known as motility. Disturbances of gastrointestinal motility can cause a variety of symptoms, pain or discomfort and a loss of nutrient absorption.
