PMS Premenstrual SyndromeIt’s not all in your head! If there’s evidence of nerve compromise to your reproductive organs, chiropractic care may help.
Estimates suggest that up to 90% of women suffer from some form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) with 10 -20% experiencing severe or disabling symptoms. If you’re resolved not to give in to menstrual or premenstrual discomfort, and you want a natural solution that avoids drugs, many women turn to chiropractic.
The Lumbar SpineYour nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. The spine, especially in the lower back, can impair nerves that direct and monitor the reproductive and hormonal systems. Women with undetected subluxations can suffer from a wide variety of female health problems including pelvic pain, PMS, incontinence, sexual dysfunctions and even infertility.
The EffectsThree types of effects can result when proper nervous system regulation of the reproductive system is disturbed from the abnormal motion or position of spinal bones.
- Over activity – such as heavy bleeding or severe cramping.
- Under activity – including missed periods or infertility.
- Distorted activity – cells that normally line the uterus, implant elsewhere causing bleeding, pain and reduced fertility.
