Millions of women are affected every month from symptoms of PMS—premenstrual syndrome—and other related menstrual health issues. Many women believe it’s normal to live with the pain, bloating, nausea, and headaches that can accompany PMS, which is unfortunate. Women do not have to accept that stress, discomfort, and inability to function comfortably are a natural part of life. There are several ways to treat these symptoms, one of which is through a preventative wellness based approach using Chiropractic care.
Spinal nerves affect all parts of the body, including those responsible for the menstrual cycle and menopause. Women who are affected by PMS may have subluxations or dysfunction in the nerves of the lower back or lumbar spine. The lumbar nerves support the uterus and ovaries and when those nerves are irritated, the pain and discomfort are felt in the female reproductive organs.
Doctors of chiropractic help maintain a healthy relationship between nerves and the female reproductive organs by opening the nerve supply from the spine. Chiropractors correct the vertebral subluxations that can lead to reduced function and symptoms of PMS. Some of the problems experienced during PMS and menopause can even be eliminated with regular visits to a chiropractor.
For years, women have been using over-the-counter medication to alleviate the symptoms and ease the pain endured during PMS and menopause. Receiving chiropractic spinal adjustments can decrease these symptoms using a healthy, natural, and holistic approach.
