Chiropractic and PMS: How It Can Help

chiropractic and PMS

 

Many women experience symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) regularly each month—symptoms that include bloating, fatigue, volatile emotions and joint or muscle pain, among others. The link between chiropractic and PMS is one that may surprise you. Though some symptoms of PMS may be there to stay, chiropractic care can help mitigate or eliminate some of its effects.

The link between chiropractic and PMS

The nervous system controls every system in the body, and when your spine is not working efficiently, it can affect the nerves that direct and regulate any system—including the reproductive and endocrine (hormonal) systems.

The misalignment of spinal bones can therefore, in regard to PMS, cause heavy bleeding or severe cramping, missed periods or infertility and endometriosis, which can cause bleeding, pain and reduced fertility.

How it can help

Chiropractic care provides an alternative for some women to taking medicine to treat severe PMS symptoms. Spinal adjustments can correct a subluxation, which may be the culprit for symptoms that are more intense than they have to be. Chiropractic care will not stop PMS entirely, but some women who had spinal adjustments leading up to their periods have shown evidence of relief of symptoms.

Functional medicine

In addition, at Advantage Chiropractic Clinic, our own Dr. Brad Adams has extensive training in internal disorders using functional medicine to address issues. Functional medicine takes time to analyze the root cause of symptoms to provide patients with more accurate, individualized treatment. Learn more about what functional medicine can do for you.
