Menstrual Pain vs Chiropractic
The infamous menstrual cycle that is a love / hate relationship. Many females come into the office with secondary complaints of bloating, cramping, and general pelvic pain. These type of symptoms for your menstrual cycle do not have to be apparent. While many medical doctors will suggest to take analgesic drugs or some sort of inflammatory drug to mask your symptoms and put toxins in your body, why not address the actual CAUSE. Yes, there is evidence out there that the pain will be masked and symptoms masked while taking the inflammatory drugs, however you are still putting toxins into your body and covering up the cause!
What can a chiropractor do for me? Menstrual pain and I don’t have to take drugs? Chiropractic care can help? The nerves that control your female reproductive organs to allow you to experience your menstrual cycle are located at the bottom of your spinal column. If there is a subluxation present you can experience signs and symptoms such as bloating, cramping, and pelvic pain during your menstrual cycles. The subluxation is what chiropractors find and correct. The subluxation decreases your nerve supply to your female reproductive organs, thus creating your sings and symptoms. Many females will come into the office for generic low back pain and do not realize that the pain is associated with their irregular menstrual cycles as well.
Pain is and will always be the last thing to show up (unless you get hit by a truck, plane, steamroller…you get the picture). Many females patients after the course of adjustments will tell us that their signs and symptoms usually associated with their menstrual cycle are absent! Specific chiropractic adjustments aimed at your cause and not chasing your symptoms can establish clear 100% communication to your female reproductive organs. So, when the next menstrual cycle comes around your body is clear of interference and ready to rock!
