Chiropractic Treatment For Menopause and PMS Relief
If you feel unnaturally angered when a colleague accidentally eats your lunch, or if you easily start sobbing while watching the drabbest things on T.V, you’re probably experiencing symptoms of PMS.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) and menopause are natural processes every woman experiences. Supposed to go over smoothly, there can be several reasons behind having painful PMS or stressful menopause.
To seek relief, more and more women are now turning toward natural and drug-free methods. One such natural treatment is chiropractic care.
What Are Common PMS Symptoms?
The intensity of this syndrome varies from woman to woman and affects not only the body, but the mind too. There are over 150 identified symptoms of PMS. The most common ones women experience includes:
- Back pain
- Leg pain
- Breast tenderness
- Mood swings
What Are The Symptoms of Menopause?
The onset of menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive cycle. This transitional period begins with ‘perimenopause’.
This preliminary stage can start several years before a woman has her last menstruation. Menopause usually occurs when a woman reaches her late 40s or early 50s. Some of the most common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are:
- Irregular periods
- Mood changes
- Slowed metabolism
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes
- Sleep problems
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Thinning hair
- Dry skin
Alleviate These Symptoms With Chiropractic Care
Choosing chiropractic therapy is a drug-free approach to treat symptoms of both PMS and menopause.
According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, women undergoing PMS symptoms have a higher frequency of spinal dysfunction. Chiropractors are trained in performing adjustments in the sacrum and lumbar spine. These vertebrae affect the sympathetic nervous systems which work to control the body’s natural hormone regulation mechanism.
Chiropractors also work to align the spine to remove any pressure that might be interfering with the Central Nervous System. This allows the spine to function effectively to optimize other functions of the body.
