Due to the unique physiological makeup of a woman's body, there are health related issues that are unique to them. Pregnancy and its recovery, pain during the menstrual period, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and chronic pelvic pain are four of the most pressing conditions unique to women.
Chiropractic, along with nutrition and fitness, has been shown to lessen the discomfort of the menstrual period and chronic pelvic pain. Now chiropractic is being used to help women who suffer from intense PMS discomfort.
A chiropractic examination and X-ray of a PMS prone woman's spine often shows structural problems where the lumbar nerves supply the ovaries and uterus.
Gentle chiropractic manipulation, especially just prior to the menstrual cycle can help relieve the discomfort of the premenstrual tension syndrome.
