Chiropractic Care for Improved Menstrual Health

 

Menstrual health may not be one of the first things you think of when you think of optimal health, but poor menstrual health can lead to dysfunction within the body such as infertility, sexual dysfunction, painful or difficult PMS, or a variety of other health concerns.  For many women, the menstrual cycle is not just an annoying occurrence that happens once a month, but it is also a painful experience that can lead to bloating, cramping, lethargy, and severe back pain.  If your menstrual health has caused dysfunction or pain, there is hope. Traditional methods for improving menstrual health such as medications may improve the feeling of PMS or menstrual health struggles, but they are only a temporary solution and can cause a slew of unwanted side effects.  Regular visits to a Lithia Springs chiropractor, however, treat the root cause of menstrual issues.  Chiropractic care is a natural and safe method for improving both menstrual health and overall wellbeing.

Chiropractic Can Help Manage Menstrual Irregularities

Women face several different types of menstrual health issues.  Premenstrual symptoms (PMS), amenorrhea (lack of a normal period during reproductive years), and dysmenorrhea (painful cramping) are the most common types of menstrual health problems among women today.  While many women may be glad about a lack of menstrual cycle, it is actually a cause for concern as it could be a sign of something more serious going on within the body.  If you experience menstrual irregularities or significant pain, seek care from Dr. Ronnie Bolar of Vital Life Chiropractic to address menstrual health concerns.

Menstrual Health Research

Menstrual cycles do not just cause discomfort, but may also cause back pain, lethargy, bloating, or severe cramps.  The nerve bundles that control your endocrine (hormonal) and reproductive systems are protected by the spine.  Because they work in conjunction with one another, problems such as spinal misalignments (or subluxations) may cause more severe menstrual symptoms during a cycle.  Chiropractic adjustments can relieve symptoms of menstrual cycles, as well as regulate the frequency of menstrual cycles.  Chiropractic care is also a natural, drug-free way to relieve bladder and bowel pain caused by PMS.  Women who experience infertility issues may also benefit from regular chiropractic care as the reproductive system is so closely associated with the spine.

Chiropractic adjustments have been effective in treating issues such as amenorrhea (abnormal lack of a period during reproductive years), premenstrual syndrome, and dysmenorrhea (painful abdominal cramps during a period).  While it is normal to not have a period during pregnancy or when breastfeeding, the lack of a menstrual cycle at any other time can be a sign of more significant health issues.  Studies have shown that spinal health affects overall health.  Lithia Springs chiropractic care is a solution for achieving optimal menstrual health.

Menstrual Health and Chiropractic Care

Many women suffer from different types of menstrual health issues.  Primary amenorrhea occurs when a woman’s cycle does not start during puberty on its own.  Often times, birth control or other medicines are used to achieve menses.  Secondary amenorrhea occurs when women who have previously had regular menstrual cycles stop having a cycle.  A visit to a Lithia Spring chiropractor can correct both primary amenorrhea and secondary amenorrhea.  A 25-year-old woman experienced primary amenorrhea and tension headaches.  At 18 years of age, her doctor prescribed progesterone to synthetically initiate a cycle.  Due to side effects of medication, the woman […]
