Hey ladies, we get it. That time of the month can be rough... but it doesn't need to be!
Are you dealing with one or more of the following?
-Super heavy flow
-Very light or even an absent flow
-Painful cramping or bleeding
If you said yes to one or more, then something internally isn't functioning as it should! And although your friends might by experiencing the same thing- common does not mean normal. Especially when it comes to your health and overall well-being.
Chiropractic and PMS
All females should have a regular menstrual cycle. If our endocrine and reproductive systems are functioning properly, then regular menstruation is no big deal. But if they aren't functioning properly, then these pesky irregularities occur.
Most people associate chiropractors with neck and back pain; however the role of a chiropractor far exceeds pain relief. Chiropractors work to detect and correct stress on the nervous system. What does that mean? Your nervous system is the master controller of the human body. It is what controls and orchestrates every other system, including the endocrine (hormones) and reproductive systems mentioned above.
If there is stress on the nerves that innervate that these areas, they are unable to communicate properly and dysfunction occurs. This is where chiropractic comes into play! Adjustments work to remove stress on the nerves so that your body has greater potential to self-heal and regulate itself as it was designed to do.
"I didn't have my cycle for almost 1.5 years and I knew that something was wrong. I saw a few different doctors who tried me on different medications, but each month was no different than the last. I knew that having a family was very important to me in the future. The breaking point was when I was told, 'When you want to have kids, come back to us and we will try you on fertility medications.' That was not the answer I was looking for so I searched for a new route leading me to chiropractic!
The month after I started regularly seeing my chiropractor, my period returned! Due to maintenance chiropractic care, my period has been regular ever since. No cramping, very few hormonal headaches, and no extremely heavy flow like I had experienced before my period ceased. Not to mention the best part- I now have a son and conceived naturally without the need for fertility treatment!"
