How To Stop Back Pain From PMS or Menstrual Cycles

Many women have found that symptoms such as back pain and cramping can be limited or alleviated with chiropractic care. It is important that nutrients and oxygen are allowed to make it where they are needed during this time to help alleviate painful spasms that can cause cramping or other pain. Chiropractic care can help ensure proper blood flow and nerve-muscle control. This can help you stop back pain related to Menstrual Cycles or PMS.

Can Chiropractic Care Help Alleviate Pain Associated with Menstrual Cycles?

The short answer: Yes!

Menstral Cycle Pain Can Be Alleviated with Chiropractic CareEach month, women experience discomfort and pain as a result of the menstrual cycle. During the menstrual cycle, the inner lining of the uterus is released, triggering the bleeding stage of the menstrual cycle. This typically lasts about 3 days, but can also last longer.

If a woman experiences physical pain and cramps during the menstrual cycle, she is diagnosed with dysmenorrhea. It is estimated that up to 90% of all young women will experience some form of dysmenorrhea.  It is also estimated that another 75% – 85% of females suffer from various degrees of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).

Most doctors recommend anti-inflammatory or analgesic medications to help ease pain caused by dysmenorrhea and PMS. Over-the-counter medications, like ibuprofen, can reduce symptoms, but your chiropractor would like to help you end the pain more naturally using chiropractic techniques to ease pain.

How To Releive PMS Back Pain

Chiropractic adjustments were created to rid patients of subluxations in the spine. These are areas of vertebral restriction or areas that are positioned incorrectly.  A subluxation located in the areas of the spine where the nerves to the uterus originate, like the thoracolumbar and lumbosacral sections, can disrupt the normal blood flow and nerve supply to this important organ.

Without proper nutrients, oxygen, and coordinated nerve-muscle control, painful spasms can take place in the uterine muscular walls. Getting the spine into proper alignment and allowing the correct movement to take place can help prevent, and even correct, these problems that can perpetuate menstrual pain.
