PMS and Menstrual Cramping
– Dr. BiggsWe challenge you to take the first step and schedule a time to speak with our doctors. It will likely be unlike any doctor visit you have experienced in the past, and it may be the point at which your life will be changed forever.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Chiropractic does not “treat” PMS or painful menstrual cramping. However, since reproductive organ function is under direct control of the nervous system and chiropractic works with the nervous system, painful menstrual cramping can resolve with chiropractic care.
The Lumbar Spine
Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. The spine, especially in the lower back, can impair nerves that direct and monitor the reproductive and hormonal systems. Could undetected vertebral subluxations be involved in other female health issues? More research is needed. However, our experience suggests that this would be fertile ground for more investigation.
We typically see three types of effects which may be symptoms of nervous system dysregulation.
Over activity – such as heavy bleeding or severe cramping.
Under activity – including missed periods or infertility.
Distorted activity – cells that normally line the uterus, implant elsewhere causing bleeding, pain and reduced fertility.
The first thing we do in our office is we determine if there is nerve disturbance causing or contributing to the painful menstrual cramping. We are able to do this through a thorough history and a state of the art non-invasive nervous system evaluation. The reason our approach is so successful when compared to other common approaches to dealing with painful menstrual cramping is that we are focused on addressing the causes of the dysmenorrhea. Other common treatments focus on treating the effect (the symptoms) through the use of potentially dangerous over the counter drugs. Following the history and evaluation, if we can find out we can help we will present a care plan to address your dysmenorrhea.
Some people choose to continue with chiropractic care as a lifestyle choice much in the way that they continue to exercise, eat healthy, and brush their teeth. They know that the health of their body as a whole is tied to the health of their spine and nervous system and choose to maintain it.
Many conditions result from a poorly functioning nervous system. If this is the cause of your problem, then only chiropractic can address the root cause and allow your body to heal is it should. Below are some conditions that have been traced back to subluxations.
Stay Chiropractic Healthy
Chiropractic enables the weight bearing abilities of the spine and skeletal structure to be optimized. This is critical whether you are lifting a bag of groceries, a toddler, or a heavy barbell.

Having your spine in a balanced and neutral position allows your body to hold itself upright with greater ease and with less resistance against gravity. This enables your muscular system to be more relaxed throughout the day. Coupled with more complete, fluid movement and efficient weight bearing, your body as a whole will enjoy a new level of efficiency.
By removing interfering factors in the nervous system, it is able to heal your body more efficiently and effectively from a cellular level.
Your body is constantly adapting to internal and external environmental factors. Your nervous system controls this adaptation. By improving nervous system function, adaptability also improves which keeps your body in a healthier state no matter what it encounters.
