Menstrual Pain

Columbia Chiropractors Can Provide Menstrual Pain Relief Treatment

Between 75 and 90 percent of women worldwide undergo the discomfort and emotional ups and downs associated with the menstrual cycle. For many, it’s a monthly occurrence that disrupts their ability to enjoy life fully. Thankfully, the team at Compass Chiropractic & Wellness have successfully treated numerous women, providing relief from menstrual pain through chiropractic care.

Relief from Menstrual Cycle Cramps with Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractors employ gentle adjustments to the lower back, along with other natural treatments, to alleviate menstrual pain. Two terms describe the issues women face during their menstrual cycle:

Dysmenorrhea – Physical symptoms such as abdominal cramps and back pain before menstruation.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) – Cramps along with emotional symptoms.

While many women resort to over-the-counter pain relievers, these can have unwanted side effects. Dr. Lee addresses the root causes of menstrual pain by adjusting the vertebrae to release pinched nerves and relax muscles.

Can Chiropractic Care Provide Relief from PMS?

Many nerves that regulate a woman’s reproductive system extend from the lower back vertebrae to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding muscles. These nerves can become pinched due to lower back injuries or long-term posture issues. Our chiropractors can help by realigning the vertebrae and offering natural treatments for lower back injuries. In fact, many women seeking relief from lower back pain found that the following natural treatment methods also eased their menstrual cramps and PMS symptoms:

Chiropractic care – Our chiropractors can alleviate pinched nerves, restoring proper function to the reproductive organs and surrounding tissues.

Therapeutic exercises – Our chiropractors can guide you through exercises and stretches to rehabilitate muscles post-injury, enhance core strength, and promote lumbar posture for long-term relief from PMS and back pain.
