Menstrual Pain

Chiropractic Can Provide Menstrual Pain Relief

75 to 90 percent of women around the world experience the cramps and difficulty with emotional control/regulation associated with the menstrual cycle. For many, it’s a monthly event that negatively impacts their ability to enjoy life. Fortunately, chiropractic has been helpful to many women in this respect at our office.

Relief from Menstrual Cycle Cramps with Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor uses gentle chiropractic care to adjust the lower back along with other recommendations nutritional or otherwise, to provide menstrual pain relief. While many women use over-the-counter analgesics for relief, these can also cause unpleasant side effects. Our doctors treat the root causes of menstrual cycle pain by adjusting the vertebrae to free pinched nerves and relax muscles. There are two types of problems women can experience during their menstrual cycle:


Physical symptoms of abdominal cramps and back pain preceding the period.

Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)

Cramps plus emotional symptoms.

Can My Chiropractor Provide PMS Relief?

Many of the nerves directly responsible for controlling a woman’s reproductive system travel out from the vertebrae in the lower back to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, their supporting muscles and other nearby parts of the body. These nerves can be pinched, either by injury or by long-term posture problems. Our chiropractors can help by correcting misalignments in the vertebrae, providing natural treatment for any lower back injury. In fact, many women who come to see our chiropractors for lower back pain discovered that our treatment protocols resolved their monthly menstrual cycle cramps and difficulties too:

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our chiropractors can relieve pinched nerves so they properly regulate the function of your reproductive organs and their surrounding tissues.

Therapeutic exercises

Our chiropractors can also coach you on how to perform exercises and stretches that can retrain muscles after an injury to improve strength and balance that can support good posture in the lumbar region for lasting PMS and back pain relief.
