Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

PMS in Oak Lawn IL

Do you suffer from PMS or (Premenstrual Syndrome) in Oak Lawn IL? Studies are finding that if there are compromised nerves that control your reproductive organs, chiropractic may help!

It is estimated that between 90-95% of women suffer from symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and 15% of women experience debilitating cramps. Over the counter medications and prescription medications can ease the symptoms and birth control can as well but all three of these avenues have side effects that range from headaches, nausea, decreased libido, mood swings and in extreme cases death. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe natural treatment that can improve premenstrual problems and pains for many women.

Common Cause of PMS

We have found that our patients respond best to adjustments to their lumbar region and sacrum. The lumbar plexus and sacral plexus contain nerves that extend to the reproductive organs. If there is a subluxation within these regions, it can cause painful premenstrual symptoms and menstrual cycles. Also, if the pelvis is misaligned that can put added pressure on the reproductive organs exacerbating the symptoms. So misalignment in the sacral and lumbar regions are a common cause of PMS.

Study Results

Chiropractic: The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation published an article about a study that was performed with 11 women that had been experiencing PMS for more than four consecutive months. The subluxations were identified and listed with the Gonstead listing method. All of the women were placed on a monthly office visit treatment plan with more frequent visits while the symptoms were severe. After receiving chiropractic adjustments for four cycles, the women reported a 38.6% decrease in irritability, 40.1% decrease in tension, 70.7% decrease in sexual drive/habit changes and 41.7% decrease in physical symptoms. In some cases all symptoms disappeared after treatment was initiated.
