PMS

Several studies have shown that chiropractic care can help decrease many of the symptoms of PMS without the potential side effects of prescription drugs.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is characterized by mood swings, swollen abdomen, headaches, back pain, food cravings, fatigue, irritability or depression in the days before a woman's monthly period. The severity of these symptoms can range from mild to incapacitating and may last from a couple of days to two weeks.

It has been estimated that three of every four menstruating women experience some form of premenstrual syndrome, and it is more likely to trouble women from their late 20s to early 40s. Between 10 to 20 percent of all women experience symptoms that are severe or even disabling.

PMS is thought to be a side effect of hormonal changes during the monthly menstrual cycle and can be made worse by stress, decreased serotonin levels in the brain and subluxations in the low back.

Although chiropractic care cannot fix the way your body responds to the hormonal changes that preceed menstruation, several studies have shown that it can help decrease many of the symptoms of PMS without the potential side effects of prescription drugs. Since the nerves that exit the low back are responsible for regulating all of the tissues in the lower abdomen, any pressure or irritation that can be alleviated through chiropractic care can be helpful.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I visited Dr. Huffman for back pain. After an initial exam and x-rays I was told that I needed to see my family doctor to have a lump on my spine examined. After the biopsy was done, the results indicated I had cancer (multiple myeloma). Not only has Dr. Huffman helped me walk without a cane again, he also found evidence of cancer, allowing me to be treated.""

  • "After experiencing daily back pain with radiation down my left leg and also experiencing numbness and tingling of that leg; I was delighted when after only one treatment I had amazing relief. I've had no numbness or tingling since that time. The back is a work in progress."
