Painful Menstrual Cycles and the Spine

Like every part of the body, female sexual organs require a healthy nerve supply from the spine in order to function properly. It is not coincidental that many women suffering from painful menstrual cycles also experience neck or back pain generally. Often, when women visit a chiropractor for neck or back problems, the beneficial effects on menstrual cramps are a welcome surprise.

Chiropractic care can help ensure that the sexual organ/spinal column relationship is a healthy one. The chiropractic approach has brought relief to many women suffering from painful menstrual cycles. Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxation (a condition in which the spine is misaligned and then interferes with the nervous system and causes a state of reduced health) to reduce pain, bringing both short term relief as well as a permanent solution to this problem.

Spinal realignment can also treat other issues related to reproductive health. Women suffering from a wide variety of hormonal conditions, including menopausal symptoms such as depression, hot flashes, joint and back pain, irritability, headaches, and fatigue, can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
