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 was born with hip dysplasia which made my legs uneven. I have dealt with this issue for my whole life. It became worse when I decided to become a surgical nurse and am on my feet all the time at work. I finally decided to see Dr. Floarke when the pain became unbearable. She is a miracle worker!!! After seeing her just a few times, I was able to work my long hours without having to deal with my day to day pain!! She also fixed issues in my shoulder I sustained from playing softball for many years of my life. I recommend Dr. Floarke very highly to anyone who is needing and considering chiropractic and rehabilitation work!!"
