Chiropractic does not “treat” painful menstrual cramping. However, since reproductive organ function is under direct control of the nervous system and chiropractic works with the nervous system, painful menstrual cramping can resolve with chiropractic care. 1, 2
The first thing we do in our office is we determine if there is nerve disturbance causing or contributing to the painful menstrual cramping. We are able to do this through a thorough history and a state of the art non-invasive nervous system evaluation.
The reason our approach is so successful when compared to other common approaches to dealing with painful menstrual cramping is that we are focused on addressing the causes of the dysmenorrhea. Other common treatments focus on treating the effect (the symptoms) through the use of potentially dangerous over the counter drugs.
Following the history and evaluation, if we can find out we can help we will present a care plan to address your dysmenorrhea.
