Getting Help for PMS and Menopause at Our Rockefeller Health & Medical
As a woman dealing with menopause or the symptoms of PMS, it is not easy to get by without pain, hot flashes and other symptoms impacting your daily life. The good news is that our Midtown chiropractor can help you get control of your symptoms and live a life with fewer symptoms that impact you on a daily basis.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Menopause or PMS?
Chiropractic care provides a natural, safe alternative to the traditional medications used to treat menopause or PMS. Did you know that there are 150 recorded symptoms of PMS? Menopause has many of these same symptoms as well. They include symptoms such as:
- Breast tenderness
- Back pain
- Weight gain
There are some good reasons for these symptoms. Lowered levels of serotonin exist in the brain at the time of menopause or when PMS occurs. This can lead to mood swings or irritability. High levels of estrogen cause fatigue, nervousness and irritability, too. When progesterone and estrogen aren't balanced, there's a potential for fatigue, trouble with blood sugar, cravings for sweets or certain foods, and other disruptive symptoms.
What Treatment Options Are There At Our Hell's Kitchen Chiropractor?
While a chiropractor may not be the first medical provider you think of for treating menopause or PMS, the reality is that there are many natural and alternative methods to relieve pain and help the body cope through times of stress. Some of the treatments offered at our office include:
- Chiropractic adjustments and care
- Physical therapy
- Medical massage therapy
- Sports medicine
Each of these treatments can help you in different ways, from helping clear the lymph and promote drainage to aligning the spine for better communication and circulation.
How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Help With PMS or Menopause?
These treatments help because of how proper alignment affects the lymph, parasympathetic and sympathetic systems. These systems control hormone regulation. Proper regulation reduces the risk of headaches, cramping, cravings, bloating and other issues. In particular, our chiropractor will look at the L2 and L3 discs, which are directly in alignment with these systems.
