So many women suffer from PMS (Premenstrual Symptoms). The question is: do they have to suffer, and is there another solution besides taking a pill to mask the symptoms?

Common symptoms of PMS include bloating, headaches, backaches, migraine, breast tenderness, cramps, nausea and weight gain. Many women think that this is “normal” and there isn’t anything they can do. In reality, the normal state of your body is balance, harmony, and ease. Women don’t have to suffer with pain and symptoms every month!

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics has shown that women who have PMS symptoms experience a significant amount more muscle tenderness and weakness in their lower back. The report concluded that a significantly high incidence of spinal dysfunction exists in women who experience PMS symptoms compared to those who do not experience PMS symptoms. This suggests spinal dysfunction could be a causative factor of PMS, and that chiropractic care could be an excellent therapy for those who suffer with PMS. Chiropractors and their patients often report a decline in PMS symptoms like bloating, low energy, back pain, and cramping.

Your nervous system is connected to the brain and is called the Master System in the body because it coordinates and controls everything in your body. The nervous system runs through the spinal cord and then out to the organs and other parts of the body. If your spinal cord is not aligned properly, you will not have proper function to parts of your body. This could lead to symptoms like PMS.

By correcting the posture to regain proper function of the nervous system, you are allowing the energy to flow properly from the brain to the reproductive system. Being fully connected like this has the ability to eliminate PMS symptoms.
