Menstrual Pain

Chiropractic Care Tips for Menstrual Pain Alleviation

Menstrual cramps and discomfort are really a bother to most women. The pain before and during a woman’s period is sometimes unbearable and the fact that it is accompanied by the uncomfortable feelings of mood swings, bloating, fatigue, nausea and more. All these symptoms may be somewhat alleviated by a concoction of pills or medications, which come with a concoction of their very own side effects.
Just in case you weren’t aware, we’re here to show you that there are different options available for alleviating menstrual pain and discomfort, through very natural options, without the use of pills and potions. Chiropractors recommend that you invest in these options before you consider the use of medication to bring you relief.

Chiropractic care and treatment can help. Having regular chiropractic adjustments can help with the nerves that are in the lower back, that are connected to the reproductive organs and the lower digestive track. This helps to soothe lower back pain, period cramps, as well as indigestion and other issues. These adjustments can also help with headaches, tension and insomnia.

  • Light compression, by using a heating pad with a pillow on the area that you are experiencing pain, can help to bring some relief.

  • Warm beverages can help to ease and relax the uncomfortable feelings being experienced in your stomach.

  • Apply warmth, not only in the form of a heating pad, but with things like a warm bath or even a warm blanket. This can help you to relax your body. You can even use some aromatherapy to help with the relaxation as well.

  • Stretch and lie down, because this can help to ease up the pressure on your lower back and give you some more relief.

  • Eat good foods which contain things like protein, fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B1. Cut down on foods containing caffeine and sugar.
