Chiropractic and Irregular Menses

Keep in mind that chiropractors do not claim to treat conditions. We merely seek to remove stress and obstruction to your nervous system function, which is often the root cause of symptoms and dysfunctions. This is why people with a wide array of health problems see restored health and improved function with chiropractic care, because the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the human body.

All females should have a regular menstrual cycle. Any irregularity in this cycle is indicating a loss of function and an imbalance in the system. If females are not having a regular period, they should see a chiropractor to get their body working correctly!

Irregular menses can include too little and too much flow, excessive cramping and PMS symptoms. These are all indicating that the woman's internal environment is not quite right.

Common areas chiropractors find subluxations in the spine for irregularities in menses:

  • C6-T3: Nerve supply to the thyroid gland, responsible for regulating hormone levels throughout the entire body.
  • L1-L3: Nerve supply to the ovaries and uterus. Often found with amenorrhea.
  • Pelvis and sacrum: Can become badly rotated and tilted, changing the entire low back curvature and functionality. Often found with painful menses.
