Premenstrual Syndrome, or as it is better known, PMS, is a serious condition that is more than just a bad mood. It can include bothersome symptoms such as bloating, aches and pains, breast tenderness, fatigue, headaches, cramps, anxiety and irritability. Unfortunately up to 40% of premenopausal women experience these symptoms enough to report it is a disruption to their lives. This means that the symptoms of PMS are negatively affecting relationships, work attendance, productivity, and more.
The most natural and simple solutions to these problems is regular chiropractic care! The nerves in the low back go to the reproductive organs and help regulate the release of hormones the direct cause of these pesky symptoms. If you or someone you knows suffers from PMS, let them know that chiropractic can help!
