Premenstrual syndrome is a syndrome that occurs in many women from 2 to 10 days before the onset of menstruation. It is characterized by symptoms such as: mood swings, swollen abdomen, headaches, back pain, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and/or depression.

When a spinal misalignment occurs, it tends to compress the nerves that exit from that particular area of the spine, affecting the organs and systems that those nerves control. When those nerves can’t function properly, there are usually consequences for the part of the body under the control of those nerves. There have been numerous studies that have been conducted to determine the impact of chiropractic care on PMS symptoms. Many women experience fewer headaches, cramps, bloating, fatigue, etc. after being adjusted by a chiropractor. Adding proper nutrition/supplementation can make a positive difference as well, in helping to balance the body to reduce symptoms, as well as gentle stretches and exercises.
