PMS

Several studies have shown that chiropractic care can help decrease many of the symptoms of PMS without the potential side effects of prescription drugs.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is characterized by mood swings, swollen abdomen, headaches, back pain, food cravings, fatigue, irritability or depression in the days before a woman's monthly period. The severity of these symptoms can range from mild to incapacitating and may last from a couple of days to two weeks.

It has been estimated that three of every four menstruating women experience some form of premenstrual syndrome, and it is more likely to trouble women from their late 20s to early 40s. Between 10 to 20 percent of all women experience symptoms that are severe or even disabling.

PMS is thought to be a side effect of hormonal changes during the monthly menstrual cycle and can be made worse by stress, decreased serotonin levels in the brain and subluxations in the low back.

Although chiropractic care cannot fix the way your body responds to the hormonal changes that preceed menstruation, several studies have shown that it can help decrease many of the symptoms of PMS without the potential side effects of prescription drugs. Since the nerves that exit the low back are responsible for regulating all of the tissues in the lower abdomen, any pressure or irritation that can be alleviated through chiropractic care can be helpful.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Stern and his team for over three years due to traumatic injuries I suffered from a car ejection. I lived with debilitating chronic pain for years with little to no relief until I began a treatment plan with Dr. Stern in 2012. I have seen multiple chiropractors (in three different states) and I have yet to find any that compare to Moulds and Stern! I now reside in California and continue to make frequent trips to Florida for chiropractic care. They have played a massive part in my healing and recovery process and I am forever grateful! If you're looking for a knowledgeable team of Doctors and therapists, you will find them at Moulds and Stern!!"
