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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My family has went to see Doc for 30 years and thanks to his billing staff we won't be making the drive over any longer. Fedorka is a great doctor but you have to have a staff that will answer questions and return calls. Very disappointed!"

  • "Too bad Ohio doesn’t recognize alternative health physicians because Jeff is so much more than a chiropractor."
    Bruce M. / Facebook
  • "Dr. Fedorko took extra time to help our daughter, his gentleness and understanding and words of encouragement, were a gift. We have both been patients at the office for a few years. They truly treat the mind and body. Emotional tapping and supplements combined can get you through the difficult times. The staff is always helpful.. His new associates are wonderful too."
