Chiropractic For Women

Chiropractic for gynecological conditions?

The relationship between the spinal column, reproductive (urogenital) system, nervous system, endocrine (hormonal) system and overall health is extensive.

Menstrual and Premenstrual Problems

For over a hundred years, many women who have suffered from a wide variety of pelvic and gynecological conditions - including pain, PMS, bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunctions - have discovered the natural benefits of chiropractic.


Over half of the hysterectomies performed each year in the U.S. may be unnecessary.  Furthermore, after surgery, many women experience depression; loss of stamina: loss of sex drive and decreased sexual response; urinary incontinence; bowel problems; icy feet and toes; diminished sensation from the waist down; bone and joint pain; memory loss and other problems.  Few doctors warn their patients about the too-common aftereffects of hysterectomy.


Menopause is a normal physiological state, but some doctors consider it a disease.  Because of this attitude, women are often subjected to drug therapies - such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) - that may have dangerous side effects, including breast cancer and heart problems.  It would thus be far better to first explore safer, more natural healing approaches when dealing with the symptoms of menopause.
