A new study shows that chiropractic can be an effective treatment for dysmenorreah, or pain associated with the menstrual cycle. The study followed 16 women with dysmenorreah through a 4-week trial of chiropractic care. The women had significant improvements in both low back pain and abdominal pain.

This study demonstrates how chiropractic adjustments can change pain and function in areas beyond the spine, and beyond what is traditionally thought to be beyond the "musculoskeletal system".

In addition to having your spine checked by a chiropractor, it is important to look into dietary changes and amino acid therapy if you suffer from dysmenorrhea. I have many patients who experience significant relief using 5-HTP and high dose fish oil. The 5-HTP can be converted to serotonin by your brain to inhibit pain, and the omega-3's in the fish oil have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
