Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is characterized by many irritations  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 10-20% 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.

Let us help you regulate the way your body responds to the hormonal changes that precede menstruation, several studies have shown that chiropractic or acupuncture can help decrease many of the symptoms of PMS without the potential side effects of prescription drugs.
