One issue many women complain to me about is their menstrual cycle. The female menstrual cycle begins when a girl is around 13 or 14 years old and can last 40 years. A typical cycle is between 25-33 days and is critical for normal hormonal balance during reproductive years. Problems with periods can vary, but symptoms may include:
- Dysmenorrhea – heavy or painful cramping during periods
- PMS – mood swings and irritability
- Missed periods or shorter or longer cycles
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Traditional care for female menstrual problems usually starts with a woman’s OB/GYN. They will perform an exam and make recommendations, most often going on birth control or using some sort of hormone therapy. While these methods help many women, it is not always the most holistic or natural approach to female problems.

How We Help With Menstrual Cycle Symptoms In Jackson Township, NJ
Comprehensive Consultation and Exam
To determine what menstrual cycle symptoms you are dealing with, we need to start with a thorough history. Asking specific questions about diet and what symptoms you are experiencing is vital to determine if it’s treatable with chiropractic care. We will primarily focus on the spine and nervous system to determine the location of your subluxations and the origin of your menstrual cycle symptoms.
Chiropractic Care for Menstrual Cycle Symptoms in Jackson Township, NJ
Chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to resolving menstrual cycle problems. We start with a detailed history, discussing medications, nutrition, and stress levels, which can all impact a normal female cycle. We perform a comprehensive examination to see if there are any imbalances in your nervous system.
The nervous system runs through your spine, with the nerves that control the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and reproductive system exiting out of your lumbar spine. Misalignments or subluxations (fixations causing nerve interference) affect the nerve supply to your reproductive cycle, inhibiting normal function and leading to problems with your reproductive cycle.
Our detailed exam includes a structural and postural assessment, range of motion, orthopedic testing, and detailed state-of-the-art digital X-rays taken on-site. Based on this thorough assessment, we create a detailed care plan to correct spinal misalignments, make nutritional recommendations, and suggest supplements to support a regular menstrual cycle.
We use specific chiropractic adjustments to alleviate menstrual cycle pain or discomfort AND maximize normal nerve function so your body can work optimally. Our office also has a Certified Massage Therapist and Doctor of Acupuncture to help facilitate and augment your care. You can make an appointment with them at any time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can chiropractic adjustments affect hormones?
Yes. The spine encases your spinal cord and nerves. The nervous system is the primary power source of all your body’s systems, including your endocrine (hormonal) system. If your spinal bones interfere with normal nerve supply, this may affect the nerves supplying your endocrine system and disrupt hormonal balances.
Can spinal alignment affect fertility?
Yes. If the pelvis is out of normal alignment, this may affect a woman’s ability to conceive or carry a baby to full term. We do not tout that chiropractic will cure infertility, but many women under chiropractic care have experienced pregnancy and childbirth when they were unable to before care.
Can a chiropractor help with irregular periods?
Yes. Many women who start chiropractic care notice their periods are less heavy, with less cramping, and are more on a regular cycle.
