When I first heard about chiropractic care, I had plenty of reservations about “how great” it claimed to be. I mean, could these simple ergonomic adjustments really cure just about all that ails you?
One condition called dysmenorrhea is frequently seen in women of childbearing age. Primary dysmenorrhea is classified by painful menstruation that lacks a “pathologic condition of the pelvic organs.” Despite the high prevalence of dysmenorrhea in women today, the cause is still pretty unknown. However, it is understood that the uterus and other neighboring pelvic organs receive their sympathetic innervation from the thoracolumbar junction; with this in mind, it isn’t unreasonable to think the somatovisceral reflex caused from spinal dyskynesia in this area could potentially lead to the functional deterioration witnessed in the uterus, culminating in dysmenorrhea diagnoses for many such patients.
Chiropractors have claimed for years that spinal manipulation therapy administered to patients’ thoracolumbar junction could help relieve said patients’ dysmenorrhea symptoms. A study was undertaken to evaluate these beliefs from a scientific perspective, and it found that such claims were well-grounded: the efficacy of chiropractic care in regards to reducing the somatovisceral reflexes caused by spinal dyskinesia at the thoracolumbar junction, which can lead to dysmenorrheic symptoms when unchecked, was substantial. Still, further bodies of research are needed to concur with or deny these conclusions of chiropractic care’s effectiveness.
