For as long as I can remember I have had very painful periods. They would get so bad that I would be bedridden for several days each month. I had a bad reaction to hormonal birth control so I thought I would just have to suffer forever with the pain, or at least until menopause. This all changed when I read an article online about chiropractic care for menstrual issues. After seeing this I found a Peoria chiropractor who advertised that they could help with this sort of thing. I made an appointment for the week before my cycle was supposed to start.

I was cautiously optimistic as I went in for my appointment. I was really hoping that it would work for my issues but I did not want to put too much stock in it, lest I end up disappointed. I went in and the doctor asked me about my problems and what he could do for me. He went to work on me and it wasn’t an unpleasant sensation. I was able to get through it without a problem and went home and relaxed for the rest of the day. As I lay in bed that night I realized I felt more relaxed than I’d felt in years.

I went home and waited a week for my cycle to start and was delighted to find out that the treatment had worked. I was in much less pain and was even able to resume some of my usual daily activities because I wasn’t bedridden for several days per month. Now I go to the chiropractor at least once a month and I can feel it when my body needs to be readjusted. I’m so glad I was able to solve this without drugs and most of all I am ecstatic that I’m in hardly any pain anymore.
