He Helped Alleviate My Pain

Posted by: Jack Russell on: September 20, 2013

Since I was around 20 years old, my menstrual cycles have been pretty hard and painful for me. I was diagnosed with endometriosis, which is a very painful condition that too many women go through. What this meant was I was in pain during my period more so than other women, and it sometimes lasted several days longer than most other women too. My doctor told me he wanted me to see a ventura chiropractor to see if he was able to help me with the severity of my symptoms. I had never heard of this, but I went ahead and made the appointment because I was willing to try most anything.

Once I was in the office with the chiropractor, I was actually a little embarrassed because of the reason I was there. I am usually pretty straight forward with my condition, but I was at a back doctor’s office. That was my attitude anyway until he corrected me. He explained that he had quite a few patients who suffer from the same condition as me, and he even sees women who just have heavy periods too. He told me that the nervous system is what controls our menstruation cycles, and it finally clicked on why I was sitting there.

He was able to help me with a lot of my issues, and I will be forever grateful to both my doctor for suggesting I make the appointment as well as my chiropractor for helping to alleviate the symptoms. I still have endometriosis, but he has made it so my pain levels have been decreased significantly. Any time I have any health problem now, I mention it to him when I am in for one of my alignments. More often than not, he is able to help alleviate the pain from any of them!
