Chiropractic For PMS

A new study shows chiropractic treatments may just be what the doctor ordered to combat premenstrual syndrome. In the study, 25 women were randomly selected to receive either a "true" chiropractic spinal adjustment or a placebo/sham spinal adjustment. After evaluating their findings in the 9 month study, researchers found symptom scores using a standard PMS questionnaire decreased after chiropractic treatment for most women. While these results are promising, researchers point out that additional studies are needed.
