Chiropractic Care for Endometriosis
The type of Chiropractic care AICA Atlanta provides focuses on relieving and correcting a broad range of conditions, including endometriosis.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this condition, endometriosis is a pain chronic disorder that sees the tissue that lines the uterus suddenly start to grow outside of it.
This type of abnormality causes women to experience severe pain, especially during their menstrual period.
Causes of Endometriosis
This disorder slowly develops several years after the onset of menstruation and doesn’t cease until a woman reaches menopause.
Although medical experts and researchers have not been able to identify the root cause of endometriosis, there are a number of explanations Chiropractors refer to, including:
- Embryonic cell growth
- Surgical scar implantation
- Immune system disorder
- Endometrial cells transport
- Retrograde menstruation
As of now, approximately 1 in 10 women throughout the world suffer from the painful side effects associated with endometriosis.
The most noticeable symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain.
Most women also tend to experience dysmenorrhea (extremely painful periods), severe cramping, and pelvic pain just days before a menstrual period takes place.
Other notable symptoms include:
- Painful bowel movements and urination
- Extreme fatigue
Unfortunately, one-third of all women who experience endometriosis also suffer from infertility issues.
Who Is At Risk In Atlanta?
There are a number of recognized risk factors that increase the chances of experiencing this disorder. These factors include:
- Women who have never given birth
- Family history
- Prior pelvic infections
- Women who suffer from uterine abnormalities
