Menstrual pain is felt by most women at some time during their lives, beginning 1-2 years after menses begin. It can range from uncomfortable twinges each month to intense stomach, back and leg pain. Spasms and cramping are common and lead to lost work days and enjoyment of everyday life.
Less frequently, menstrual cramps may be due to issues with reproductive organs, including
- endometriosis and
- pelvic inflammatory disease.
All these situations can be relieved or totally eliminated with experienced acupuncture in Snohomish.
You don’t have to continue to live with painful menstrual cycles. Acupuncture involves targeting specific pressure points on the body with small, thin needles. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and constant pain can be things of the past after even a single session, although repeat action offers the most long-lasting results. Traditional medicine relies on pain medication, surgery, birth control pills, massage and heat. Acupuncture reduces period pain without resorting to dangerous medicines that have harmful side effects that can affect other areas of the body.
A plan for treatment is designed for each individual to maximize the success of acupuncture and reduction or eradication of pain. A medical evaluation will be conducted to determine overall health and identify concerns that may affect treatment.
