Hello everyone. Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute and a canfitpro
certifiedPersonal Training Specialist, Active Aging Coach and Children’s Fitness Coach.
Today I would like to share a case history with you and this was one of my very first patients.
Kayla was 12 years old when she came in for her initial appointment and she was suffering from extreme pre-menstrual syndrome
, heavy cramping and very irregular cycles.
The cramping was so bad that it would frequently debilitate her and she would often times be bed-ridden for 2 or 3 days at a time.
After her consultation and postural examination, we took some xrays. Just a basic screen to thoroughly assess her posture.
And her posture system was a hot mess!
She had forward head posture, her shoulders were uneven, her pelvis was tipped and her lowerback was both curved and twisted.
This was by far the worst part of her entire posture system; her lower back and pelvis. This being Posture Quadrant number 3.
I explained to Kayla and her mom during the report of findings that this bad posture distortion could possibly impair the function of her reproductive organs; her ovaries, fallopian tubes and her uterus.
And that this was causing her issues with PMS.
I also explained to them that we needed to correct this right away so we started the Complete Posture Correction programthat very same day.
Fast forward …. 6 months later.
Comparative xrays showed a 50% improvement in her postural alignment but moreover, her PMShad all but vanished and her menstrual cycles had normalized – every 28 days.
Now the reason I am sharing this with you is because there are too many women of all ages who struggle with PMS and fertility issues.
They often times resort to medications (side-effects) when chiropractic care and postural correction can offer an effective and natural alternative.
