HORMONE IMBALANCE | MENORRHAGIA, DYSMENORRHEA and DYSFUNCTIONAL UTERINE BLEEDING

A 18 year old patient presented to the clinic with a history of abnormal rhythm in their monthly cycle.

All pelvic examinations with Ultra-Sound were negative.

The patient complained of heavy painful periods, with clotting of the blood. The period of the bleed would last for seven days. She would also experience fluid retention and pain below the umbilical region.

Psycho-emotional state of the patient; Impatient, disappointed with herself, under stress, sad, anxious, holding stuff in, breathing problems, mood swings.

All these symptoms coincided with a road traffic accident a year ago, where the patient was hospitalised, in shock, suffering with amnesia.

Osteopathy and Acupuncture look specifically into the causation of symptomatology. There are a pluralism of factors that are involved in ‘driving a symptom pattern’, and it is in the body i.e. the musculo-skeletal structures where we find the root problem of the symptoms. In this case, there we many asymmetries and musculo-skeletal blocks of the cervical and thoraco-lumbar segments of the spine.

Treatment consisted of Osteopathic mobilisation of the lumbar spine to aid the outflow of the autonomic nervous system to the pelvic organs. Acupuncture was applied to regulate the neuro-endocrine system, to aid circulation, ease muscular cramps and reduce fluid retention. Osteopathic manipulation of the cervical spine to aid thyroid and parathyroid function as a mediator for hormone balance.
