5 common female problems that can be solved with osteopathy
Infertility, heavy menstruation and morning swelling of the face – it turns out, these problems can also be caused by displacement of the bones, for example, after injuries. How clamps affect the production of hormones and whether osteopathy can help in solving such painful problems – in the material osteopath Vladimir Zhivotova.
Osteopathic treatment is an amazing panacea for a number of diseases. And among them there are those that are not associated with manual therapy in an ordinary person. Many people think that if they do not have, for example, a disease such as scoliosis, visiting an osteopath has nothing to do with them. However, this is not the case. The list of diseases that can be eliminated with the help of osteopathic treatment is almost endless. And today I would like to talk about what women’s problems can be solved by an osteopathic doctor.
These are the top 5 issues that concern every woman they have ever encountered in their lives.
1. Abundant menstruation
Nature has so conceived that a woman must lose a certain amount of blood every month, but such a quantity that will not affect her well-being. Abundant discharge – this is when a woman has to change personal hygiene products more than 4 times a day. Abundant discharge occurs for a number of reasons. The first – education in the uterus. If the examination did not reveal any changes, the reason may lie in the venous plethora of the uterus, which is associated with its omission. Usually volumetric processes in the genital organs occur with a general omission of the internal organs. I observed such a picture in almost all patients who came to me with complaints of heavy menstruation. The omission of internal organs is primarily related to injuries of the coccyx. Osteopathic treatment can eliminate the root cause: to return the shifted bones of the pelvis and lowered organs to the correct position, after which all the processes in the body are adjusted. After a course of osteopathic treatment, the amount of blood lost can be significantly reduced.
2. Premenstrual syndrome
Not only women are afraid of this syndrome, but everyone who surrounds them during this period, as PMS contributes to the deterioration of the woman’s well-being and mood. Why is this happening? When I examined women who had complained to me about PMS, I found in most of them previous head injuries. Most often it was about injuries in the fronto-facial area, which the patient suffered in childhood. Hormones oxytocin and endorphin, which the pituitary gland secretes, are responsible for our good mood. If the brain does not squeeze the cranium and it is well supplied with arterial blood, a sufficient amount of hormones is secreted to eliminate the possibility of sudden and unexpected mood swings. If a woman has had head injuries in the past, then in the premenstrual period, due to a sharp drop in the level of progesterone, a spasm of cerebral vessels can occur, which will lead to a change in mood, sharp manifestations of aggression, short temper. Osteopathic treatment helps to improve the blood supply to the brain, thereby increasing the amount of “hormones of happiness” produced and a woman tolerates a decrease in hormones in the premenstrual period much easier.
The harmonious development of the female reproductive system directly depends on the synchronous work of the endocrine organs. Thus, the functioning of the reproductive organs is associated with the development of certain hormones by the pituitary and hypothalamus. The pituitary gland is located on the lower surface of the brain. Its size is very small – no more than a pea. But despite the fact that the pituitary gland is protected by cerebrospinal fluid and the bones of the skull, it can be damaged as a result of head injuries. If damage occurs to the pituitary gland, it begins to produce hormones in insufficient or excessive amounts. This can not affect the work of a number of organs, in particular – to cause infertility. Practice has shown that all patients with infertility who have ever addressed me, in the past suffered a head injury. Osteopathic treatment corrects impaired mobility and the position of the bones of the skull, improves blood supply to the brain, therefore, the functions of the damaged part of the brain are restored. On the basis of my practice, I can conclude that the majority of patients with diagnoses have habitual miscarriage or infertility after a course of treatment, the osteopath has a pregnancy, and the birth was successful.
Distemper, apathy, bad mood – usually we are looking for the cause in bad weather, conflicts with people, circumstances, etc. All this undoubtedly affects our emotional state, but the causes of depression may be somewhat different. So, the following hormones “respond” to a good mood: oxytocin, endorphin, serotonin, dopamine.
