"I've always had problems with my period. Almost every other month I would have severe, debilitating cramps, back pain, get dizzy, throw up, and sometimes black out causing me to miss school and work at times. I saw my doctor and they diagnosed me with endometriosis. They tried oral birth control and later a hormonal IUD. Both improved my symptoms some, but I still had some problems. I got tired of dealing with the side effects, so I stopped treating it and assumed I would just always have to deal with my endometriosis. While my husband, Dr. Brad was in chiropractic school, he started learning about how subluxations in the spine could affect the nerves running from the spine to the ovaries and uterus, and was linked to problems like endometriosis. I was skeptical at first and didn't get my hopes up, but agreed to give it a try. I began getting adjusted regularly and haven't experienced symptoms of my endometriosis since- no throwing up, blacking out, and I've had mild cramping only a couple of times in the last 3 years.
Chiropractic has also been a huge help to my back pain. Since I was a teenager I've always had chronic back pain from a soccer injury in high school, but since getting adjusted I don't have any problems and am able to enjoy being active. I also have noticed a big difference in my immune system. I've worked in the ER and Trauma Surgery department for the last 3 years so I'm constantly around sick people. Since getting adjusted regularly I've only had a mild cold once.
