Cramping and Lower Back Pain Help in Vacaville CA

Chiropractic Vacaville CA Cramps and Lower Back Pain

Women who are on the child-bearing age would experience both menstrual cramps and lower back pain in Vacaville CA at some point. Most of them would just tick it off as a normal part of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and they just do their own way of coping with the pain until it goes away. Though some women experience lower back with their menstrual cycle, not everyone will suffer from it. In fact, if it's been years since you've had your period and have not experienced lower back pain, there's a chance that you won't.

Menstrual back pain, like menstrual cramping, depends on every woman. If some will experience severe cramping and lower back pain, there are those who will have neither at all. The pain can be mild, bearable, and out of control but there is no way of telling how a woman's body will react. It is interesting to know that many women haven't had any lower back pain related to menstrual cramping once they have given birth.


How long will the pain last in Vacaville CA?

Menstrual cramping usually starts before the onset of the cycle and can linger after several days. Even if it varies in every woman, back pain associated with cramping tends to last no more than 3 days.

However, if you're experiencing acute back pain during your menstrual cycle due to other reproductive disorders, your cramping and related back pain may keep on recurring throughout the menstrual cycle.


What are the symptoms?

Apart from menstrual cramping and lower back pain, there are other specific symptoms that goes along with it. Many women experience these symptoms even before the cramping and back pain starts, which is an indication that those symptoms are imminent.

The additional symptoms include severe abdominal pain, dull aches in the abdominal region, and radiating pain from the lower back all the way down to the thighs. These symptoms are a precursor to the cramps and back pain.


Why menstrual cramps cause back pain?

The contraction of the uterine muscles causes menstrual cramps, which persists throughout a woman's period. Unfortunately, the uterus contracts stronger during the premenstrual period and early days of the cycle, which then causes cramping. The contraction of uterine muscles will put too much pressure on the blood vessels and will deprive the uterus oxygen.

Depending on the strength of the contractions, the intensity of the cramps will vary and will then dictate how strong the back pain is going to be.

The back and uterus are in close proximity to each other so the pain and your reaction to the menstrual cramps will create tension in your lower back. Prolonged periods of tension and tight muscles can strain your lower back muscles.
