The Underlying Causes of Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual pain, also known as dysmenorrhea or menstrual cramps, affects over 84% of women, and 43% of women reported that the pain recurs every period[1]. It is considered normal to experience no pain before and after menstruation. However, the presence of lower abdominal, thigh, and back pain before, during, or after menstruation is categorized as menstrual pain.

Menstrual pain can be accompanied by symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, fatigue, and dizziness. In the absence of an underlying medical condition, it typically lasts for an average of 2 to 3 days.

When there are no pelvic disorders causing the pain, it is referred to as primary menstrual pain if it occurs during menstruation. On the other hand, if the pain is due to a pelvic disorder and occurs during menstruation, it is termed secondary menstrual pain.

How MBR Practitioners Address Menstrual Cramps

The treatment outcomes can vary based on the patient’s individual condition. However, it’s noteworthy that acupuncture, moxibustion, and herbal medicine have shown significant effectiveness in improving primary menstrual pain, with success rates ranging from 85% to 90%. For secondary menstrual pain, a combination of traditional medicine and Western medicine treatments can lead to symptomatic improvements.

During menstruation, it’s advisable to avoid overexertion and maintain warmth in the body. Engaging in appropriate exercise can enhance blood circulation and aid in the elimination of waste products. Additionally, it’s crucial to address emotional factors such as mental tension, excitement, and stress to promote overall well-being.

Why You Have to Seek Proper Treatments After an Auto Accident?

Risk of after effects

Vehicle accidents can result in varying degrees of damage to the spine, joints, muscles, ligaments, and other areas, depending on the direction and force of impact. Consequently, different types of symptoms may arise. It is possible for certain abnormalities or injuries to go unnoticed even during initial examinations immediately after the accident. Without receiving appropriate treatment following the incident, these after-effects can often lead to prolonged suffering over time.

Prevent Stress and Psychological Trauma

In addition to addressing severe fractures and external injuries resulting from auto accidents, such as damage to muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, acupuncture treatment also offers relief for psychological distress, including post-traumatic stress caused by the accident.

Achy and Stabbing Pain Caused by Poor Blood Circulation

According to Oriental Medicine theory, pain is often attributed to Qi and Blood stagnation resulting from poor circulation within the body. The significant impact of auto accidents can lead to injury in tissues, cells, bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, which can disrupt the circulation of Qi and blood, further exacerbating the pain.

Common Conditions Related with Motor Vehicle Accidents

Chronic Headache

Among the various issues resulting from auto accidents, spinal damage is the most common, followed closely by headaches. Statistics show that over half of auto accident patients experience traumatic headaches. In cases of severe trauma, individuals may also experience consciousness disorders and memory loss.

TMJ Disorder

Following an accident that results in significant bodily damage, the shock is quickly transmitted to the muscle joints and the neck, which is a relatively vulnerable and delicate area. In some instances, the jaw joint may be particularly affected by whiplash injury, more so than other regions.

Post-concussion Syndrome

Post-concussion syndrome is characterized by several main symptoms, including vomiting and headaches. Brain-related issues associated with the syndrome can result in dizziness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), hearing loss, impaired vision, and decreased concentration. Psychiatric symptoms may also arise, such as irritability, anxiety, depression, personality changes, fatigue, sleep disorders, cognitive impairment, memory loss, and difficulties with concentration and attention. While symptoms typically resolve within three months, it is important to note that approximately 15% of patients experience a prolonged duration of more than a year.

Pain and numbness in neck, shoulder, and back

Following an auto accident, it is common to experience pain in the neck, shoulder, and back. While symptoms may arise immediately after the accident, it is possible for the pain to develop or worsen within a day or two. If the cervical spine is damaged, there may also be sensations of numbness and tingling in the extremities.
