PMS and Wellness Chiropractic
Premenstrual syndrome is often talked and joked about even by the very women who suffer from it. It is marked by unexplainable and unpredictable symptoms in women from mood swings to murder. PMS is a serious problem and should be taken seriously. Four out of ten women of childbearing age experience PMS symptoms. Researchers describe PMS as an abnormal response to normal hormonal changes producing a host of symptoms including irritability, mood swings, tension, ineffectiveness, lack of motor coordination, mental fog, altered eating habits, variations in sexual drive and social impairment. Most women decide either to suffer with it or to take prescription drugs with potential serious side effects. Few women consider chiropractic as an option for care.
Studies show surprising benefits from chiropractic care for women who suffer from PMS. In one study, women with PMS histories were given chiropractic adjustments. The care continued for four menstrual cycles and consisted of 5-7 adjustments per month. They were evaluated in ten different categories of symptoms (irritability, mood swings, tension, ineffectiveness, lack of motor coordination, mental/cognitive functioning, eating habits, variations in sexual drive, overall physical symptoms and social impairment). The subjects showed improvement in all ten categories with significant improvements in the areas of sexual drive, social impairments and mood swings. In an article published in the Chiropractic Journal of Australia titled Premenstrual Syndrome: a clinical update for the chiropractor, Dr. Walsh states, "A Holistic chiropractic management regime offers the possibility of a safe, effective method of reducing many of the symptoms of PMS."
It is important that any woman suffering from PMS consider a Wellness Chiropractic evaluation to determine if chiropractic care may benefit. This may be the natural solution for you or a loved one.

How Can We Help
I have been seeing Dr. Kay and he has been awesome. Everyone in their office is very helpful and inviting. I would highly recommend them!
Dr. Jeff (Harris) and the front staff at Kay Harris are simply wonderful. They are so accomodating to families (showing up late/early, rescheduling last minute, etc). The office is always busy, but I've never had to wait longer than 5 minutes to see Dr. Jeff.
I didn't realize all of the benefits of chiropractic care until I started taking my newborn there and was able to see improvements within a few treatments. Now my entire family goes to see Dr, Jeff, including myself.
We are truly grateful for the care we have received from Dr. Harris and the team at Kay Harris Chiropractic. Dr. Harris helped me overcome the challenges of chronic neck and back pain. He also assisted our children with attention and digestive issues. There has been a significant improvement in our children's immune system since commencing regular chiropractic care. Neither child has had a fever in almost one year! Our entire family visits Dr. Harris on a regular basis to ensure we maintain a healthy immune system. We highly recommend Dr. Harris for full family chiropractic care.
I want to share my experience with Kay Harris Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Since the very first time I phoned the office, in severe pain, I was treated with respect, kindness and empathy. I was fit in the same day as a new patient/emergency. Since that visit, and every visit thereafter, I have also been treated with kindness, respect, empathy and concern. I have arrived in a lot of pain, I have been in tears, I have felt discouraged...and every time I leave there feeling better then when I arrived. They do not treat you like you are entering a business, they treat you like a friend. From the ladies at the front desk, to my favorite Chiropractor, Dr. Dan Kay, I am treated with respect and kindness. Everything is explained as you go along. Everyone is positive and encouraging. I highly recommend this Chiropractic office. Thank you everyone for always being just plain old nice...it is so appreciated.
