Chiropractic & Fibroids

I'm pretty much right on the verge of making the decision to have a DaVinci hysterectomy (removing the uterus & cervix but leaving the tubes & ovaries).

I feel like I need to ask you all this, though, before making the final decision.

Does anyone have any information on chiropractic helping or not helping with fibroids and/or thickened endometrium? Can you point me to the source (your personal experience, studies, or whatever)?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Chiropractic & Fibroids

I think the chiropractor may help to make you feel better by aligning the skeletal system if it is out of whack due to the stress of fibroids. For example altered posture due to pelvic pain results in muscle spasms. It is temporary and palliative. It does not address the fibroid or endometrium directly.

Re: Chiropractic & Fibroids

My uterus was full of fibroids which were putting pressure on my pelvic floor. This caused lots of alignment and low back issues. I saw the chiro regularly to help keep me in alingment, but because the fibroids were constantly adding pressure, I couldn't "hold" the adjustments.

Now that I've had my LAVH, I am doing a little physical therapy and seeing the chiro to correct the damage and retrain my body. Pilates is also helping tremendously. It's been a slow road but I'm starting to see good results and am very optimistic!

FYI - I did try other holistic approaches such as dietary changes and accupuncture. I think that those techniques would have been more helpful if I had been able to devote more time to them sooner. By the time I tried them, I think my uterus was too far gone to get the results I wanted when I needed them. So I decided to move ahead with the surgery. I am now seeing my accupuncturist to help with some residual effects of the surgery including fatigue and a little anxiousness. It's also helping to restore some balance.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Re: Chiropractic & Fibroids

Hi SG-Indiana - I can't speak for chiropractors, but if you are open to alternative treatments, you might consider trying accupuncture. My best friend had an egg size cyst in her ovary. She was told it required removal. With accupuncture and Chinese medicine, it completely broke down/dissolved. She hasn't had any recurrence for over ten years. I personally spent five months going for accupuncture and Chinese medicine over this past winter as I still had no diagnosis for my severely heavy bleeding and cramps (was told no endometriosis). Uunfortunately, it was on my medical record (which I recently obtained and read....something I recommend that EVERYBODY should do....the information belongs to each of us, legally) that the gyno suspected I had a fibroid in my uterus, but nobody passed that information on to me. When I questioned why nobody had told me, I was told "there's lots of information that you aren't told". My point is, I believe that if I had known about the fibroid earlier, I would have had more success with the alternative treatment. Since I have stopped, and pursued Western diagnosis and treatment again, my periods are even again, I do believe that the alternative treatment helped alot. A friend of mine is a Naturopath, and her mantra is "use Western medicine for diagnosis, and surgery where required. Use Eastern Medicine to help treat and recover".

Good luck!
