Our work at the clinic is not limited to muscle strains, posture can also affect the health of the internal organs.
A 33-year-old woman came into our clinic in 2012 with several complaints, including pain the low back, hip, and SI joints. At the time she was pregnant after several miscarriages; the patient also had a history of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a painful condition that many women suffer with during their child-bearing years. With this condition, women experience infrequent and/or prolonged periods, increased levels of androgen, and can deal with complications such as infertility, sleep apnea, depression, and nausea.
Postural analysis revealed significant distortions of the hips, including excessive flexion and a flexion disorder. After a month’s worth of treatments, our patient began to feel much better. Pain levels were reduced as she proceeded through her pregnancy and had a healthy delivery.
Within 2 years, she began to suffer from the symptoms of PCOS and suffered a miscarriage. She experienced extreme nausea and loss of appetite, also the pain in her low back and hips returned. Again, she presented with extreme hip flexion. Treatments involving the muscles of the hips proved helpful. She also benefited from treatment to the uterus, ovaries, and bladder. These organs were compressed due to the extreme flexion of the hips. After multiple treatments, her symptoms began to subside. Her appetite returned and pain diminished. Soon after the symptoms were resolved she became pregnant again! She received treatments throughout her pregnancy and had a healthy delivery.
