  Title Dysfunctional uterine bleeding with concomitant low back and lower extremity pain [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1991 Oct;14(8):472-477
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

In this case presentation, a temporal relationship between conservative chiropractic care and dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) in a patient with mild low back and primary leg pain is described. Criteria are discussed to establish protocol that will be useful in the formulation of a diagnosis for DUB secondary to lower sacral nerve root compression and lumbar mechanical dysfunction. There have been investigations recently published that suggest a positive relationship between chiropractic lumbar, closed reduction distractive decompression (CRDD) and patients with pelvic pain and organic dysfunction. This case study presents the treatment response of one patient with one form of somatovisceral dysfunction, namely, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, in the absence of pelvic pain. Conservative chiropractic care may be an effective, noninvasive method for treating some individuals with dysfunctional uterine bleeding, caused secondarily from biomechanical and/or neurological insult. Further research in this area is encouraged.
