  Title The management of symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1991 Mar-Apr;14(3):209-216
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Criteria for the accurate diagnosis of premenstrual syndrome are described and a methodology for monitoring patient response to treatment is presented. The PMT-Cator, a recently developed device, affords a procedure for converting the patient's subjective symptoms into an objective menstrual cycle interval score, thereby providing a means for statistical analysis in larger, controlled clinical trials. Most investigators agree that there are somatic phenomena which are causally related to the symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome. Furthermore, the chiropractic profession purports a primary relationship between anatomical structure and physiologic function. This case presentation examines a potential relationship between chiropractic spinal adjusting procedures and the management of premenstrual symptoms. Protocols from this isolated case study are presented as a template for suggested future research.
