Ease Period Pain With a Gentle Walk
25 to 50 percent of adult women experience pain and discomfort during their period, which is due to prostaglandins — inflammatory chemicasl released by your body during menstruation. To avoid or decrease period pain try some gentle exercise, like going for a walk, and don’t forget to drink the recommended one to three litres of water per day.
Osteopathic treatments can also be beneficial for period pain. Practitioners can address tight and sore muscles of the back, lower abdomen and hips, and apply treatment to any spasms occurring in the muscular walls of the uterus — this can provide relief to those women who suffer from cramping.
