The uterus constricts during a period to force the lining away from the uterine wall and enable it to leave the body through the vagina. These contractions may hurt or be uncomfortable. They’re commonly referred to as cramps.
The majority of women who are menstruating suffer lower abdominal cramps, however, the discomfort can also spread to the lower back, groin, or upper thighs. Menstrual cramps often worsen at the start of a period and become better during the next several days.
At the start of their menstrual cycle, a lot of individuals complain of experiencing stomach or pelvic pain. In rare circumstances, few treatments might provide relief.
What causes period pain?
Period pain can have a variety of causes, so it seems sense that you might ask why your periods are consistently unpleasant. You could be the lone female in your family who experiences severe cramping. Maybe you didn’t start having painful periods until you were in your 20s. Whatever your circumstance, a doctor can explain to you why you get excruciating cramps every month. Among the most typical reasons for unpleasant periods are:
Major therapies to relieve period pain
Here, we’ll discuss what could be causing your period discomfort and provide two advanced therapies to help.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a pain management technique that employs a modest electrical current. A TENS unit is a tiny device that administers an electrical current through electrodes implanted on the skin’s surface near the nerves that cause pain. Gel pads are applied to the electrodes to help them adhere to the skin.
TENS units are great for treating unpleasant menstrual cramps. TENS treatment, which has been used in the medical sector for decades, is non-invasive and safe, with few or no adverse effects.
When used to treat menstrual cramps, the electrodes of the TENS unit can be placed on either the lower abdomen or the lower back, depending on which is closest to the source of the discomfort.
How does a TENS unit work?
TENS therapy is thought to relieve pain by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Research has shown that when vibration and pain sensations are occurring simultaneously, the vibration feeling reaches the brain first. This essentially blocks the feeling of pain from being perceived by the brain.
Another theory is that TENS therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Endorphins interact with receptors in the brain to reduce our perception of pain.
Heat has long been used as a home cure for period cramps, from warm compresses to hot water bottles. But, as it turns out, evidence backs up the heat as an efficient pain reliever.
When you apply heat to your lower abdomen or lower back, uterine contractions ease, resulting in reduced pain.
According to the Australian Physiotherapy Association, heat can greatly alleviate menstruation discomfort. According to the study, “58% of women who sought treatment underwent physiotherapy management with predominantly heat treatment.
Have you ever encountered excessively dry or stuffy heat? If this is the case, moist heat is the best solution.
Moisturized heat provides a soothing sensation that helps to ease discomfort. People can now get moist heat via a hot bath, hot water, or a Wellcare heating pillow.
