Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone. Since the main purpose of thyroid hormone is to “run the body’s metabolism”, it is understandable that people with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism. Hypothyroidism is more common than you would believe…and, millions of people are currently hypothyroid and don’t know it!
Chiropractic will find a Subluxation of the upper thoracic spine.
Symptoms may include;
• Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
• Coarse, dry hair
• Dry, rough pale skin
• Hair loss
• Cold intolerance (can’t tolerate the cold like those around you)
• Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
• Memory loss
• Abnormal menstrual cycles
• Decreased libido
Each individual patient will have any number of these symptoms which will vary with the severity of the thyroid hormone deficiency and the length of time the body has been deprived of the proper amount of hormone. Some patients will have one of these symptoms as their main complaint, while another will not have that problem at all and will be suffering from a different symptom. Most will have a combination of a number of these symptoms. Occasionally, some patients with hypothyroidism have no symptoms at all, or they are just so subtle that they go unnoticed.
This condition can be helped with chiropractic care.
