Being a woman is hard work. With Mother’s Day around the corner, we wanted to talk about chiropractic care for women’s health. Women can benefit from chiropractic care no matter their stage in life. Spinal adjustments, stretches, exercises, nutrition counseling, and other services are designed to improve spinal and brain communication. This can help reduce pain and improve quality of life. If you’re a woman trying to maintain good health, chiropractic treatment can help you combat a variety of issues.
Pain and Stress Reduction
Women are more busy, active, and stressed than ever. Between exercise and physical activity to motherhood labor and sitting at desks all day at work, our bodies go through a lot. Subluxations, or the misalignment of one or more vertebrae in the spine, can come from any number of causes. These include:
- The way you sleep
- Daily wear and tear
Chiropractic can get a woman’s body back in line, no matter the cause. And remember, there is a direct relationship between pain and stress. If you’re under a lot of stress, you may feel all kinds of pain and discomfort. And if you’re stressed, more often than not, your mental health may suffer too. Chiropractic care can help relieve the side effects of stress – especially if you tend to carry that stress in your neck or back.
Improves Health During Pregnancy
Whether you’re getting ready for pregnancy, already pregnant, or recovering from childbirth, you can be aided through chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments can make moms feel a bit more comfortable. Those who utilize chiropractic care often notice an improvement in pelvic pain, back pain, leg pain, and sciatica. Not to mention, often report sleeping better and being more productive and efficient during the day. Adjustments help release tension and allow you a bit of relief!
Pregnancy also compromises a woman’s immune system. The reduced immune function can lead to illness at a time when maintaining good health is very important. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help boost the immune system. Chiropractic care can improve the functioning of the central nervous system through the realignment of the spine. This improves the body’s ability to defend itself from diseases and illnesses.
Brand new moms tend to experience a bit of muscle pain and fatigue while they recover. Both stretches and spinal adjustments can help women improve their balance and coordination. Not to forget that consistent spinal practice can help reduce muscle tension in the days and weeks after delivery.
Can Help Regulate Hormones During Menopause
Menopause is a time when hormones seem to go haywire and change within the body. This can lead to a plethora of symptoms which can include mood swings, weight fluctuation, hot flashes, and other problems. Spinal adjustment can help regulate hormone production in the body. Chiropractic care makes this transitional stage in life a lot easier to go through than what it would be without treatment.
Reduces Changes of Chronic Problems in Older Age
As women age, they develop a greater risk for chronic health conditions like osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s. Chiropractic care helps women combat the effects of osteoporosis by boosting the strength and function of the bones, joints, and muscles. It can even help improve posture. Remember, chiropractic care improves communication within the body’s nervous system. Meaning it can help women stay healthier and sharpen brain function. By releasing disruptions that could cause organ and tissue malfunction, problems like Alzheimer’s may be delayed!
