Benefits Of Chiropractic Care In Women’s Health
Today’s women are a busy yet health conscious group, who generally take care of themselves last. They are constantly on the run, leading to fatigue and the desire to feel better. The stressful, care-taking role can lead to a variety of health complaints, which means women can benefit from a chiropractic approach to their health.
Chiropractic focuses on the alignment of the spine and the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Proper alignment of the spine leads to proper functioning of the nervous system and thus better function of all muscles, joints and systems of the body.
Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct subluxations (misaligned vertebra), which cause interference or a “short circuit” in the nervous system. Uncorrected spinal stress can lead to diminished function and pain in the body and the eventual degeneration of the discs and bones in the spine.
Conditions such as headaches and migraines have been significantly reduced and eliminated through chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic has been shown to help ease the discomfort associated with menstruation, digestive complaints, chronic pain syndromes and pregnancy.
Chiropractors that specialize in pregnancy are trained and certified in the Webster Technique for pregnant women, which is an adjustment of the pelvis that ensures the proper alignment and tension of the pelvic structure. This leads to a safer, healthier labor and delivery with fewer interventions. When the body is properly aligned it can aid in improved mood, sleep, immune system function and a healthier lifestyle.
Chiropractors can provide guidance regarding nutrition, supplementation, exercise, and lifestyle choices that will help achieve their goals. Chiropractors are adept at providing instruction on strengthening core muscle groups and setting a nutritional plan for women who are overweight or trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Chiropractic can also provide special care for women in their later years. Women are more prone to develop rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. Chiropractic can help protect women by strengthening the joints and bones, and keeping everything functioning together.
Women can benefit from regular chiropractic care no matter their age. Young women benefit from the strengthening and alignment while their bodies are still developing and growing. During childbearing years, women benefit by having improved function and less discomfort during and after pregnancy. Women in their golden years benefit from continued care as proper alignment leads to improved strength and balance. It’s never too late to start on a path to wellness.
