There are so many demands for women. While trying to find that all-elusive work-life balance, stress, and illness can develop, impairing a woman’s overall health. Chiropractic treatments can counteract these outside stressors, supporting the body’s immune system and speeding up recovery.
Women have different needs throughout their life, continuing to grow and adapt at every stage. Discomfort and hormone imbalances can occur at any time. For many women, chiropractic care at Family Chiropractic and Optimal Health Nutrition helps maintain their optimal health and well-being. Learn more about chiropractic treatment and how it supports women’s health.
What Is Chiropractic Care?
35 million Americans seek chiropractic treatment every year. Chiropractic is a specialty focused on disorders impacting the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Both systems can have a direct influence on general health. Common conditions treated with chiropractic care are headaches, neck, back, and joint pain. Such symptoms can arise from repetitive stress injuries, pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal imbalances, and more.
A chiropractic adjustment involves the subtle manipulation of spinal vertebrae. This can improve communication from the brain and spinal cord to areas throughout the body. It is a conservative approach that is safe and non-invasive. Chiropractic treatments of subluxations often promote a sense of relaxation, as well as a reduction in discomfort and other symptoms.
How Chiropractic Bolsters Women’s Health
Sitting, standing, bending, and performing daily activities like working online, holding a child or gardening, can lead to spinal misalignment. This can result in shoulder, neck, lower back, and knee pain. Chiropractic adjustments are often used for pain management and to bring the body back into balance.
Not every discomfort has an easily diagnosed cause. Hormonal changes, such as those associated with adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause, can also lead to physical and emotional symptoms. Careful spinal adjustments have been utilized in correcting hormonal imbalances and restoring general health. Patients with other invisible illnesses, like autoimmune and thyroid disorders, have also seen a reduction in symptoms with chiropractic care.
Improved Quality of Life
Your quality of life is important. A woman has unique and changing needs that may not always be fully supported by traditional medical care. Alternative treatments like chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage therapy, acupuncture, and dietary changes have helped many women regain their vitality and achieve improved health.
