From concentrated low back pain to issues during pregnancy, throughout their lives, women often experience a variety of unique problems with their musculoskeletal system. One way to mitigate these issues is with Chiropractic care.
Here are three different ways in which Chiropractic care can help benefit women:
1. Cramps & Lower Back Pain
Women experience cramps and lower back pain for a variety of different reasons, from complications related to menstruation to endometriosis. Sometimes, these cramps can be so debilitating that women are left barely able to move. One method of dealing with the pain is through Chiropractic care. By manipulating the spine and treating the soft tissues of the low back and pelvis with ART® or Acupuncture, the symptoms of cramping can be reduced.
2. Menopause & Osteoarthritis
While also found in men, osteoarthritis is more common in women. This is because of a variety of different factors, including changes in hormone levels during menopause, wider hip placement when compared to men, and strong genetic links among female genetics. A Chiropractor can help reduce the pain of Osteoarthritis in women through a combination of Chiropractic Adjustments and Acupuncture.
Pregnancy is tough on the body, especially as baby grows and momma's centre of gravity shifts forward. As pregnancy progresses ligaments relax and loosen the pelvis in preparation for labour and delivery. This comes for most moms-to-be at a cost: discomfort and pain. A Chiropractor can help manage the discomfort of pregnancy with Chiropractic Adjustments, ART® and tried and true self-management strategies she has used herself during her own pregnancies.
