May is home to Women’s Health Week, appropriately tucked into this month that celebrates Mother’s Day. As we all know, there are significant differences between the health of men and women. Thanks to hormones like estrogen and testosterone, men and women have different risks for different health conditions. However, women are often the sex that puts their own health care at the bottom of the family priority list.
Here at Select Health Chiropractic, we see our women staff members and patients struggling to find balance within their family, professional, and health obligations. Fortunately, chiropractic care suits women’s health well, giving multiple benefits during preventative and specialized care.
Pregnancy and Post-Partum
Hormones and body changes are serious business for women’s health, and pregnancy and post-partum periods can cause a litany of health concerns for women. Chiropractic care can not only help to regulate the body’s hormones, it can also prepare the body for birth or even help the body heal after delivery. We suggest our patients visit regularly during pregnancy, and throughout their year of post-partum care.
Unfortunately, getting pregnant is not always an easy task for women. Chiropractic care is an excellent addition to your fertility treatment plan. Regular adjustments can not only reduce your stress, it can also assist with hormone regulation and tension.
Bone health is a topic important for women of all ages, but especially for those over the age of 40. Regular chiropractic care can assist with osteoporosis prevention and treatment.
