Womens Choice for Chiropractic

When working with a female and male patient population, chiropractors must recognize the difference between men’s and women’s needs when it comes to the treatment of pain using chiropractic therapy. Dr. Hegazi’s experience in recognizing these concerns is evident by female patients’ extremely successful responses to the wide array of treatment options specifically suited to women’s health needs which are available at Concept Chiropractic and Rehab. The female anatomy is mechanically designed to cope with different physical stresses than the male body. For example, the physical demands of pregnancy, post-pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, the menstrual cycle, and Osteoporosis all require special care and focus when using chiropractic therapy.

Most Common Conditions Affecting Women

BACK PAIN TREATMENT & PREVENTION

Women generally wear high heels to complement an outfit, not for comfort, but some might not realize that these shoes can cause serious discomfort in the feet and can also exacerbate back pain. High heels alter the balanced position of a person’s body. When a woman wears high heels, a new dynamic equilibrium occurs creating an imbalance between a woman’s hamstrings and their low back.

PREGNANCY AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

The average woman will gain 20 to 30 pounds during pregnancy. This, in conjunction with the added stress endured by the body from the weight of the baby, may result in severe discomfort. Several studies have proven about half of all expectant mothers will develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. This is notably evident during late pregnancy, when the baby’s head weighs down on a woman’s back, legs, and buttocks, irritating her sciatic nerve. For women who have previously suffered or currently suffer from low back pain, their condition may worsen.

OSTEOPOROSIS TREATMENT & CARE

As women age, the amount of calcium in their bones significantly decreases. Hence, this decreases the density of their bones, making them brittle and vulnerable to serious injuries. Osteoporosis often develops unnoticed by women for most of their adult lives, with no symptoms or pain, until a fracture occurs—most commonly in the hip, spine, and wrist. Factors that increase a female’s chance of developing osteoporosis include: aging, heredity, other health disorders, sedentary lifestyle, multiple medications, nutrition, and overall lifestyle.
