As a way to prepare for National Women’s Health and Fitness Day on September 28, the Chiropractors at AICA Marietta wanted to spend some time discussing the role Chiropractic care has on women’s health.
For subjects that are unique to women throughout Marietta and the greater Atlanta community, the use of Chiropractic Adjustments is proven to be effective at relieving pain associated with pregnancy and pelvic disorders, as well as addressing conditions that affect newborns or infants.
Review the following information and schedule an appointment with one of our Chiropractors to learn more about how it can help you manage pain associated with common conditions that affect women.
Chiropractic Care For Pregnant Women
A woman’s body is always adapting to new changes during and after the pregnancy process.
These adjustments can lead to minor or major discomfort, depending on the particular conditions of the pregnancy.
Through the use of controlled Chiropractic Adjustments, expecting mothers experience a more comfortable, pain-free process leading up to the delivery.
AICA Marietta’s Chiropractors provide treatment that supports:
- Chronic neck pain
- Shoulder and upper back pain from expanding breast size
- Severe lower back discomfort
- Hip pain
- Severe and frequent headaches
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Leg pain otherwise referred to as ‘sciatica.’
- Pelvic pain
- Ligament pain
Chiropractic Care For Pelvic Disorders
Pelvic disorders or other pelvic floor issues like stress incontinence and suffering intercourse are very common conditions for women.
Visiting a Chiropractor at AICA Marietta allows you to be examined by experienced doctors and physical therapists who can create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the musculoskeletal causes of your pain.
Treatment may include regular adjustments, as well as dietary and lifestyle changes.
Chiropractic Care for Newborns and Infants
The birthing and delivery process can both be extremely challenging for women, regardless of their medical history or other considering variables.
Some newborns or infants can struggle with adjusting to their new environment or the type of activities that are required for their benefit such as breastfeeding or turning their head in both directions.
For infants that suffer from torticollis or colic, gentle chiropractic adjustments, and craniosacral therapy are both proven treatment solutions that can help.
These particular Chiropractic techniques remove stress and tension off of their nervous system, which has a calming and balancing effect on the infant’s physical and mental state.
