To function in a busy world where demands and challenges, both physically and mentally come from all quarters, it is essential that women create balance for their health and wellbeing. Integrating lifestyle, diet and nutrition and holistic checks and treatments is an important aspect of looking after your whole being. Bringing the body back into balance is often focused on spinal alignment and for this women can utilize a solid exercise plan and seek out chiropractic techniques for stronger spinal alignment.
Chiropractic care and fitness can be incorporated as part of a care plan for prevention, as well as healing of injuries, and to combat female-related issues which test every woman’s body at various points of her life. As the body changes, women need to adjust to specific physical issues and adapt their fitness plan and keep checks on how their body’s systems are responding to new developments.
What is chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic medicine is a complementary therapy that has many supporters but is still under scrutiny when it comes to proof of its effectiveness. It is a hands-on treatment that involves spinal and joint manipulation, with the basic belief being that spinal misalignment affects the body’s nervous system and functions, which can lead to a multitude of health problems.
Women go through hormonal changes constantly, during menstruation each month, as well as during specific times in life, such as pregnancy, during postnatal recovery, as well as menopause. However, when these hormones feel like they are attacking or are out of balance then the result can be incredibly painful conditions such as endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and PMS (premenstrual syndrome) which can seriously affect a woman’s quality of life and overall sense of wellbeing, Fitness and chiropractic treatment targets the body’s ability to balance and control these hormones.
Treating the nervous system
The nervous system consists of your spinal cord, brain and a whole network of neurons. If there is any stress or issue with spinal misalignment, then chiropractic practitioners believe this impacts communication through this system and the body’s ability to manage and function properly. Because women are far more prone to joint issues, such as pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis, there is a real need for women to ensure that they are allowing for the right messages to be sent to different parts of their body.
Exercise balances too
By reducing stress and using exercise to strengthen joints and create balance, exercise plays a vital role in wellbeing too. This in turn can help balance hormones and also stimulate the body to function in a healthy way, which not only protects, but strengthens and heals. Many types of exercise, such as yoga and Pilates, as well as individual work with a personal trainers, focus on this idea of strength and spinal alignment.
Lifestyle, injury through misguided exercise, as well as lots of sitting down and stress on the spine, can all create spinal misalignment. With the right care and attention this can often be corrected and as a woman’s body goes through natural changes, or deals with specific wellbeing issues, being able to monitor and tackle wellbeing is essential.
Today, wellness is about integrated healthcare and fitness.
