CHIROPRACTIC- WINNING WITH WOMEN
Chiropractors are winning with women and the best part is they are doing it without expensive and dangerous drugs and for less money than medical care. It’s no wonder women are more likely to visit chiropractor’s offices and more likely to refer others and bring their children to chiropractors. Let’s take a look at why that is;
PREGNANCY & CHILDBIRTH-More pregnant women than ever before are seeking regular chiropractic care through their pregnancy. The mother’s spine transitions through incredible and often stressful changes as their baby grows. Chiropractic care allows the pregnant spine to handle the added strain more efficiently, helps prevent pregnancy-related sciatica as well as other discomforts and has been proven to reduce labor time and chances or cesarean birth! Dr Haavik, a Neuroscientist and Researcher stated:
“We know that women experience on average a 24% reduction in the length of labour time with chiropractic care during pregnancy and that rises to a 33% reduction for those mothers who have given birth before. By altering the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of the pelvis we are likely enabling the muscles to become more relaxed and joints more mobile which probably helps them to expand more freely during labour and settle more easily afterwards.”
HEADACHES & MIGRAINES– Women suffer from migraines 3 times more often than men. A staggering 18 to 25 percent of women suffer from migraines, making it a huge and disabling problem for millions of women across the world. Thankfully, over 230 peer-reviewed articles referenced chiropractic’s ability to help cure, prevent and ease the burden of headaches and migraines with 49% reporting they had a “significant reduction in pain intensity”. That’s an astounding statistic that more people need to know- particularly women. Every drug carries with it a risk and no drug addresses the cause of the headaches, they only temporarily cover the pain. Chiropractors get to the source of the headache which is often to be mechanical, muscular and vascular in nature-all of which the spinal adjustment addresses.
NECK & BACK PAIN– Scores of women enter doctors offices daily with reports of neck and back pain. In a study published in the British Medical Journal 2003, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly allocated to a Chiropractor, a PT or a general practitioner for back pain for 52 weeks. The clinical outcome measures showed that chiropractic adjustments resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. Another study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians. If you are suffering from neck or back pain, a chiropractor is the practitioner you want to call.
HEALTHY KIDS, HAPPY MOMS– Moms and their kids are so intimately connected, I would be remiss not to mention how a child’s health directly relates to Mom’s health. Every Mother knows that when our children aren’t well it greatly impacts our life- emotionally, financially, educationally. Millions of parents are understanding more how important chiropractic care is to healthy and sick children alike. That is never more true than when talking about colic, ear infections, asthma and scoliosis, conditions that parents frequently seek chiropractic care for. The facts are that chiropractic works to help heal these and many other childhood maladies. Kids who get adjusted visit their pediatrician much less frequently because they are healthier when under chiropractic care-that’s a fact. Thankfully Mom’s are really beginning to understand the downfall of the reliance on prescription meds and are actively seeking healthier and safer alternatives. Chiropractic is at the top of that list. For more on kids and chiropractic click here.
