Chiropractic programs are particularly beneficial for special needs of pregnant mothers, new mothers and women who are overweight or may be in stressful situations. Menstrual cycles, being pregnant, getting ready for pregnancy and recovery from childbirth are just a few difficulties that are specific matters for women. During pregnancy, a hormone called Relaxin is released in the body. Relaxin helps joints and ligaments to relax, lengthen and stretch out to allow the female body to expand in preparation for carrying a baby. As the body stretches and repositions, it is important that the body expands in correct alignment to keep muscle tension down and maintain spinal balance. Chiropractic care has proven to be extremely helpful for expectant mothers as well as helping the birth process to go smoothly.
Women also tend to carry stress in their necks and shoulders more commonly for men. This is most likely due to the differences in the anatomy of the female body, working ergonomics (desk jobs, computers, etc) or carrying children. This added stress to the upper back and neck can cause women to be more susceptible to headaches. Chiropractic care can have an extremely rapid and positive effect on headaches and if you are suffering from frequent headaches, you should consult your chiropractic physician as soon as possible.
