Women’s Chiropractic

Now more than ever, women are becoming increasingly active, both at work and at play. At Fox Integrated Health, we help women feel, function and perform their best through chiropractic care and integrated health solutions designed to restore balance within the female body. Throughout a woman’s life, from child-bearing years all the way through menopause, hormones constantly fluctuate, which can have a significant effect on overall systemic functioning and well-being.

Through targeted, precise chiropractic adjustments, women’s chiropractic care gradually brings the spine back into proper alignment, improving communication between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. When your spine is properly aligned, it allows both your nervous system and musculoskeletal system to function optimally, resulting in profoundly positive improvement to your overall well-being.

A variety of health concerns and musculoskeletal conditions can benefit from routine women’s chiropractic care, including:

  • Chronic headaches

  • Arthritis-related joint pain and loss of function
  • Joint inflammation
  • Postpartum pain
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Low back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Overactive bladder

Health Benefits of Women’s Chiropractic

If you struggle with acute or chronic pain, poor posture, limited mobility, poor range of motion or overall physical decline, women’s chiropractic care offers a variety of health benefits, including:

Improved Nervous System Functioning
When your spine shifts out of proper alignment, your vertebrae place substantial pressure on the nerves that branch away from your spinal cord and communicate with the rest of your body. Compressed nerves are dysfunctional nerves, meaning they cannot efficiently transfer information and signals from your central nervous system. As we restore spinal alignment and musculoskeletal balance, we relieve the pressure on those compressed nerves, which improves systemic communication and overall functioning.

Pain Relief
A misaligned spine can be incredibly uncomfortable, especially if the misalignment is the result of an injury or degenerative arthritis. Too, misalignments that have persisted and worsened over the long term can elicit intense, chronic pain involving the surrounding muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. By restoring proper spinal alignment, we relieve pain and discomfort by reducing tension around the spine, restoring normal nerve function, increasing blood flow to soft tissues and reducing inflammation.

Improved Mobility and Physical Performance
Aging brings about a wide variety of changes in the female body, some of the most common of which are osteoarthritis, osteopenia, and osteoporosis. Unfortunately, as joint cartilage begins to break down and the skeletal system gradually deteriorates, women can experience a significant loss of mobility and associated discomfort. Through gentle, precise adjustments, women’s chiropractic care helps improve mobility and slow the progression of chronic, degenerative musculoskeletal conditions by restoring alignment, improving posture and strengthening the body.

What to Expect With Women’s Chiropractic

At Fox Integrated Health, women’s chiropractic care begins with a consultation to determine your unique needs and goals of treatment. If you’re a candidate for treatment, you’ll then undergo a comprehensive physical exam to locate musculoskeletal shifts and abnormalities, so we can provide an in-depth diagnosis and plan of care. You’ll also discuss your medical history, current concerns, limitations and lifestyle habits, which allows us to gain an in-depth understanding of your unique condition and how we can best serve you.

After your evaluation, Dr. Derek Fox or Dr. Audrey Kenyon-Fox will discuss the findings of your physical assessment and formulate an individualized plan of care designed to restore balance and optimal functioning. Depending on the severity of your current health concerns and your body’s response to treatment, your doctor will adjust the frequency of your visits over time.

Women’s Chiropractic: Frequently Asked Questions

The nerves that regulate your hormonal system and uterine muscles branch away from your spinal cord and extend out through your spine’s lower vertebrae. When your spine or pelvis becomes misaligned, those nerves gradually become compressed, and that pressure impedes their ability to function normally. Restoring proper alignment by adjusting the spine and hips relieves nerve compression, which can have a dramatic effect on persistent, irritating menstrual symptoms.

Yes, absolutely. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, we take a holistic approach to women’s chiropractic care by offering a variety of therapeutic modalities that restore optimal female balance. At our clinic, in addition to female-specific chiropractic adjustments, we also offer BioTe hormone therapy, which includes comprehensive testing of your current hormone levels, thyroid function, organ function, lipid levels, vitamin deficiencies and blood glucose levels. Based on our findings, we’ll then formulate your individualized hormone balancing protocol and routinely test how your body is responding to the therapy.
