Chiropractic Care for Women’s Health

Posted on: Oct 6th, 2022 by adminva | Categories: Uncategorized

Chiropractic care is a drug free, non-invasive form of therapy to assess, diagnose, treat, and prevent issues related to the musculoskeletal system. Extensive training and experience enable chiropractors to assist with improving your physical and mental health and your overall wellbeing through gentle adjustment techniques and education, typically focussing on spinal health and the impact it has on the rest of your body.

By realigning the spine and joints, the body’s structure and systems can work better, which can help to increase functionality, mobility, and comfort. Chiropractors treat and support people of all ages and genders.

When it comes to women’s health specifically, there are many conditions we can help with. Our chiropractors, who have specific experience in women’s health, can discuss your requirements and provide respectful and discrete care in a safe environment.

Common Health Issues For Women That Chiropractors Can Treat

Women can deal with an array of issues throughout all stages of their lives. These may develop from a variety of causes, such as trauma and injuries, pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal changes, and illness. A lot of women believe certain issues are normal and something they just must get on with. But in many cases, this isn’t true.

At The Physio Movement, our chiropractors will provide a comprehensive assessment to identify and diagnose issues. We will then develop a personalised care plan that targets your requirements and goals based on evidence-based techniques and methods.

Treatment can involve manipulation, exercise prescription and education, tailored to meet your specific needs.

Some issues that are commonly experienced by women that chiropractors treat include:

Prenatal, childbirth and postnatal changes and discomfort

This may include issues such as back pain, abdominal muscle separation, nerve irritation, and pelvic floor dysfunction. These can occur due to contributing factors such as the altered balance of weight during pregnancy and changing hormones, which can cause joint laxity. Chiropractors can help to realign the spine and joints to reduce inflammation and damage. Spinal manipulation can also help to relax the pelvic floor muscles and help women with vaginal delivery during childbirth.

Painful intercourse and menstrual cycles, recovery from gynaecological surgery, and endometriosis

Female sexual organs require good nerve supply from the spine to function well. This can be reduced by a misaligned spine. Chiropractors can perform adjustments to improve the positioning of joints to reduce the negative effects and increase comfort.

Bladder and bowel changes, and pelvic region weakness and prolapse

Problems such as urinary and faecal incontinence can arise from an array of medical conditions and body changes, such as diabetes, childbirth, and weakness of the urethral muscular support system. Reoccurring bladder infections can also be an issue.

Chiropractic care can involve a pelvic floor examination, and practical advice and relevant exercise prescription to improve urinary urgency, frequency and leakage, and bladder irritation. Understanding how to identify, retrain, strengthen, and heal the internal muscles within the pelvic floor can be crucial for improvement. We can also provide advice regarding helpful equipment and tools, such as garments and belts.

Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis

Thinning, weakening bones and joint degeneration can be serious conditions for men and women. These issues typically affect the older generation, but younger people can also be impacted. The associated pain and decreased mobility affect many women. These can respond well to gentle manipulation, movement, and exercises provided by a chiropractor.

Hip bursitis

Inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs within the hip joints affects more women than men. Realigning the spine and corresponding joints can assist with correcting the pressure and irritation in the hip.


Another issue that is not restricted to women but significantly affects their lives is stress. Chiropractors believe there is a relationship between the spine, nervous system, and mental health. Physical issues can cause stress and subsequent mental health issues, and visa versa. The holistic nature of chiropractic care incorporates this connection to work towards improving the underlying cause.
