Women’s Empowerment & Chiropractic Collaboration

By Staci Boyer

 

In a world of women striving for empowerment and juggling work - life - balance, it has become more evident that mental clarity and an inflammation free body are key components in the secret formula for success.

Why do women do so many things, all of the time? One answer… because they CAN.

A big downfall for women is their nurturing need to put others first - and they will push on and on and continually put themselves on the bottom of their list of priorities. To be truly empowered for all that a women wants - she must find her way back to the top.

Enter the beloved Chiropractic Practice.

“Chiropractic focuses on the alignment of the spine. This can benefit women in many ways. Proper alignment of the spine leads to proper functioning of the nervous system, cutting down on the frequency and intensity of certain types of headaches. Proper alignment can also help ease the discomforts associated with more womanly issues such as menstruation, pregnancy, and birth. If a woman’s body is properly aligned it can help everything else function more efficiently” (from How Chiropractic Can Improve Women's Health)

Ultimately our end game is the need for a healthy spine - and as women- a healthy spine - results in a healthy nervous system and digestive system.

Caleb Spreiter, D.C., chiropractor at Integrative Chiropractic in Oklahoma states that “Chiropractic… is founded on the premise that the nervous system controls every other aspect of the human body, so a properly functioning nervous system allows for the body to function optimally”

Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial for women later in life as well. Woman are far more likely than men to develop Osteoporosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Alzheimer’s. Chiropractic can help prevent and protect women from these diseases by strengthening their joints and bones.

Now we know why women will benefit from seeking out Chiropractic care… lets discuss how we can strengthen the collaboration from both points of view.

In the theme of a woman wanting health, wellness, and empowerment, perhaps the Doctor of Chiropractic can be cognizant of the fact that this woman may be grasping at straws as a last resort, as many do not seek non-medicinal or holistic approaches first. If in fact this type of care is the norm for the female patient the conversation may go slightly different, but both will have a very similar narrative.

For example: questions in the gathering data stage should focus on, and end up revealing, where a woman might feel she is lacking - in regards to her full expectations or potential. Answers that you may get could be digestive issues, sluggishness, lethargy, chronic fatigue, inability to fall asleep, chronic pain. My suggestion is connecting Chiropractic care to the improvement and healing of those issues and stressing how the positive results will then enable them to have more mental clarity for work and family. Additionally, improvement of inability to sleep, and digestive issues will improve the sluggish, lethargic fatigued feeling that leaves them dragging from day to day.

The only result here will be a positive one. When a woman is well rested, clear headed, able to sleep through the night, grab a workout, make meals for a family, read, socialize, and solve world peace, - we feel unstoppable, and more importantly - happy.

We all know the benefits of a happy woman!

Here’s to developing tremendous conversations that will continue through powerful Chiropractic healing for women of all ages!
