Dr. Andrew Arnold says, ‘it should come as no surprise that women are born with different body mechanics and chemical compound compared to men.’
There is a wide range of conditions that are more common in women. For example, we have wider hips that place more pressure on the knees, causing us to be more prone to patella dislocation-dislocation of the knee cap, especially for young athletes. Statistics also show that older women are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and degenerative joint disease compared to older men. The female anatomy is designed to bear children and this is assisted by mechanical and hormonal changes during and after pregnancy. Naturally, this poses a number of issues such as low back pain, premenstrual syndrome and menstrual headache.
Chiropractic adjustments serve to remove interferences along the nerves throughout the whole body to restore proper function of the nervous system. It is beneficial for women of all ages whether symptoms present or not. As a chiropractor, my role is not only to remove the symptoms presented by women but to provide or recommend the best treatment options to assist women in getting well and staying well physically and mentally. I have a special interest in low-force techniques that are well suited for patients who prefer a gentler approach that is just as effective as manual adjustments.
