Women’s healthcare is a focal point here at Health In Motion. As a woman, herself, Dr. Auchter knows what you face each day. From Stress Relief to eliminating pain, our Chiropractor knows what it takes to tackle the root cause of your condition. Women face many different experiences than men. These can include pregnancy, migraines, and hip pain. Here at Health in Motion Chiropractic, we work with you to treat the root causes of your conditions rather than just the symptoms.
Let's first talk about something that affects everyone, stress. No matter what age you are we all experience some type of stress in our life. Whether it is physical or emotional, stress can affect more than just our moods. It affects our sleep quality, our hormones, thyroid, adrenals, and our physical body and pain levels.
Stress is something that we don’t necessarily see the immediate negative effects from but must be addressed as it can lead to a cascade of symptoms and illnesses.
When it comes to women’s health, considering healthy whole body care is the only way to really dig in and treat the root issues. Most pain, discomfort, stress, and tension are caused by an underlying problem. At Health in Motion chiropractic we help provide a total body approach to women’s health to create a healthier life.
There are few Women who aren’t struggling with stress in their life. While many Women look like they are doing well, most have health struggles they aren’t readily showing. You might think your struggles are small and manageable, but they can increase and worsen without care addressing the cause of the problem. Many women don’t realize just how much they are actually putting up with.
Once you experience regular chiropractic care, functional medicine, and health strategies, you may be shocked at how different you feel. We see a wide range of Women with varying states of health, comfort, and stress. Some of the most common struggles for women we treat include:
Stress from Parenting
Stress from Working
Low Energy Levels
If you are dealing with any of these problems, you will likely benefit from chiropractic and functional medicine. At Health In Motion Chiropractic, we care for Women who struggle with a wide variety of personal struggles, injuries, diseases, disabilities and more. Something as seemingly small as mood swings or neck stiffness may be due to an imbalance in the body or diet.
We provide in depth testing to find the root cause of your symptoms. At our office in Debary these are some of the tests we offer:
The DUTCH test: Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones
This advanced hormone testing was developed to improve on available hormone testing options. DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites.
Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin (6-OHMS), 8-OHdG, neurotransmitter metabolites and six organic acids. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.
Gut Testing- GI effect comprehensive stool test: An advanced stool test that provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers, this test offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome.
Nutrient Status- NutrEval: (First Morning Void) test identifies key nutritional deficiencies. The NutrEval evaluates overall nutritional status to determine personalized supplementation needs for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients.
The NutrEval is an advanced diagnostic tool to guide nutritional therapies, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions. Select genomics biomarkers may be added to the profile for enhanced personalization of therapies.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy has become more popular since it does not require drugs or any surgery. With Chiropractic care from your chiropractor, Dr. Auchter, you will be able to go through your pregnancy with less pain, discomfort, and stress which all help to lead to a healthier pregnancy.
Low back pain during pregnancy is quite common. In fact, between 50-75% of all pregnant women will experience low back pain. The pain is usually caused by rapid changes in weight, posture, gait, and hormones.
The average woman gains between 20-40 pounds throughout pregnancy. This weight gain moves your center of gravity forward, causing your pelvis to tilt and your lower back to sway, this places excessive stress on the ligaments, discs, and joints of your spine.
Pregnancy-related low back pain typically starts between the fifth and seventh month of pregnancy, although a significant portion of women experiences pain sooner. Symptoms often begin at the base of your spine and may radiate into your buttock or thigh. Discomfort is often aggravated by prolonged standing, sitting, coughing, or sneezing.
Your symptoms may increase throughout the day, and some patients report nighttime pain that disturbs their sleep. The extremes of activity seem to contribute to pregnancy-related low back pain – with increased risk for both “sedentary” and “physically demanding” lifestyles. Patients who have suffered from back pain prior to pregnancy are more than twice as likely to re-develop back pain during pregnancy.
Unfortunately, pregnancy-related low back pain occurs at a time when your medical treatment options are limited. Not surprisingly, over 90% of prenatal health care providers would recommend drug-free treatment, including the type of alternative therapy provided in this office. Studies have shown that chiropractic manipulation provides significant relief of pregnancy-related low back pain. Almost 75% of women undergoing chiropractic care report significant pain reduction with improved ability to function.
