Women’s health is a vital part of our healthcare system, yet it is often overlooked for the more demanding things in life such as family, work, and social obligations. Studies have found that females frequently prioritise these aspects over their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, resulting in a work-life-health imbalance (1).


Throughout various stage of life, women encounter a spectrum of health issues arising from a range of causes such as accidents, injury, pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal changes and illness. Unfortunately, discussions around women’s health remain stagnant, and so many women believe that certain issues they experience are something to endure, but this is absolutely not the case.


Regular chiropractic care offers an effective way to maintain your health. At DMC health, our chiropractors perform in-depth assessments to identify and diagnose health issues, as well as devise personalised care plans tailored to an individual’s goals.


Why should I consider a Chiropractor?


Regular chiropractic care presents numerous health benefits for women of all ages. At DMC health, our chiropractors perform in-depth assessments to diagnose the underlying causes of your concerns. Chiropractic care can provide pain relief, improve posture, increase range of motion, and reduce stress levels (2).


We commonly address various complaints among our female patients, including:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and back pain

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Sporting and exercise injuries


What can you expect during a chiropractic visit?


Each appointment is tailored to address your specific complaint and symptoms. At DMC Health, our chiropractors customise the session to meet your needs. During your initial visit, expect the consultation to proceed as follows:

  • Detailed History Collection – treatment will begin after we have all the necessary information surrounding your health to make a working diagnosis. This phase involves documenting your symptoms, medical history, and health-related goals.
  • Physical Exam – the exam includes assessment of posture, ranges of motion, and analysis of any areas of pain and discomfort.
  • Diagnostic Tests – If your complaint falls requires further testing or co-management, we’ll refer you to an appropriate healthcare professional for an informed opinion or additional assessments.
  • Chiropractic Treatment – a hands on approach to helping your pain including massage, dry needling, and adjustments to the spine and other parts of your body.
  • Treatment Plan – based on your response to treatment, your chiropractor will work with you to create a plan tailored to your needs. Most individuals will require follow-up visits to check in and facilitate your healing journey.


Chiropractic care is increasingly embraced by women seeking pain relief, stress management, or overall wellness improvement. Many women are turning to chiropractors as primary healthcare providers to optimize their health and wellbeing.
