Women and Families
Women experience different health conditions than men. Wider pelvic angles can make us more susceptible to knee and pelvic pain, pregnancy can change our bodies permanently causing an alteration in normal function. Headaches can be common during and around our menstrual cycles and medications that we are taking may affect us differently than men due to our hormones and differing genetic makeup.
Women often assume the role of Health Care Team Leader in their family and are responsible for making decisions about the type of health care their family needs. It is often our responsibility to ensure that our families receive proper nutrition, adequate sleep, good dental hygiene, balanced nutrition, regular physical fitness and emotional support and stability. These responsibilities can be overwhelming sometimes and can leave women little time to pay attention to their own health needs.
All of these factors can impact the levels of stress women face on a daily basis. It is amazing how frequently emotional stress will express itself as physical symptoms in your body. On a daily basis, we treat women who are experiencing symptoms due to high stress in their work and personal lives, women who are athletic and proactive in their health, women experiencing changes in their bodies during pregnancy and around menopause.
