Women's Wellness


Chiropractic for gynecological conditions?

If you think you can only rely on a medical doctor for your women's wellness, think again! The relationship between the spinal column, reproductive system, nervous system, endocrine (hormonal) system and overall health is extensive.

Menstrual and Premenstrual Problems

As a woman, Houston Chiropractor, Jane Noojin understands the wide variety of gynecological related conditions. Many women have discovered the benefits of Chiropractic for the treatment of PMS, bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunctions.

Hysterectomy

Over half of the hysterectomies performed each year in the U.S. may be unnecessary. Furthermore, after surgery, many women experience depression; loss of stamina: loss of sex drive and decreased sexual response; urinary incontinence; bowel problems; icy feet and toes; diminished sensation from the waist down; bone and joint pain; memory loss and other problems. Few doctors warn their patients about the too-common aftereffects of hysterectomy.

Menopause


Menopause is a normal physiological state, but some doctors consider it a disease. Because of this attitude, women are often subjected to drug therapies - such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) - that may have dangerous side effects, including breast cancer and heart problems. It would thus be far better to first explore safer, more natural healing approaches when dealing with the symptoms of menopause.

Years of training and experience, plus sophisticated analysis techniques, enable your Houston Chiropractor, Jane Noojin to detect subluxations, but there are some simple things you can look for to find out if your spine is healthy.

  1. Your heels wear out unevenly. Can be due to uneven leg length or stress along with the length of the spine.
  2. You can't you take a satisfying deep breath. Breath, health, spinal health and energy are interrelated.
  3. Your jaws "click". This can be caused by neck or hip subluxations.
  4. You have to "crack" your neck, back or other joints a lot. Can be caused by areas of your spine that are locked or jammed.
  5. You can't twist or turn your head or hips to either side easily and equally. Reduced range of motion.
  6. You are often fatigued. An unbalanced spine drains your energy.
  7. You have poor concentration. Subluxations affect brain health.
  8. You have low resistance to disease. Subluxations affect your neuroendocrine system which plays an important role in your resistance to disease and your ability to fight infection.
  9. Your foot flares out when walking. This test is easy as long as you don't cheat. Merely look at your feet as you walk. Do they both point forward, or does one foot appear to flare outward or inward? Do both? Foot flare may be a sign of a problem in the lower spine or hips, or meningeal stress in the upper neck or base of the brain.
  10. One leg appears shorter than the other. Keep your shoes on, and lie down. Have someone stand behind you, look down at your feet, and gently push your heels toward your head. Compare where the heels meet the shoes. One foot (it's often the right) may appear anywhere from 1/8" to 1" shorter than the other.
  11. You have poor posture. Stand on two bathroom scales. The weight distribution should be about the same over each foot. If it is not, that's a good sign that your spine, hips or head are off-center.
  12. You have headaches, back aches, sore or tender spots in muscles or joints. Common signs of subluxation.
  13. You have a constant stressful feeling and tension especially in muscles and joints. Muscles are affected by subluxations.
  14. You feel stiffness in your back and neck. Stiffness may be a sign of subluxation damage.
