In the vast world of healthcare, the unique needs and concerns of women have often been pushed into the background. Although disheartening, the reality is that women’s health has not received the attention and conversation that it truly deserves. Despite this disparity, there are healthcare providers that are actively working to close that gap.
One woman-owned clinic that strives to reach out to women and provide them with the care they deserve is Atlas Chiropractic of Boulder. Here, the board-certified Boulder chiropractors realize that many women desire a place where they are heard, understood, and cared for. They desire a place where the social taboos around women’s health like menstruation, menopause, and postpartum life do not exist. These doctors strive to provide an environment that promotes an increase in emotional well-being, physical well-being, and overall wellness. Through an alternative form of care known as upper cervical chiropractic, the doctors at Atlas Chiropractic of Boulder put in the effort to bridge the gap that traditional healthcare often overlooks.
It is not just a symptom
A commonality in the field of alternative treatment is the understanding that healthcare is not just about treating illness. It is not just about getting rid of symptoms. It is much more. This is something that upper cervical chiropractors live by. We search for the root cause of a problem and recognize the physiological intricacies of a woman’s body. We understand that women’s health is not a monolithic concept, but a complex, varied yet beautiful tapestry.
This clinic’s approach combines the specific art of upper cervical chiropractic with empathy. By correcting the misalignment of the spine’s uppermost vertebrae, these Boulder chiropractors aim to not only alleviate physical discomfort but nurture emotional harmony and emotional well-being. We work to be a safe space where women can come to relax, take time to take care of themselves and begin a journey to a life of wellness.
Your emotions matter
Now, everyone knows that chiropractors deal with the bones; but, why do we care about the patient’s emotional well-being and mindset? The answer is simple: true healing requires tending to both the mind and the body. Our doctors’ are primed in the neurology of the human body and hold the realization that when the body is under emotional distress, no matter what medication or treatment is being received, it becomes weaker and more vulnerable. This also means that the nervous system will not be functioning well, so it needs to be strengthened–and that is exactly what we do.
By providing our patient’s with a place that is set up to help them feel at ease, our doctors have the hopes of becoming a solace for them. We provide a period of resting–or even napping–after adjustments because we recognize that the body needs time to take in the adjustment and adapt to the changes taking place. Plus, who doesn’t want a nap at the beginning, middle, or end of their day? By doing so, we give the patients time to themselves to either put a halt to their thoughts or work their way through them. Our doctors recognize how influential emotions are on a person’s overall well-being, and we strive to aid in strengthening that by providing relief from the aches and pains of life.
Menopause: let’s talk about it!
While there are many different experiences that a woman can go through, there is one that holds an unnecessary taboo in society–and that is menopause. In a woman’s life, there are many changes that take place in regard to their hormones. There are fluctuations occurring on a monthly basis and that can take its toll on them. One such change, that is rather large, is menopause. Menopause generally occurs between ages 45-55, but every woman is different.
During this time the female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, decrease. This change in their hormones can cause a multitude of symptoms–one being migraines. This is because these changes are not easy to adapt to and can lead to nervous system dysfunction due to the stress it has on the body. This dysfunction can be from withdrawal from the hormones, the neurotransmitters that estrogen influences being affected, changes in vascular functions, and many more. In order to combat this dysfunction, the doctors at Atlas Chiropractic of Boulder monitor the spine’s alignment and assess the patient’s nervous system. These Boulder chiropractors aim to create a balanced neurological foundation. This, in turn, could help the body navigate hormonal shifts more smoothly and potentially decrease the severity and/or frequency of migraines.
Another goal of the doctors at Atlas Chiropractic of Boulder is to provide empowerment to women and encourage them to take charge of their health. We provide education and encourage open conversation between the patient and the doctor. We hope that women feel comfortable addressing their health concerns freely, no matter how taboo the topic may be in society. From menstruation to cramps to pregnancy to menopause, we want women to feel at home and safe.
Women’s health is not a static destination, but a beautiful journey that is filled with many milestones and challenges. The path toward well-being is unique for every woman, which is why we create personalized care plans for each patient. We are specific in our care and realize that every woman’s body is different and requires a different approach. From creating these personalized care plans to building a space that offers wellness and serenity, our doctors offer women a chance to heal, grow, and embrace their innate resilience.
