Women's Health Issues

Balanced Body Chiropractic understands Women and their health. Women’s health issues are complex, sometimes interfere with daily life and can be debilitating. Chiropractic care may assist women in addressing areas such as period pain and post natal complications.

Medically diagnosed women’s health issues can be complex to treat and may benefit from chiropractic care. In 1999, Dr Aybar became one of the founding members of E.C.C.A., Endometriosis Care Centre of Australia; the first multidisciplinary approach to women’s health that incorporated chiropractic and alternative medicine. Whilst many women’s health issues are related to hormonal factors, some are complicated by trauma, medication or due to altered neurological input from the spine.
