Women’s Health

Dr. Beck has a specific interest in using functional medicine, chiropractic care, and yoga therapy to help women achieve vibrant health throughout their entire lives. Whether it’s as an athlete, menstrual support, pre-conception nutrition planning, infertility support, pregnancy, postnatal support, or menopausal/post-menopausal support.

Services Offered

Athletes: the athletic lifestyle is one that can create tight muscles and some achiness in addition to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Regular musculoskeletal care can prevent injury and keep you doing your sport. In the case of sprains or strains, we can reduce the healing time so that you get get back on the field (or bike or track or pool). In these visits, we explore nutrition as well as chiropractic modalities such as spinal and extra spinal adjusting, ultrasound, IFC, and so on.

Menstrual support: irregular periods, intense menstrual cramps, low back pain. Too many women end up taking over-the-counter pain medication when many negative symptoms can be relieved through more natural methods. Correcting menstrual imbalances earlier in life may help ease the transition into menopause. In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, decreasing toxic loads as well as chiropractic modalities.

Pre-conception nutrition: starting a family (or growing one!) is an exciting transition. In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, chiropractic modalities, stress-reduction, and decreasing toxic loads to create a nourishing home for not only you, but new life as well.

Infertility support: some women explore many avenues for healing when it’s challenging to conceive. If you’re younger than 35, infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant after 1 year of intercourse without contraception (6 months for women over 35 years old). In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, chiropractic modalities such as spinal adjustments and massage, stress-reduction, and decreasing toxic loads.

Pregnancy: the female body goes through a lot of change over the course of 9 months. As her center of gravity shifts, she’ll often accommodate the changes in ways that increase tension and joint dysfunction (where the bony joints become “stuck”) in the low back and pelvis. Receiving regular musculoskeletal care can improve the function of the low back and pelvis so that when it’s time for the physiological birthing, baby can move through the birth canal with as much ease as possible. In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, chiropractic modalities specific for the pregnant mama including round ligament stretching and gentle adjusting, and stress-reduction techniques.

Postnatal support: once baby is a separate unit, mamas experience another body transition in the 4th trimester. In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, chiropractic modalities, and stress-reduction techniques. Baby is encouraged to come with mom.

Menopausal/post-menopausal support: as women approach 50, hormonal changes eventually stop the monthly menstrual cycle. Women can often feel irritable, achy, and have back pain, headaches, hot-flashes, trouble sleeping. In these visits, we explore nutrition, movement, chiropractic modalities, and stress-reduction techniques.
