Menopause is the cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle. According to the National Institutes of Health, “A woman is said to have completed natural menopause when she has not had a period for 12 consecutive months”.
Typically women begin natural menopause in their early 50’s, and this phase of life can be accompanied by a multitude of various unpleasant symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, depression, joint pain, and fatigue.
Fortunately, Chiropractic care has been demonstrated to help. In a 1994 study of 30 patients with menopausal symptoms, 15 received adjustments and 15 received placebo therapy. The
adjustment group experienced a significant drop in symptoms compared with control.
This is amazing! As your body is better able to heal and function as a result of chiropractic adjustments, is it any wonder that symptoms will be reduced and subside when your body can better regulate its hormone control?
