Alternative Medicine for Menopause

Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic medicine helps restore the body's ability to heal and balance itself by relieving pressure on the spinal nerve roots that control energy flow throughout the body. The adjunctive therapies used in chiropractic medicine can also help relieve the discomforts of menopause and assist the body in strengthening and supporting itself into the later years. Many chiropractic healing programs also incorporate exercise and diet, acupuncture, massage, homeopathy, and kinesiology.

Back pain due to estrogen deficiency or the beginnings of osteoporosis responds well to spinal manipulation and soft tissue work. Chiropractic is also very effective at reducing headaches and migraines caused by tension and stress, and neck problems by restoring normal joint flexibility, and reducing nerve pressure and muscular tension.

Chiropractors suggest that many women who suffer from menstrual cramps also suffer from spinal problems such as back pain. Gynecological problems happen because of the subluxations (dislocations) in the relationship between the spine, lower back, and the female anatomy. They suggest that there is a direct cause/symptom relationship here.

In one study of 122 women, the majority of dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) sufferers had lower back problems and spinal displacements. This explains why many women who visit a chiropractor for treatment of their back pain report beneficial effects from menstrual cramps as well as other gynecological problems.

Scientific studies have shown that there exists a relationship between spinal health and gynecological problems. In a 1973 study of 496 patients who received spinal care, more than 95 percent experienced relief of general gynecological problems. A 1986 study found spinal care to have a beneficial effect on PMS in particular. In 1990, another study found that "dysfunction of the uterus and structural fixation of the same spinal segments of innervation can be indicative of a somatovisceral reflex.... Adjusting these vertebrae and creating motion in the joints seemed to influence the exiting nerves, restoring proper nervous transmission to the uterus."
