Chicago Menopausal Women’s Bones Benefit from Probiotics

Chiropractors know bones. No bones about it! Young bones and older bones welcome the gentle care provided by attentive chiropractors like your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care. The more mature bones - especially menopausal bones - that ache because of osteoporosis really enjoy the soothing care of your Chicago chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic consumption are encouraged at Chiropractic Care while pain-relieving Chicago chiropractic treatment is provided.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women is not a sudden onset condition. Osteoporosis is the culmination of years of bone loss starting when women (and men) are young. It is like a savings account. The deposits made into the bone health account as young people are effective when those young people mature. If the bones are built up well in youth, they will persist in aging better. If the bones did not get that built up, they’ll suffer - more for some than others – as they age. Supplementation and dietary intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium are often suggested for young women to help ward off menopausal osteoporosis. For more mature Chicago women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a mixture of those same nutrients are too…plus a twist! Chiropractic Care enjoys sharing these useful new, research-documented treatment twists to assist our Chicago osteoporosis patients.


Chiropractic Care assists female Chicago osteoporosis patients make do with their condition from pain-easing treatment with Cox Technic, a most gentle spinal manipulation your bones will really appreciate, to usual nutritional supplements and new ones like probiotics. To potentially prevent and treat osteoporosis without the increased risk of cancer associated with hormone replacement therapy, a combination of probiotic and bioavailable isoflavone treatment was attempted in the form of red clover extract. It succeeded! A year of taking it twice a day displayed a reduction in bone mineral density (BMD) loss, improvement of bone turnover, a better estrogen metabolite profile, and more equol production in post-menopausal women with osteopenia. Including calcium, magnesium, and calcitriol proved to be even more effective.  (1) Another article reports that just adding a multispecies probiotic supplement for 6 months showed positive effects on postmenopausal women’s bone health as it reduced the rate of bone turnover. (2) Chiropractic Care is all about natural approaches that help bone health, Chicago premenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal bones.
