Women suffer a number of menopausal symptoms during 40s and late 50s, which are emotional and physical in nature. They rely on various medicines and other treatments for relief. Hormone Replacement Therapy is a common treatment for menopause; however, it does not come without risks. Treating menopausal symptoms with synthetic estrogen and progesterone may lead to ovarian and breast cancer. Therefore, women are turning to natural treatments such as Chiropractic Therapy. Some of the common menopausal symptoms include
- Hot Flashes
- Back Pain
- Joint Pain
Often menopausal problems occur due to misalignments in spine, which affect the nerves that control the relationship between spine, lower back, hormonal and reproductive system. Unlike medicines, chiropractic is more effective and does not have any side effects. This is the reason that women often turn to this alternative treatment, which is non-invasive, natural, and drug free. A chiropractor removes the nerve interference and restores the function of reproductive system.
How Chiropractic helps in relieving menopausal symptoms
Disturbed bodies affect the hormonal and stress response system; and chiropractic treatment releases the pressure on the nerves that connect to spine. A chiropractor detects dislocation and offers treatment to repair nervous system. He treats every patient differently, as different techniques are useful for reducing particular symptoms.
Usually chiropractors treat the patients with hands; however, they may also use light, ultrasound, heat, and other special instruments as a part of treatment procedure. Often there is misconception among women that the treatment is painful; however, it is not true. The treatment is, in fact, relaxing and this is the reason that a lot many women are choosing chiropractic care for treating their menopausal symptoms.
