McHenry Menopausal Womens Bones Benefit from Probiotics

Chiropractors know bones. No bones about it! Young bones and mature bones appreciate the gentle care provided by caring chiropractors like your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. The more mature bones - particularly menopausal bones - that ache due to osteoporosis especially like the soothing care of your McHenry chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic consumption are encouraged at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic while pain-relieving McHenry chiropractic treatment is provided.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women isn’t a rapid onset condition. Osteoporosis is the finale of years of bone loss starting when women (and men) are young. It’s 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’ll persist in aging better. If the bones did not get that built up, they will be painful - more for some than others – as they get older. Supplementation and dietary intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium are frequently recommended for young women to help ward off McHenry osteoporosis related to menopause. For older McHenry women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a combination of those same nutrients are too…plus a twist! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic enjoys sharing these useful new, research-documented treatment twists to assist our McHenry osteoporosis patients.


OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps female McHenry osteoporosis patients manage their condition from pain-relieving treatment with Cox Technic, a most gentle spinal manipulation your bones will so like, to usual nutritional supplements and new ones like probiotics. To potentially prevent and treat osteoporosis without the increased risk of cancer affiliated with hormone replacement therapy, a mix 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 showed 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 states that just adding a multispecies probiotic supplement for 6 months proved to be positive for postmenopausal women’s bone health as it decelerated the rate of bone turnover. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is all about natural approaches that help bone health, McHenry premenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal bones.
