Richmond Menopausal Womens Bones Benefit from Probiotics

Chiropractors know bones. No bones about it! Young bones and mature bones appreciate the tender care delivered by attentive chiropractors like your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic. The more mature bones - especially menopausal bones - that ache because of osteoporosis really are fond of the gentle care of your Richmond chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic intake are shared at Johnson Chiropractic while pain-relieving Richmond 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’s like a savings account. The deposits made into the bone health account as young people are effective when those young people grow old. If the bones are built up sufficiently in youth, they will endure aging better. If the bones didn’t 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 Richmond women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a combination of those same nutrients are too…plus a twist! Johnson Chiropractic enjoys sharing these helpful new, research-documented treatment twists to assist our Richmond osteoporosis patients.


Johnson Chiropractic helps female Richmond osteoporosis patients make do with their condition from pain-relieving treatment with Cox Technic, a really gentle spinal manipulation your bones will really appreciate, to common 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 proved to be good! A year of taking it twice a day showed a lessening for 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) Johnson Chiropractic is all about natural tactics that help bone health, Richmond premenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal bones.
