Richmond Menopausal Womens Bones Benefit from Probiotics

October 10, 2017

Chiropractors know bones. No bones about it! Young bones and mature bones invite the tender care provided by attentive chiropractors like your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic. The more mature bones - especially menopausal bones - that hurt because of osteoporosis especially are fond of the soothing care of your Richmond chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic intake are encouraged at Johnson Chiropractic while pain-relieving Richmond chiropractic treatment is provided.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women isn’t a sudden onset condition. Osteoporosis is the culmination of years of bone loss beginning 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 grow old. If the bones are built up sufficiently in youth, they will persist in aging better. If the bones didn’t get that built up, they’ll suffer - more for some than others – as they get older. Supplementation and dietary intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium are often suggested for young women to help fend off Richmond osteoporosis related to menopause. 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 benefit our Richmond osteoporosis patients.


Johnson Chiropractic helps female Richmond 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 mix of probiotic and bioavailable isoflavone treatment was tested 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. Adding calcium, magnesium, and calcitriol demonstrated 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 slowed the rate of bone turnover. (2) Johnson Chiropractic is all about natural tactics that help bone health, Richmond premenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal bones.
