Menopause: How Chiropractic Care & Physical Therapy can Help MN

Menopause SymptomsMenopause is the time in a woman’s life when her period stops. It typically happens naturally, most often after age 45. Menopause occurs because the woman’s ovaries stop the production of certain hormones (estrogen and progesterone). The transition into menopause is referred to perimenopause, and it can start several years before your last menstrual period. After a full year without a period, you have been “through menopause.”

The average age of a woman having her last period is 51, but some women experience their last period in their 40s, and some have it later in their 50s.

Perimenopausal and menopause symptoms include:

  • Change in period duration – shorter or longer, lighter or heavier, with difference of time between them
  • Hot flashes and/or night sweats
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble focusing
  • Less hair on head, more hair on face

Even though these symptoms are not life-threatening, they can be so irritating that they interfere with day to day activities. Discuss with your care providers about how to best manage menopause. Make sure they know your medical history and your family medical history, including whether you are at risk for heart disease, osteoporosis, or breast cancer.

At AdvaCare Clinics in Bloomington, MN we are a clinic with advanced healthcare solutions and have been helping patients with menopause and educating  about  its symptoms and conditions. We combine physical therapy, chiropractic care,  and medical procedures for best results all under one roof. We offer many holistic treatments that can help you with your menopause and gain symptom relief.

Holistic Treatments for Menopause Symptoms in Bloomington MN

When looking at a holistic perspective, menopause is not an illness, but a life transition through which all women go through. However, that does not deny that there are not-so-great symptoms sometimes.

Integrative therapies for menopause seek to ease the difficulties of uncomfortable symptoms. The use of integrative therapies for menopause symptoms is very common. Women who practice them generally find them to be extremely helpful. While  herbal medicine or acupuncture can ease a discomfort like hot flashes, more treatment is needed in order to fulfill full-body restoration. Integrated approaches focus on bringing the body into optimal balance, which will naturally get rid of physical discomfort. This includes mental, emotional, and spiritual balance as well, which is a healthy goal for any phase of life, including menopause.

AdvaCare Clinics offers a rehabilitation approach that focuses on helping patients understand menopause. Based on the needs of the patient, our physical therapists and chiropractors will work with other members of the rehabilitation team to create a  retraining program tailored to your  needs to restore maximum function and mobility to the body.

The therapist may use other holistic treatments to help menopause symptoms including:

  • Massage therapy
  • Heat/ice therapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Acupuncture
  • Nutrition planning
  • Laser Therapy
  • Manual adjustments
  • Exercise
  • and many more…
