New York Menopausal Women’s Bones Benefit from Probiotics

Chiropractors know bones. No bones about it! Young bones and older bones appreciate the tender care provided by attentive chiropractors like your New York chiropractor at Dr. Gary Stefanick. The older bones - especially menopausal bones - that ache because of osteoporosis especially enjoy the gentle care of your New York chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic consumption are shared at Dr. Gary Stefanick while pain-relieving New York chiropractic treatment is provided.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women is not a sudden onset condition. Osteoporosis is the finale of years of bone loss commencing when women (and men) are young. It’s like a savings account. The deposits made into the bone health account as young people pay off when those young people grow old. 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’ll 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 menopausal osteoporosis. For older New York women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a combination of those same nutrients are too…plus a twist! Dr. Gary Stefanick relishes sharing these useful new, research-documented treatment twists to benefit our New York osteoporosis patients.


Dr. Gary Stefanick assists female New York osteoporosis patients cope with their condition from pain-relieving treatment with Cox Technic, a really gentle spinal manipulation your bones will so like, to common 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 combination of probiotic and bioavailable isoflavone treatment was attempted in the form of red clover extract. It worked well! 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. Adding calcium, magnesium, and calcitriol demonstrated 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 reduced the rate of bone turnover.
