Menopause is a normal transition experienced by all women as they age. We believe, that menopause doesn’t have to be difficult. The most common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are hot flashes, night sweats and sleep issues.

If you are having menopause symptoms like hot flashes, irregular periods or mood changes, you might wonder whether you should take some type of menopause hormone therapy (MHT). Be cautious of hormone replacement therapy, research has shown that this once common menopause treatment carries significant risks and can increase your risk of breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

Chiropractic can provide a drug-free solution to relieving the symptoms of menopause. Every function of the body is controlled by the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine to remove pressure and interference from the central nervous system, allowing it to express itself freely and function optimally. The goal is to normalize the function of the body. Many women experience a decrease in menopausal symptoms with regular chiropractic visits.

Over the past 18 years, at Advantage Chiropractic thousands of women have found chiropractic to be the answer to a smooth transition with menopause.


The nerves that coordinate with our reproductive organs originate in the low back. Fertility health can be affected when the spine is misaligned. These misalignments interfere with the nerves going to the reproductive organs and to the systems that coordinate the delivery of hormones, preventing their normal function and contributing to hormone imbalance.

In the traditional approach to infertility, the importance the nervous system is often overlooked. We believe that this should be addressed first and foremost.

Fertility health, conception, and birth are controlled in large part by the nervous system.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, “In many cases, fertility issues may be associated with improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress and poor lifestyle habits.

Chiropractors are nervous system specialists and reducing interference in the nervous system is our primary goal.

“Your body is an amazing creation that can accomplish numerous miraculous tasks including creating new life. These miraculous tasks are accomplished under the direction of the nervous system.”
