Osteopathic View -- Menopause

Most women experience the great hormonal changes of this period of life between the ages of 45 and 55. There are large organic changes, manifesting in a multitude of symptoms. In the ovaries, change already occurs in the fourth decade of a woman's life: scleroses of vessels, decrease in the number of follicles, and lowered response to hormones from the hypophysis.

We noticed that many female clients with shoulder stiffness were in perimenopause or menopause. It is known that estrogen is metabolized by the liver and can become partly toxic to the liver. This could explain why the periarthritis humeroscapular is in women is often localized on the right side.

Women are mostly affected by Carpal tunnel syndrome before or during menopause. The unbearable, partly paroxysmal, nightly pains send them to the doctor. If we seek osteopathic neck and shoulder treatment on the cervical or brachial plexus and/or the median nerve that can achieve remarkable results as well.

It is important to keep in mind that menopause is a process that can last for two to three years or longer. These may include hot flashes, sweats, emotional ups and downs, as well as digestive, skin, and joint problems.

It can be very helpful to check up with your local osteopathic for the organ mobility fasciae work for the liver, intestines, kidney and uterus. It is also important to keep stretching and swimming . Stay positive strong mind and stay active.
