  Title Menopause, chiropractic examination and treatment, and salivary hormone levels: Correlations and outcomes
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2013 Sep;43(3):107-120
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Introduction: Fluctuating hormone levels in women at the time of menopause is a common and potentially disabling problem that is frequently confronted in chiropractic clinical practice. Although this problem is well recognized, it is often misdiagnosed and poorly treated.

Methods: Correlations between a chiropractic physical examination procedure and salivary hormone tests for 10 women experiencing peri-menopausal and post-menopausal discomforts are reported here. Chiropractic treatment for disturbances associated with menopause in these patients was evaluated with the Menopause Rating Scale, a validated outcome measure used in the treatment of menopause.

Results: As part of this approach we have observed that a significant subset of patients with peri- and post-menopausal disorders and abnormal hormone levels demonstrate distinct neuromuscular impairments that can be detected using the manual muscle test (MMT) employed in applied kinesiology (AK).

Discussion: The MMT findings revealed strong correlations with the salivary hormone tests. Treatment based upon these finding led to substantial improvements of the menopausal symptoms reported.
