dc.description.abstractIntroduction: Insomnia is a frequent postmenopausal symptom and may be due to hormonal changes, depressive states related to this period of life, hot flashes or nocturia. Chiropractic care has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of these symptoms.Objectives: the aim of this study was to review chiropractic interventions in postmenopausal women as a possible management approach to menopausal symptoms and insomnia.Methods: A PubMed search was conducted by cross-referencing the key words insomnia, sleep, and menopause with chiropractic. the search used an end date of January 2014 and retrieved 17 articles.Results: Three articles were eligible for the study. All epidemiological data from large surveys demonstrated a lack of evidence for chiropractic intervention as a complementary and alternative therapeutic method in the management of menopausal symptoms and insomnia.Conclusions: There is no evidence for the effectiveness of chiropractic intervention as a complementary and alternative therapy for menopausal symptoms and insomnia. Further studies with proper methodological designs are warranted. (C) 2014 Published by Elsevier Ireland Ltd.en
