Infertility is a hard issue for anyone to deal with. Not only is it painful to long for a positive pregnancy test each month, but fertility treatments can also be very painful too. There are many factors that can play into why a woman is infertile, but researchers have been looking outside of the reproductive system for better answers.
Many women have approached chiropractic care for help and are wonderfully surprised when they do get pregnant. There have even been many cases of infertile women going to the chiropractor for issues not related to fertility, such as back pain or headaches. These women are also surprised to find that they are pregnant shortly after their treatment.
So Is Chiropractic Care The Answer to Infertility?
Chiropractic care does not cure infertility. However, manual adjustments could help fix distortions in the body that are affecting fertility and the proper functions of the reproductive system.
The placement of the spine directly relates to the placement of the reproductive organs. So in many cases where women thought they were infertile, these were just cases of their body not being aligned properly. Dr. Behrendt says, “The nerves to the reproductive system run through the spine, and if there’s a distortion, it can affect fertility.”
If a woman has infertility issues due to damage to the reproductive organs or due to another factor unrelated to the spine, then chiropractic adjustments will not increase her chance for conceiving.
Why Chiropractic Care Should Be the First Choice
There is no guarantee that seeing a chiropractor will help you get pregnant. However, it is definitely worth a try. Chiropractic care is significantly more affordable, safer, and less painful and time-consuming than fertility treatments.
If several chiropractic adjustments don’t work, you could still walk away with other health benefits, such as diminished back pain, better sleep, and more. If chiropractic care does not work for fertility, then it may help get your body in optimal health for when you do receive fertility treatments. The best thing about chiropractic care is that there are no negative side effects or risks. Therefore, your body will always benefit from adjustments.
