Mention chiropractic and most people associate it with relieving back and neck pain. While chiropractic is indeed incredibly effective when it comes to addressing such pain, it can do so much more. Many people aren’t aware that chiropractic could assist with infertility challenges.
If you haven’t been able to conceive but have been told by fertility doctors that nothing is wrong, chiropractic is a practical and entirely natural choice. If there are spinal subluxations or spinal misalignments that are causing an abnormal neurological signal, these areas can be detected and corrected by a chiropractor.
By correcting spinal subluxations there is an improvement in spinal-neural function which can positively impact the neurological function to the reproductive system in both women and men.
Working out regularly, eating a clean, healthy diet, drinking plenty of pure water, and maintaining an ideal body weight are also important if you are trying to conceive. At Compass Family Chiropractic, we can provide exercise and nutrition guidance.
A small percentage of couples with infertility seek IVF treatment. According to the article, “Infertility and Chiropractic Care” on the American Pregnancy Association website, chiropractic care “can greatly improve the chances of successful medical procedures such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).”
Once you know you are pregnant, we encourage you to continue prenatal chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy. Chiropractic can alleviate sciatica, back pain, headaches, heartburn and many other uncomfortable symptoms that often occur during pregnancy.
