Can Chiropractic Help With Infertility?

Table of Contents

Infertility is a common issue that many couples face. It can be both extremely frustrating and devastatingly heartbreaking to struggle to conceive. According to statistics, over 7 million women, or roughly 12 percent of women across the country, struggle to get pregnant and stay pregnant. For these women, getting the help they desperately desire can be even more discouraging as a medical diagnosis for infertility isn’t given until after one full year of having unprotected intercourse with no successful pregnancy. Month after month, women who struggle with infertility are left to wonder if they are doing something wrong and what more can be done to bring new life into this world. After trying unsuccessfully, many couples turn to other options for conceiving a child, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI), or even possible exploratory surgery. These procedures are beneficial for some but only have about a 30% success rate. Not only is there a low chance of success, but these procedures are costly and can come with many negative or unpleasant side effects. Thankfully, there is hope for many who wish to conceive without invasive procedures with chiropractic care from a New Orleans chiropractor.

What Causes My Infertility Issues?

The question that crosses the mind of many women is what is causing infertility in the first place. The first process is to find out whether or not infertility is due to a health concern with the man or the woman. There are only three main causes of male infertility: gonad issues, a pituitary disorder, or a sperm transport disorder. For women, the issues of infertility can be much more complex. Female infertility can be caused by ovulation issues, cysts on the ovaries, a hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems, Fallopian tube problems, weight gain, alcohol or drug use, or uterine concerns such as scar tissue, endometriosis, or polyps. Even after significant testing, causes of infertility may still be unknown. One such cause that should also be considered is nervous system dysfunction.

Chiropractic Care Addresses Nervous System Dysfunction

The function of the central nervous system is vital to the function of the entire body. Spinal misalignments can cause nerve interference that doesn’t allow proper communication between the spine and the rest of the body. This can lead to chaos and dysfunction within the body, including the reproduction system. Infertility can be linked back to spinal misalignments. Thankfully, regular visits to a New Orleans chiropractor can restore spinal health to increase overall health of the body. Many couples have been able to conceive after months or years of trying with the help of New Orleans chiropractor Dr. Jeff Vitenas.

Chiropractic Research for Infertility

Case studies support consistent chiropractic care for infertility issues. Correcting spinal misalignments can help couples conceive successfully and with no intervention or procedures. Multiple case studies have shown that couples with infertility issues have been found to have spinal misalignments, leading to dysfunction of the reproductive systems. After being under consistent chiropractic care, many of these couples were able to conceive and carry a pregnancy to full term.

If you are struggling with infertility, chiropractic care may be the answer you have been searching for. Not only is chiropractic beneficial for infertility and pregnancy, but it also improves overall health and quality of life as well.
