Chiropractic Care Improves Fertility



Did you know that chiropractic care has been shown to improve fertility? This is such a common experience that my fellow chiropractor colleagues and I have seen over many years - I couldn't tell you how many times I've heard of cases firsthand of people who struggled to have a baby, and then successfully conceived after getting regular chiropractic care. I even knew a couple who wasn't actively trying to get pregnant, because one of them was told by a doctor that he was sterile and would never be able to have children; to everyone's surprise, his partner became pregnant after they both started receiving regular chiropractic care. They joked that chiropractic should come with a warning: "may lead to 'miraculous' pregnancy, even if a medical doctor told you you're infertile!" The evidence isn't just anecdotal - there is an abundance of research that demonstrates chiropractic care improving fertility (references below).

How does this happen? Chiropractic is not a cure or treatment for anything except misalignments of the spine - but because the spine houses the nervous system, which controls every organ and function in the body, we see improvements in a myriad of body functions as a downstream effect of optimizing nervous system function, including our hormones, reproductive systems, and every other system that impacts fertility.

An article in the most recent issue of Pathways to Family Wellness magazine described a case in which a couple had been trying for five years to conceive naturally, and had improved their diets, added regular light exercise, and stress management techniques, but it wasn't until they started regular chiropractic care that they finally conceived a child together! To be clear: diet, nutrition, exercise, and stress management are ALL important pieces of the picture of health, but without addressing whole-body nervous system function with chiropractic care, the picture just isn't complete. A healthy nervous system is what ties everything together and makes sure all parts of the body are functioning at their best. Can people conceive healthy babies without chiropractic? Of course they can. But if a couple is struggling with infertility, getting their spines checked and nervous systems optimized through chiropractic care could be what's missing.
