Infertility rates are skyrocketing in the West. In fact, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), some 6% of American women age 15-44 are now unable to conceive on their own.

Additionally, a 2015 study, one authored by the Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey, finds that there’s been a 65% increase in the use of In vitro fertilisation (IVF) since 2003.

Now, many theories exist as to why there’s been such a sharp rise.

I’m not here to discuss such reasons; I’m here to offer another potential antidote.

Chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care May Help with Infertility

Believe it or not, according to a case study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, chiropractic care may help combat infertility.

The study observed two female participants, one 28, the other 37. Each woman had experienced a motor vehicle accident that included cervical trauma. Both also suffered from neuroendocrine issues (infertility) at the time of examination.

For the study, each woman received regular upper cervical chiropractic care. The care included high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustments according to the Blair Upper Cervical Technique protocol.

In other words, spinal adjustments that focus on misalignment in the neck.

Amazingly, not only did both women enjoy relief from their chronic neck pain, but each woman was then able to conceive, without any additional fertility support.

In Conclusion

What’s this mean for you?

Well, if you’re a woman having difficulty trying to conceive, and you’re leery of a Western Medicine approach to infertility…

Chiropractic care may provide an alternative solution.

So says the research.

Dr. Pete’s 2 cents:

Regardless if you have infertility problems or not, it is important to get your spine checked on a regular basis for vertebral subluxations as it will help your body just plain work better as it will be able to communicate with itself better.  Chiropractic helps your body more easily make the right chemicals in the right quantities at the right times.  This is why it can help with infertility issues.  But don’t stop getting adjusted because your infertility problems go away or don’t go away.  Get adjusted so your body can just plain work better.
