When it comes to female infertility, did you know that chiropractic therapy has been shown to work wonders?
A recent case study examined how the chiropractic care of a 23-year-old woman who’d been experiencing troubles with infertility and amenorrhea, as well as had a six-year history of taking birth control pills while struggling with low back pain and ever-worsening numbness in her legs, allowed her to experience significant relief. This paper also evaluates the literature of eleven separate case studies dealing with females who struggled with infertility who became pregnant following chiropractic care.
The 23 year-old woman underwent chiropractic care to improve her overall health, while hanging onto the hope that she might be able to bear a child. During her physical exam, there was a six-week history of numbness and tingling in her left foot, and in less than one month, the random bouts of numbness was felt in both of her legs and feet. The patient was then referred to a neurologist for further consultation.
Evaluation protocols of Diversified Technique were used to find and fix vertebral subluxations for the first two-and-a-half months of care, with Toggle/Webster Technique protocols being used after. The patient experienced her first natural menstrual cycle just three-and-a-half months into care and found out she was pregnant one month after that– just four-and-a-half months after initiation of chiropractic therapy. An ultrasound examination confirmed the pregnancy not long after.
Noticed resolution of the patient’s symptoms was acquired related with a reduction in subluxation findings at different levels. More research is needed to evaluate the safety, cost, and effectiveness of chiropractic care in women’s reproductive and overall health, but initial conclusions look extremely promising.
