How Your Chiropractor May Be Optimising Your Fertility

Did you know that in Australia, approximately one in six couples that are of reproductive age have issues with infertility? So, what does that statistic have to do with you and your chiropractic care?

What does a chiropractor do?

Many people assume that a chiropractor only exists to deal with your back pain and neck stiffness, but really the major goal of chiropractic care is focused on your overall health, on restoring and optimising your body to its full potential allowing you to be the healthiest version of yourself possible.

The possible cause of your infertility

One cause of infertility that has been established comes down to the nervous system, the master of all nerve communication in the body, not functioning correctly. The reason for the improper functioning of the nervous system could lie in what your chiropractor refers to as a “subluxation”, which your chiropractor specialises in locating and correcting.

These subluxations play havoc with the nerve communication in your body which can also include the nerve communication between the reproductive organs and the central nervous system. This disruption to the nerve flow may result in the peristaltic activity being decreased, meaning the egg released from the fallopian tube has a more difficult time getting to its desired location.

It isn’t just women who may benefit from chiropractic care. Increasing the overall health and wellbeing of the male may also help your chances of increasing your fertility rates. Two healthy partners are better than one.

What can a chiropractor do?

Chiropractic care can’t offer you the cure or even a specific treatment for infertility, but it can help you achieve greater wellness within your body, which in turn may lead to helping your fertility issues. Chiropractic care does reduce the stress and interference throughout the body, especially in the nervous system, which in turn could have a positive impact on your body’s ability to conceive.

More research needs to be conducted into this area, but the studies that have been conducted are looking promising.
