A recent study that came out in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - Chiropractic in 2012 looked to describe the results of chiropractic care of a female struggling to conceive, and to provide a current review of the literature on infertility and chiropractic. The study included a 29-year-old female schoolteacher with an 8-year history of infertility presented to a chiropractic clinic for care. She revealed during the history that her menstrual cycle typically lasted 40-60 days, on average.
The results of the study were astounding! Vertebral subluxation (what Chiropractors adjust) was found at S4 sacral segment, and specific, high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts were delivered according to Gonstead protocol. After 4 weeks of care, she reported being pregnant.
Conclusion of the study: Chiropractic adjustments, resulting in the reduction of vertebral subluxation, appeared to be beneficial for a woman previously deemed infertile.
What a great find and this has been my experience for many folks in the office over the course of my 13 years in practice. If you or someone you know is having difficulties with fertility, even if taking fertility drugs, it is worth an examination to see what Chiropractic can do to help.
Have a blessed day!
