Chiropractic Care For Infertility

The Fort Collins Chiropractors at Elevate Chiropractic want you to know the positive impact on your health that chiropractic can bring. Take a look at what the latest research shows about the benefits of ongoing chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Benefits for Your Health

Did you know that the benefits of chiropractic care extend to a wide range of health concerns? Chiropractic care is most often associated with neck pain, back pain and spinal issues, but a growing list of research studies demonstrate that the services provided by chiropractors are clinically effective, safe and cost effective.

Take a look at recent studies spotlighted below. They show that ongoing chiropractic care can have positive effects on infertility.

Chiropractic Benefits for Infertility

Successful In Vitro Fertilization in a Poor Responder While Under Network Spinal Analysis Care: A Case Report Senzon SA, J Vertebral Subluxation Research September 14, 2003, pp 1-6.
This case report describes the successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) of a 34 year old female who had one previous aborted In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) attempt prior to Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) care that was attempted due to her partner’s azoospermia.

The patient had been treated medically Mircette (birth control pills), Lupron (a gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist), and Gonal-F (a recombinant FSH). The IVF was cancelled due to poor response. The patient commenced regular NSA care and her body chemistry responded positively so that the next IVF was successful and was followed by a successful pregnancy. The patient is still under NSA care, and is now in her second trimester with normal fetal heart sounds.

The resolution of chronic colitis with chiropractic care leading to increased fertility Blum, CR J Vertebral Subluxation Research August 31, 2003, p 1-5.

A 32-year-old female presented at my office for chiropractic care of her chronic colitis and did not disclose her condition of infertility during the course of care at this office. There appears to be some relationship between chiropractic care and relief of some visceral conditions relating to the colon and female reproductive organs. Chiropractic care including Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), chiropractic manipulative reflex technique (CMRT), and category one block placement and protocol were employed. The patient had her chronic condition of colitis relieved and relatively simultaneously became pregnant after giving up on allopathic fertility treatments that she had undergone for 7 years.

Case Study Reduction of Vertebral Subluxation using Torque Release Technique with Changes in Fertility: Two Case Reports J Vertebral Subluxation Research Anderson-Peacock E., July 19, 2003, pp 1-6.

Two women had been deemed medically infertile and artificial insemination was being considered. Upon presentation, complete chiropractic evaluations were performed which detected spinal subluxations. Torque Release Technique Protocols were utilized for both evaluation and application of care. Adjustments were performed with an instrument, the Integrator, to improve spinal-neural integrity. During the course of chiropractic care both women were able to conceive. Although chiropractic care is not a treatment for infertility, it is postulated that improvement of spinal neural integrity through specific chiropractic adjustments may have contributed to improved homeostasis and physiological adaptation thus allowing the body to express a greater level of health as an outcome.

Insult, interference and infertility: an overview of chiropractic research. Behrendt, M. Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research May 2, 2003, p. 1-8.

This paper reviews 14 retrospective articles involving 15 women aged 22-65. Eleven had no history of pregnancy, nine had previous treatment for infertility, four were undergoing infertility treatments when starting chiropractic care and had a “poor responder undergoing multiple cycles of IVF” (in-vitro fertilization).

Chiropractic care’s successful outcomes are discussed and the various adjusting techniques used are reviewed. /

Below is the story of a California woman who was given a 5 percent chance of ever becoming pregnant, even with vitro procedures, and who became pregnant after chiropractic adjustments.

A Spine Tingling Affair .The Monterey County Herald, Match 1998 Section D Page 1.

Did you hear the one about the woman who went to the chiropractor and got pregnant?

Really, all Karen Bulch wanted was a little neck-and-shoulders adjustment.

But a month after wandering into chiropractor Mark Kimes’ Salina office, the 44-year-old Monterey woman was with child, something she had unsuccessfully been trying to accomplish for 4 ½ years.

Kimes told her it might happen. And if it did, he said it would be within the first few months.

As Dr. Kimes was doing the neck/shoulders/complete personal history examination, he noticed a subluxation in Bulch’s lower back. He wasn’t sure, but Kimes thought after correcting the subluxation that the restored nerve flow may return her ability to become fertile. “I’ve been in practice for 12 years and I’ve seen it happen with many women,” he said.

Manipulative Therapy in Rehabilitation of the Locomotor System, 2nd ed. Lewit K (1991), Butterworth-Heineman, Ltd. Oxford.

“There is growing evidence that female infertility may be attributable to pelvic dysfunction.”

The author quotes a randomized, controlled trial by Volejnikova and Krupicka (1992) in the journal Manuelle Medizin where 34% of the women in the treatment group became pregnant within months compared to 8% in the control group. After the study ended the women in the control group were given spinal care and a further 27% of them became pregnant.

Fertility via the back door. Davidson, M What Doctors Don’t Tell You. March 2001 Vol. 11 No. 12 p.12.

“A couple had lost their third child in a tragic accident and wanted another child to complete their family. They had been trying without success for three years. The woman, who was 38, [initially] received a chiropractic adjustment; her husband was adjusted a few months later. Within 12 months, they had a fine healthy child.”

“My son has been seeing Dr. Dan and Dr. Andres for a couple of months now and we have seen a significant shift in his physical well-being, as well as his mental and emotional states. My son is challenged with certain processing disorders…since working with Elevate Chiropractic he has been able to better handle the stimuli of his classroom, as well as bring up his grades and retain information in his short term memory longer. His physical complaints are all but gone too, and I have seen a visible shift in the alignment of his spine. My son LOVES getting his adjustments and is always excited when it is chiro day, lol. The staff is beyond fabulous and you can feel that everyone there is dedicated to the health and happiness of each patient. Everyone knew our names by the second visit and easily remembers the little details of our treatment plan, and lives in general…making us feel invested in, not only as patients, but as people. We never feel rushed and the Doctors do an excellent job of taking their time, answering questions, and following up. Planning on getting my whole family into their wonderful and caring practice. Thanks so much everybody, keep doing what you do!”

“I have been coming to Elevate for over 2 years now. I suffered from extreme middle back pain, hip and knee pain to the point i thought i was going to need to retire from my hair stylist career. I told myself i would commit to a full year of treatment and well im still going and feeling great. Recommended 100%”

“I have been consistent in attending weekly for 9 months now, and the difference is HUGE! I thought (or got used to) living with lower back pain was normal for my age; but I was wrong. I have seen a great improvement in my mobility, energy levels, and allergies. I originally came in for a concerning throbbing head sensation, but that and many other ailments are gone now. Thank you! Another benefit is that all the staff are kind and treat you like family.”

“The 1st time I entered the Elevate Chiropractic office it was so welcoming and homey it was not like a normal or usual Chriopractice office which I loved and then meeting the staff was even more welcoming they all are so nice. They explained everything that they were going to do and went over my x-rays and scan. They explained the next steps of how they were going to help me get better, I wasn’t a lost cause, they were so positive and they brought my spirits up! Genesis, Amy1 & Amy2 and Dr Andres attended to me that 1st day and continue to do so, they are so friendly, caring and considerate that they make me feel as if I’m part of they’re family! After my 2nd adjustment I was feeling better! I would definitely recommend Elevate Chiropractic to all my friends, family and everyone else who is having any kind of body pain, whether it’s back, shoulders, knees, legs, ankles, joint, muscle spasms, headaches, etc. They even treat infants and children! Come in as a walk in to check it out or even better, call and make an appt I promise you won’t regret it!”
