Chiropractic Benefits for Pregnancy
Healthy Pregnancy Following Chiropractic Care in Ovarian Cancer Patient, After 2 Years of Infertility: A Case Report
Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health Chiropractic, Volume 2012
Objective: This case report describes the chiropractic care of a woman with a previous history of ovarian cancer and infertility who successfully conceived.
Clinical Features: A 28 year old woman with a two year history of infertility following ovarian cancer and subsequent laparoscopy. Patient presented to office seeking improvements to overall health in order to increase chances of fertility. Patient had previously sought conventional medical treatments for infertility including Clomid and Perganol – both proved to be unsuccessful. At the time of physical exam patient had a chief complaint of low back pain and infertility.
Intervention and Outcomes: Initial examination including orthopedic, neurologic, radiologic, and chiropractic analysis all performed to determine patient’s need for chiropractic care. At each visit motion and static palpation, visual observation, and shunt stabilization test were performed to detect vertebral subluxation. Treatment plan and examination protocols consisted of full-spine chiropractic adjustments.
Conclusion: Patient conceived naturally following her completion of 14 sessions of chiropractic care. Patient carried a viable pregnancy to full term with continued chiropractic care. Chiropractic care may facilitate an increase in autonomic function and further studies are encouraged to determine the relationship of chiropractic to the restoration of reproductive system function.
Healthy Pregnancy In A Previously Infertile Patient Following D.N.F.T. Chiropractic Care: A Case Report
Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research, Volume 2003
Objective: This case study describes the chiropractic care and progress of a female patient with a history of infertility; examining the relationship between D.N.F.T. specific care and the patient’s clinical improvement and ultimate success in becoming pregnant.
Clinical Features: A 32-year-old female with a history of infertility sought chiropractic care in November of 2001. She had attempted to become pregnant since August 1999, with no success. She had received conventional medical treatment, including detailed fertility testing, artificial insemination, and treatment with the fertility drug Clomid. On October 17, 2001, the patient underwent in vitro fertilization, which failed. She sought chiropractic care three weeks later and an intitial evaluation was performed on November 3, 2001. The case history revealed additional complaints, including endometriosis, low back pain, and frequent headaches. Surface EMG showed significant muscle asymmetry, with a marked elevation of muscle tension on the left side in the area of L3. Chiropractic Assessment, Intervention and Outcomes: D.N.F.T. chiropractic analysis and correction were performed over the next six weeks and during this time, the patient’s secondary complaints of low back pain and headaches improved dramatically. A re-examination was performed on December 28, 2001. Surface EMG showed a substantial improvement in muscle symmetry, as well as a reduction in the muscle tension previously noted at L3. The patient’s fertility specialists noted that her estrogen levels, endometrial thickness, and cervical mucus levels were all at more favorable levels than at the time of the first in vitro attempt. A second attempt at in vitro fertilization was made on February 17, 2002, and the patient had a positive pregnancy test on March 2, 2002. She remained under chiropractic care and was in her 34th week of pregnancy at the time of this writing.
Conclusion: The human body is designed to be healthy and to reproduce. Impairment of this ability indicates dysfunction on a fundamental level. Subluxations of the spine and the associated nervous system dysfunction can hinder proper function of body systems. This study serves to document the application of chiropractic care and the subsequent response, including restoration of proper reproductive function, in a 32 year old woman previously diagnosed as infertile.
