Most people associate chiropractic care with the treatment of common pregnancy symptoms like back pain or breech positioning, but did you know that chiropractors can help long before a baby is ever conceived? For women who are having trouble conceiving, their infertility can be a depressing subject; one they have little interest in sharing with any more people than necessary, but a chiropractor may be exactly the right person to turn to when pregnancy tests keep coming back Not Pregnant.
Addressing Infertility Through Whole Health Wellness
Chiropractors are educated and trained to help patients with their overall health and, unfortunately for some women, that includes infertility. There are many reasons why a couple may be unable to conceive including stress, poor nervous system function, and poor nutrition. Anyone of those things can be addressed through a consultation with a chiropractor.
Through whole health wellness and care, a chiropractor helps women (and men!) become their healthiest selves. Healthier bodies are better able to accept and sustain a pregnancy, so even though chiropractic care may not be the first thing you think of when you are trying to conceive, it may be one of the most effective steps you can take to get started with a healthy pregnancy.
Chiropractors can reduce nerve interference and stress levels, educate you on healthy eating habits, and simple exercises that can support your health goals. Regular chiropractic adjustments can normalize your breathing, improve digestion, reduce blood pressure, and even realign the pelvis. Taken together, all of these positive effects may help couples become pregnant by reducing stress and strain on the reproductive organs.
And it’s not just women who can benefit! It takes two to tango, and in 30% of cases, infertility can be traced back to the man. Chiropractic care may be able to help with male infertility in many of the same ways it helps with female infertility – by restoring function and balance to the body and the reproductive organs, in particular.
