Infertility is a challenge of the reproductive system that impairs one of the body’s most basic functions; conception. Infertility impacts about 6.1 million couples in the United States. If you haven’t struggled with it yourself, chances are, you know someone who has.
Causes Of Infertility
The cause can be both male and female related. In males, the most common cause is a low sperm count. The most common female factor is an ovulation disorder. Traditional treatment can be expensive, ineffective and risky. Drugs, surgeries and in vitro fertilization are commonly recommended.
The anxiety, depression and frustration of the potential parents can be crippling; each month leading to great disappointment and heartbreak. Now, there is surprising hope to offer couples struggling to start a family.
Infertility And Chiropractic Care
A May, 2003 study, published in the Journal of Vertebral Research, demonstrated a strong link in the resolution of infertility with the initiation of chiropractic care. The study involved 15 females suffering from infertility. Four of the women were already seeking traditional infertility treatment when they started chiropractic care. The study indicated that 100% of the women suffering from infertility had evidence of nerve interference caused by subluxations. The focus on their care was the correction of subluxations. With the correction of subluxations through chiropractic care, all of the women in the study were able to conceive!
Chiropractic To Treat Subluxation
Chiropractic is not a treatment for infertility but intended for correction of subluxation. Subluxations may interfere with the nerves that are associated with the reproductive system. Once again, chiropractic becomes a simple, cost effective solution to the restoration of health!
