In this case, a 28-year-old woman went to the Chiropractor seeking improvement in her overall health, and to increase her chances of becoming pregnant. When she first came to the Chiropractor, the woman had a history of infertility for two years, and was suffering from lower back pain for the previous 3 months. Her history also included ovarian cancer nine years earlier requiring surgical removal of one ovary, leaving the other with only three-quarters function. Patient had also undergone standard medical treatment for infertility without any success.
After an examination and x-rays, it was determined that the woman had multiple areas of vertebral dysfunction, more commonly known as subluxations. To correct what the authors called vertebral imbalances, a series of spinal adjustments were initiated. The results of the case study reported that after 14 Chiropractic sessions, the woman had announced that she was pregnant! She subsequently carried a healthy baby to full term and had a normal delivery.
In the discussion, the authors noted that infertility is becoming a growing issue in the United States. They also note that many couples are turning to non-medical forms of care due to the expense and unreliability of medical care. To offer an explanation of how Chiropractic can help in cases of infertility, the authors stated, “Chiropractic care can improve the autonomic nervous system function of the body including the reproductive organs by reducing subluxations.”
DR. GONZALEZ COMMENTS: Thanks to Dr. Romano for sharing this article from The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health.
As amazing and unbelievable as this story may seem it is true. During my studies at Parker College of Chiropractic one of my fellow classmates, Gary, told us the story of him and his wife. She could not get pregnant and after having tried unsuccessfuly using in vitro and other forms of fertility treatments. They went back to their family doctor who suggested Gary take his wife to see one more doctor as a last resort. When Gary asked him what type of doctor this was he was told, “he’s a Chiropractor.” Gary said, “my wife has no back problems” at which point their family doctor asked him, “Gary, do you trust me?” Gary replied, ”yes of course.” Their family doctor ”then take your wife to the Chiropractor.”
Gary did as he was told and much to their surprise this Doctor found a problem in his wife’s spine, corrected it and after a couple of months they reported that she was pregnant! They had three healthy children and Gary and his wife sold their cattle ranch in Montana so they could move to Dallas, TX so Gary could study to become a doctor of Chiropractic!
Many people do not realize that the spine, spinal cord and all the nerves control ALL THE ORGANS OF THE BODY. If you read Miguels story in my TESTIMONIALS you will read how Chiropractic cured Miguel from ten years of kidney problems. People should ALWAYS have their spines checked first to see if there is a problem there first even if there is no pain.
