Infertility and The Chiropractic Approach

Infertility is a medical condition that affects approximately 10-15% of couples in the United States. It can be defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. There are many factors that contribute to infertility, including hormonal imbalances, environmental factors, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices. While there are many treatment options available for infertility, chiropractic care has emerged as a safe and effective alternative.


Chiropractic care is a holistic approach that focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system. The nervous system controls all of the body’s functions, including reproductive health. Any interference in the nervous system can lead to dysfunction in the reproductive system. Chiropractic care aims to remove this interference by restoring proper alignment and function to the spine.

Chiropractic Research

Studies have shown that chiropractic care can improve fertility in both men and women. In men, chiropractic adjustments have been shown to increase sperm count and motility. In women, chiropractic care can improve hormonal imbalances, regulate menstrual cycles, and reduce the symptoms of conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

One of the key benefits of chiropractic care for infertility is reducing stress. Stress has been shown to have a negative impact on fertility in both men and women. Chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce stress levels by restoring proper nerve function and improving blood flow.

Another benefit of chiropractic care for infertility is improving pelvic alignment. Proper pelvic alignment is essential for reproductive health, and misalignments can lead to fertility problems. Chiropractic adjustments can help to restore proper alignment and reduce inflammation in the pelvic region.

In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, many chiropractors offer other treatments that can improve fertility. These may include nutritional counseling, exercise programs, and massage therapy. By taking a holistic approach to fertility, chiropractors can address the root causes of infertility and help couples conceive naturally.

If you are struggling with infertility, it may be worth considering chiropractic care as an alternative or complementary treatment. Talk to your chiropractor about their experience with fertility and what treatments they offer. By taking a proactive approach to your fertility, you can increase your chances of conceiving and starting a family.
