Treatment for Infertility

Chiropractic Plymouth MA Couple

Typically, chiropractic treatment in Plymouth is associated with the treatment of aches and pains in your body. However, chiropractic treatments cover a variety of conditions affecting the body, including infertility. In the past few years, some women suffering from infertility have taken a more holistic path in addressing their condition. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments can be expensive, invasive, and exhausting for women. Many couples undergoing IVF experience depression and stress due to the side effects of IVF, which include mood swings, headaches, bloating and abdominal pain. Rather than turning to IVF to treat their infertility, many women are turning to acupuncture and chiropractic treatments instead. How does chiropractic treatment address infertility?

The Aim of Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment seeks to manipulate the structure of the body by improving the its function, correct alignment issues, and helping to relieve pain. Alignment techniques help to realign the body in order to relieve any chronic tension and inflammation. By working with the body's nervous system, chiropractic care helps to improve the function of the body's reproductive system.

The Connection Between The Low Back And The Reproductive Organs

The nerves associated with the reproductive system are located in the low back. When the nerves in this region are misaligned (subluxated), the reproductive system may be affected. Subluxations can hinder the nerves going to the reproductive organs and can disrupt their delivery of hormones. As a result, subluxation contributes to hormone imbalance.

The nervous system helps to direct fertility health, conception, and childbirth. By transmitting impulses and sensations to every part of the body, the nervous system helps the muscles, the spinal cord and the organs to properly function. The American Pregnancy Association associates fertility issues with "improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress, and [bad] lifestyle habits." Because chiropractors specialize in nervous systems, they can help to clear your nervous system of unnecessary interference. Additionally, chiropractors provide assistance in improving your overall wellness so that you can adjust your lifestyle to benefit your body's reproductive process.

Is Chiropractic Care Expensive?

Chiropractic care for infertility can be much less expensive than IVF, which can cost between $10,000 and $20,000. By using chiropractic treatment to improve your reproductive system, you may not need IVF or you might dramatically reduce the number of IVF attempts, saving you money.

Lifestyle Choices

In addition to receiving chiropractic care, it's important to live as healthy of a lifestyle as possible when attempting to conceive. Eating a healthy diet and regularly exercising can greatly improve your overall health and reduce your stress levels. Additionally, make sure that you receive an adequate amount of sleep each night, which will improve your overall health as well as help to reduce stress levels. If you have high amounts of stress, perhaps you need to examine the areas in your life causing you stress. You might have to make changes such as switching jobs or eliminating toxic people from your life.
