How Does Chiropractic Support Fertility?

If you are trying to get pregnant, you might not think that chiropractic can help you. Because isn't chiropractic just "cracking bones?" 

How could chiropractic care possibly help you get pregnant? 

Quite easily.  

In addition to pain relief, chiropractic care ensures that your nervous system functions optimally, mobilizes your joints, and ensures that your cerebrospinal fluid effectively lights up your spine. Regular chiropractic care also improves your breathing, circulation, and digestion. 

All of which can help boost your fertility.

Chiropractic Soothes Your Nervous System                                                            What does the nervous system have to do with infertility? Plenty. Chiropractic's primary purpose is to ensure your nervous system is flowing adequately. When your nervous system is at optimal functioning, the rest of your body can fall in alignment - no pun intended.

The nervous system sends impulses responsible for hormone secretion, regulating blood flow, and releasing eggs.  

Chiropractic care can help boost fertility because the nerves that run through the spine supply the female reproductive system. 

An imbalanced nervous system creates an imbalance in the endocrine system, leading to an imbalance of hormones and the reproductive system. If the nerve conduction is blocked or improperly functioning, it could result in a decreased blood flow, and hormonal imbalance that could lead to infertility.

While a blockage of nerve flow can create problems from anywhere in the spine, problems most commonly arise in the pelvis. 

Chiropractic Care Aligns Your Low Back and Pelvis                                              If your low back and pelvis are misaligned and twisted, you may experience stress on your reproductive organs. Correcting misalignments will help your body restore healthy coordination of these systems. When the lower back and pelvis are mobilized, the nerves and blood vessels can better supply the reproductive organs. . 

When your spine is moving properly, your cerebrospinal fluid is able to nourish your brain, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland. Your hypothalamus and pituitary gland are responsible for producing the hormones necessary to your reproductive function.

Chiropractic Care Reduces Stress                                                                                Regular chiropractic care can help to reduce stress. Not only does it impact your nervous system... If you are lucky enough to have a chiropractor who knows how to loosen your tight muscles, there is an opportunity for an even deeper level of relaxation.  

So why is reducing your stress so important for fertility? In addition to the fact that when you are calm, your body is more receptive to implantation... With carrying the pain and anxiety of going through your journey... the simple act of a gentle human touch can help soothe your frazzled emotions.
