Chiropractic Care for Fertility

Fertility can be a challenge for many people. Luckily, you can do several things to improve your chances of conceiving. Chiropractic treatment is one of the best tools for improving fertility and creating the healthiest possible environment to grow a baby. 

If you are concerned about fertility, have been diagnosed with fertility issues, or just want to give yourself the best chances of a healthy pregnancy, a chiropractor can help. Here’s what you should know about chiropractic care for fertility. 

Struggling with Infertility

Fertility issues are one of the most devastating health challenges a person can face. It’s disappointing to learn that becoming pregnant might be difficult, but it can also cause relationship issues. 

Various issues might cause infertility, including:

  • Ovulation disorders, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hyperprolactinemia, and hypo- or hyperthyroidism
  • Uterine disorders, including polyps or fibroids
  • Cervical abnormalities
  • Fallopian tube blockage or damage
  • Endometriosis
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency (early menopause)
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Medical conditions that trigger menstruation problems, including celiac disease, diabetes, and some autoimmune disorders
  • Age

There are also things you can do to promote fertility. These lifestyle choices might not be enough for everyone, but you can control them to improve your overall health and fertility. For example:

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Maintain a normal sleeping routine, which includes sleeping at night
  • Prevent sexually transmitted infections
  • Minimize stress

The Relationship Between Fertility and the Nervous System

The health of your nervous system affects your fertility. This is because it controls the endocrine system and your reproductive organs. The nervous system triggers the secretion of the hormones that release both eggs and sperm. If either the man’s or the woman’s nervous system is malfunctioning, it can affect fertility.

How Chiropractic Care Positively Supports Fertility

There are several ways that chiropractic care can help you with fertility. Even those without diagnosed fertility issues might consider visiting a chiropractor if they want to conceive. And if you have a diagnosed issue, chiropractic treatment is a great way to improve your chances of having a baby.

What can a chiropractor do to support fertility?

Help You Balance Your Hormones

Chiropractic care is one of the most effective tools for balancing hormones for both men and women. Hormonal imbalance often plays a role in fertility. A chiropractic adjustment aligns the spine, which allows the nervous system to perform better. This ensures that the nervous system functions as it should and triggers the release of the hormones that control the reproductive organs. When your spine is misaligned, it can affect your body’s hormone production.

Additionally, chiropractors can use massage therapy to improve circulation throughout the body. This also plays a role in fertility. 

Prepare the Body for Pregnancy

The healthier your body is, the better your chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy. Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to regulate ovulation, increase blood flow to your reproductive organs, and create the right conditions to support a healthy pregnancy. It can even support healthy childbirth and make the birthing process easier on your body.

Identify the Cause of Fertility Issues

Understanding the cause of infertility is the first step in correcting the problem. Unfortunately, allopathic medicine might not be able to give you the answers you need. Chiropractic care is one of the most effective ways to determine the exact cause of infertility. This is true for both men and women.

Some of the most common causes of infertility are linked to vertebral subluxation. Chiropractors examine the spine and can help you determine the cause of fertility issues. Once identified, you’ll be better able to design a course of treatment to improve your chances of conceiving.


If you’re struggling with fertility, chiropractic care can help. In addition to identifying the cause of infertility, chiropractic adjustments and other infertility treatment can help you treat the problems and increase your odds of conception and healthy pregnancy.
