The restoration of female fertility in response to chiropractic treatment. Proceedings Of The National Conference On Chiropractic And Pediatrics. 1994:55-64. McNabb B. Copies of the proceedings may be purchased through the ICA; call 1-800-423-4690. This is the case history of a 36-year-old woman who had been medically tested and examined for infertility for a year. No abnormalities were found in her or her husbandʼs reproductive system. When she finally sought chiropractic care she also had pelvic pain (often interfering with sleep) low neck and upper back pain, headache of two weeks duration and tinnitis of several yearʼs duration. Chiropractic care adjusted C1-2, T11- T12, and L-4-5. Care was three times a week for two weeks, twice a week for four weeks and once a week for 3 weeks. The pelvic, tinnitis lower neck and upper back pain were improved. Headaches became mild and rare. Patient became pregnant shortly thereafter and had an uncomplicated delivery. Below is the story of a California woman who was given a 5 percent chance of ever pregnant, even with in vitro procedures and who became pregnant after chiropractic adjustments to her lower spine released subluxations.

Inability to conceive. Two case histories from the files of Larry L. Webster, D.C. International Chiropractic Pediatric Association Newsletter. Nov. 1995. Female - Age 32 - Prior Care - Medical -fertility pills, shots - negative results. No menses for 12 years. After two months of chiropractic care, menses resumed. Patient complained of abdominal discomfort during cycle. It was my feeling that this would be natural occurrence following an absence of menses for 12 years. Her menses occurred on a regular cycle for four months when she conceived. She was referred back to her medical doctor for confirmation of pregnancy. Her doctor informed her it was impossible for her to be pregnant – after all, he had done everything medically possible “and besides, there were no nerves emitting from the spine to the reproductive organs.” A few months later she delivered a healthy seven 1/2-lb. son. The major area of the spine adjusted in this case was the lumbar region.

Female - Age 26 - Had been trying to get pregnant for past few years with negative results. She had taken the medical route with fertility pills, shots, etc. Had a severe scoliosis (Cobbʼs angle of 58°) and upon examination, I informed her that I felt we could not affect the Cobbʼs angle and that possibly the severity of the curve with the subluxations present could be the reason for the lack of her bodyʼs ability to conceive. At the end of six months, X-Rays revealed the Cobbʼs angle was reduced to 47°. Approximately one month later, she became pregnant and remained under care throughout the pregnancy and delivered a fine baby with no complications. The areas adjusted were sacrum, lumbar and cervical spine. No side posture moves were utilized in this case.
