Fertility treatment in Virginia Beach

Does Chiropractic affect fertility?

This is a question I get asked several times a year, and of coarse the quick easy answer is yes! This being said I think these patients are really asking; How does chiropractic affect fertility? Is chiropractic treatment safe? How much is this treatment going to cost? Lets address these one at a time.

How does chiropractic affect fertility?

Per the Virginia Board of Medicine, “Practice of chiropractic means the adjustment of the twenty-four movable vertebrae of the spinal column, and assisting nature for the purpose of normalizing the transmission of nerve energy. It does not include the use of surgery, obstetrics, osteopathy, nor the administration of any drugs, medicines, serums or vaccines….”

The key statement here is “normalizing the transmission of nerve energy”. This nerve energy is what controls every activity of the body including making women fertile. The other major components include proper nutrition, stress reduction and healthy lifestyle habits (not smoking), all of which are taught by the chiropractor.

Keeping the spine in proper function, flowing with normal nerve transmissions, and counseling patients in nutrition, proper exercise and lifestyle changes make the chiropractor a great option for fertility issues.

Is chiropractic care a safe method to treat infertility issues in women?

Chiropractic care is a safe and noninvasive holistic approach to optimizing body function. This is done by enhancing the performance of the nervous system which is the master control system of the body.

There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care, before, during, or after pregnancy. All chiropractors are licensed to work with women who are pregnant. Fertility and wellness treatment of pregnant women is routine for most chiropractors. I have pursued additional training to become an expert in this area. I am a member in good standing of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Assoc.) as well as being proficient in the Webster Technique, which is designed to treat pregnant women.

Is Chiropractic care expensive?

Chiropractic care is a cost saving approach to maximizing proper health and well-being. IVF or “In vetro fertilization” can cost as much as $15,000 to $25,000 per attempt. If chiropractic care can help you avoid IVF or reduce the number of attempts the savings could be huge. The average cost of a cash chiropractic treatment is $50. Most major health insurance offer chiropractic benefits, which would reduce the out of pocket.

Its kind of an old joke in chiropractic when we talk about how many women we helped get pregnant over the years, however to these women it is often a miracle. Call New Life Chiropractic with your fertility and pregnancy concerns today! 757-222-0910
