Chiropractic Care and Fertility?

I can only hope this will be my “cure” too. I have done so much research on Infertility that sometimes I have too much information about it all. I stumbled upon some internet discussions/articles regarding chiropractic care and conception… never really gave it much thought. Then I stumbled upon BonnieT’s Blog (I love reading it, BTW) and found a post she had that struck me….

I hope you don’t mind, Bonnie but I am copying your post here because I found it inspiring…. I can delete if you object. Yesterday was my first appointment EVER with a chiroprator….. so I will keep you all posted.

mama’s day
This weekend sounds like a good time to tell this story. To this day it still amazes me.

We’d been married for 7 years already. Moved all over the country, had our ups and downs like everyone else. Deep down I always thought the root of our ‘problems’ was the fact that we couldn’t get pregnant. Not that we thought that a baby would ‘fix’ everything, but a son or daughter would ‘complete’ us in a way that we would finally feel like a family and not just ‘us’. We both felt that we were put here to be parents, and the fact that it wasn’t happening was wearing on us.

Not just that, EVERYONE around us was getting pregnant. It came to a point where I didn’t want to answer the phone because I KNEW it was one of our dear friends telling us they were expecting. It’s a terrible thing to think, because they’re your friends. But it gets really, really TOUGH hearing it over and over when you’re TRYING over and over…

I guess we got to a point where we put it out of our mind. We’d never said the words, but I think we both decided that maybe it wasn’t meant to be. We’d been told different things by doctors, but never seeked any infertility treatment or anything like that. I think we were both scared to hear the words from them, you know? Anyway, we moved again, got busy and I started a new job. Now, I know new jobs aren’t that exciting to talk about, but I mention this one because I believe it was the turning point. I truly do.

I went to work for a Wellness Centre. Chiropractors, massage, physio…stuff like that. I was thier administrator which meant HELLO! Free treatments!! That was even better than the measly salary, trust me. I started getting regular chiropractic treatment, originally for my asthma (which helped a TON, by the way) but then I would get adjustments at least twice a week.

Within 2 months after starting there, I thought to myself “hmmm, I’m late”. I’ve been late before…a million times. So, for fun (and because deep down I’m a sucker for punishment) I went and bought a PG test. Took it and 2 lines showed up. I remember thinking “there, see, 2 lines, I’m just late” and I was seconds from tossing it in the garbage. Then I thought “wait a second….TWO lines” I had never seen TWO lines before. We didn’t believe it. We were so disbelieving that I hopped in my car and went and got another test.

2 lines again. Called the doctor. The nurse (a buddy of mine) told me to come over and they’d do THEIR test. So I did. She dips into it and says “well, there’s only 1 line Bonny”. Surprisingly, I wasn’t upset. I kind of just shrugged, stood up, gathered my things and she then said “hang on…a second line has come up!” LOL Right there I thought “hell, this baby is going to be a procrastinator just like I am!”…

So there you have it. For weeks we couldn’t believe it. Everyone around us was SO happy. Everyone kept asking me if I was doing anything different and ll I could think of was the chiro treatments. The treatments align the nerves in the spine properly so that your body can operate to its full potential, and cure itself properly, and move properly. With conception, everything has to be JUST right.

There is no medical evidence that chiropractic can act as a fertility treatment, but all I know is that before I was getting treated, it was just the two of us. Now she is and our hearts seem full.

I’m sold.

ARe you kidding?!? I am so happy that you looked into it!

How did it go. Fill us in!

I’m not kidding. Nope. At this point will try anything! I had the inital consultation and x rays and on Monday June 6, I go back and have my treatments and talk treatments or whatever the heck happens at the second appointment. I have never done this before and I must admit I am a bit scared to get “cracked”. Does it hurt? *sigh* It can’t be that bad.

LOL! Well, the “crack” that you’ll hear isn’t even a crack. The sound that you hear is gas being released in as the spine is re-alligned. No joke!

And doesn’t hurt. If you’ve never been, you may be a little stiff afterwards…nothing that a little ice can’t fix. I will let you know though, I have a phobia about my neck, no I have always just stuck to my back for treatments….but to each their own 🙂

I’m telling you, you’ll feel like a million bucks. My daughter has also been going since she was 6 days old….

So WHEN you’re in THAT situation, we’ll discuss chiro benefits for babies 🙂 😉
