National Infertility Awareness Week & How Chiropractic Can Help with Infertility

National Infertility Awareness Week & How Chiropractic Can Help with InfertilityApril 22nd to 28th is National Infertility Awareness Week. The week was instituted by a group called Resolve. This group is part of the National Infertility Association and they strive to help those struggling with infertility by providing access to care, support, community, and education. As part of our contribution to National Infertility Awareness Week, we here at Vital Life Chiropractic want to share our knowledge about the experience some women have had overcoming infertility through chiropractic care.

Who Struggles with Infertility?

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just older women who struggle with infertility. Women and men of all ages can face infertility, which is simply the inability to get or stay pregnant. About 10% of women in the US between ages 15 and 44 face infertility, a diagnosis that is given only after one full calendar year of actively trying to conceive with no viable pregnancies resulting.

Men alone contribute to about one third of infertility issues, while women alone contribute to about one third, and the remaining one third of infertility cases can be attributed to both men and women with infertility.

What Are the Common Treatments for Infertility?

Most medications that are prescribed for infertility are designed to help women ovulate more regularly. These fertility treatments can often lead to increased likelihood of getting pregnant with multiples, such as twins or triplets. Being pregnant with multiples often leads to more complications during pregnancy, especially for those who previously faced infertility.

Other infertility treatments include intrauterine insemination, where a woman is injected with specially prepared sperm, and assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro, where a woman’s eggs are fertilized outside her body and then the embryos are placed back into her uterus. Unfortunately, these treatments are incredibly expensive and not […]

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful and miraculous thing, but it can also be a time of discomfort, restlessness, and even pain for some women. With as many changes as a woman’s body goes through during the course of a pregnancy, it’s no wonder that various aches and pains present themselves randomly and without warning. The most common reasons pregnant women look for Lithia Springs chiropractors is to reduce back pain that comes from carrying their child, though many find that it helps them in other ways as well.

What many people don’t know is that receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy offers women (and their babies!) a myriad of awesome benefits both short-term and long-term. If you are pregnant and want the healthiest pregnancy for yourself and your baby, give Dr. Ronnie a call at Vital Life Chiropractic in Lithia Springs, GA to schedule a consultation!

Common Pregnancy Complaints Alleviated with Chiropractic Care

Any pregnant woman could provide a lengthy list of various complaints at any given moment during her pregnancy. Nausea, back pain, heartburn, hip discomfort, restless legs, headaches, and more are commonly experienced during healthy pregnancies, but oftentimes, there isn’t much that can be done to immediately alleviate them. While some medications may help short-term, they don’t get rid of the root cause of the ailment and they come with their own risks and side effects. Since your Lithia Springs chiropractor, Dr. Ronnie, is all about true correction rather than temporary relief, he will adjust a pregnant woman with gentle adjustments that target spinal misalignments that are related to her pregnancy woes.

Chiropractic care at Vital Life Chiropractic can help lessen problems during the pregnancy and will set up both mom and baby for optimal health, both during the pregnancy and into the […]

Successful In Vitro Fertilization in a Poor Responder While Under Network Spinal Analysis Care: A Case Report Senzon SA, J Vertebral Subluxation Research September 14, 2003, pp 1-6.

This case report describes the successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) of a 34 year old female who had one previous aborted In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) attempt prior to Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) care that was attempted due to her partner’s azoospermia.

The patient had been treated medically Mircette (birth control pills), Lupron (a gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist), and Gonal-F (a recombinant FSH). The IVF was cancelled due to poor response. The patient commenced regular NSA care and her body chemistry responded positively so that the next IVF was successful and was followed by a successful pregnancy. The patient is still under NSA care, and is now in her second trimester with normal fetal heart sounds.

The resolution of chronic colitis with chiropractic care leading to increased fertility Blum, CR J Vertebral Subluxation Research August 31, 2003, p 1-5.

A 32-year-old female presented at my office for chiropractic care of her chronic colitis and did not disclose her condition of infertility during the course of care at this office. There appears to be some relationship between chiropractic care and relief of some visceral conditions relating to the colon and female reproductive organs. Chiropractic care including Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), chiropractic manipulative reflex technique (CMRT), and category one block placement and protocol were employed. The patient had her chronic condition of colitis relieved and relatively simultaneously became pregnant after giving up on allopathic fertility treatments that she had undergone for 7 years.
