Over the many years of my practice
of chiropractic both here in The Bahamas and in Canada the story has
been similar among many of my female patients. “Doctor Blower,
my husband and I have been trying to conceive and cannot. Is there
anything you can do as a chiropractor to help us?”
Often chiropractic spinal manipulation
can help the processes of conception. Many women in my practice
were able to go on and successfully conceive after just a few months
of chiropractic care.
Our spine is a “pipeline”
and a “lifeline” connecting the brains to every tissue cell of the
It seems that reducing stress
upon our bodily systems through spinal and joint manipulation allows
the “drawn up tight” tissues like those of the hollow organs to
By restoring a normal balance
in our nerve supplies we help the female patient’s blood flow intra-abdominally
along with ensuring a more proper cyclical cellular buildup and sloughing
off of the uterine walls. And normal nerve balance from the spine,
pelvis and brainstem may improve the diameter of the fallopian tubes
which carry the mature egg to the uterus.
Within female patients with
difficulty conceiving there is often a nerve root lesion existing as
subluxation (spinal misalignment) at the level of the upper lumbar spine.
That area is just below the ribs at the lower mid back and reflects
an area prone to injury through twisting of the upper body. It
may be an area influenced structurally by a fall or sudden torque of
the body and this may have happened years and years before presentation.
All of those years and years subluxation may be there and we don’t
feel it, it is the “silent killer.”
Whenever we have a subluxation
we get altered functions in our body. Depending on the place of
misalignment in the spine or at the place on the “pipeline” the
subluxation will change and weaken specific tissues usually fed and
nurtured by their before altered nerve supply.
Add to this alteration of normal
nerve balance at the local spinal level further compromise of the autonomic
nerves with additional and very commonly encountered subluxations at
the level of the pelvis and upper neck.
The results of subluxations
are a push-me-pull-you staccato nerve dance confusing the healthy steady
ongoing tissue functions of the organs nerves and muscles.
Altering the circadian clock
of our body through subluxations may alter the cyclical hormonal and
organ rhythm. The nervous systems are responsible for our health
but can only meet that ability when they are un-phased, uninhibited.
Subluxations pose resistance
on our nerve phase or timing. Chiropractic removal of subluxations
helps restore health to their supplied tissues. Adjustments take
our body from being “offline” and puts it squarely back onto the
grid. Over time bodies may reverse and recover from damage.
It is safe to attend a chiropractor
right through pregnancy to termination. Then especially be helped
by the chiropractor in returning the spine and pelvis back into their
correct positions and form right after birth.
Most lower back pain that accompanies
pregnancy and often later while breastfeeding, can be easily and safely reduced with proper chiropractic
Chiropractors are trained to
be safe with spinal manipulations upon pregnant women as well as children.
