Chances are high that you know a couple who are having trouble getting pregnant. There is even a higher chance that couples you know are having trouble conceiving and they are not telling you. Sadly, there is a social stigma associated with infertility. Many couples feel embarrassed about their situation.
Chances are if you are still reading this, the following statistics apply
- 7.4 million women, or 11.9% of women, have ever received any infertility services in their lifetime. (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC)
- 1 in 8 couples (or 12% of married women) have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC)
- Approximately one-third of infertility is attributed to the female partner, one-third attributed to the male partner and one-third is caused by a combination of problems in both partners or, is unexplained.
- A couple of ages 29-33 with a normal functioning reproductive system has only a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month (National Women’s Health Resource Center). After six months of trying, 60% of couples will conceive without medical assistance. (Infertility As A Covered Benefit, William M. Mercer, 1997)
Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research/ Natural Infertility ResolutionFemale Infertility and Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care: A Case Series- J. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research- September 15, 2016
In September of 2016, Dr. John Stenberg D.C. and, John Hilpisch D.C. published a CASE SERIES which made the connection that injury to the upper cervical spine may be one of the underlying causes of infertility. Two female patients, ages 28 and 37 entered our clinic with fertility problems. The first woman suffered from primary infertility and the other from secondary infertility (inability to conceive or have a full-term pregnancy after having children). (1) Their histories both involved whiplash-type injuries. Whiplash predisposes individuals to upper cervical subluxation (misalignment of a C-1 atlas or C-2 axis) which can interfere with normal nervous system function. (2.3) Following a course of Blair Upper Cervical Care, both women were able to conceive. Each had been unable to conceive and tried multiple medical procedures to enhance fertility.
We know that Upper Cervical (neck) misalignments can cause dysfunction throughout the body. Several theories exist as to how upper neck misalignments affect health.(2,3) It is possible that interference at the brain-stem level can cause hormone levels to become imbalanced and an overall decrease in health. The inability to have kids or miscarriage can be nature’s way of indicating there is not enough health in the body to bring a child to normal maturation. Once the upper neck misalignment is removed the body is able to function better. Health results from a normal brain-to-body function. While Blair Upper Cervical Care is NOT a cure-all. It has been highly successful in a plethora of chronic health conditions when all else has failed.
