Understanding the Connection Between Fertility and Women's Health

four women of all shapes and colors

Did you know that May is Women’s Health Month? At OWL Chiropractic, we're committed to your overall well-being, and that includes supporting women's health throughout every stage of life. For a woman, one of the easiest ways to gauge overall is to understand the connection between fertility and women's health. 


A fertile woman is a healthy woman, and vice versa. (Pre-menopausal, of course!) If a woman has issues with her menstrual cycle and/or has trouble getting pregnant, it could mean there is interference within her nervous system that is preventing optimal health and therefore the optimal environment for pregnancy to occur. The nervous system plays a vital role in regulating hormones, blood flow, and overall bodily function. In many cases, fertility issues are associated with improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress, poor lifestyle habits, or a combination of those.


At OWL Chiropractic we specialize in correcting subluxations, or misalignments in the spine, that disrupt nerve communication within the nervous system and therefore can lead to a wide variety of issues within the body. 


Hormonal Balance: Conditions that can result from imbalanced hormones include: irregular menstruation, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, acne, and thyroid diseases. Chiropractic adjustments improve nerve communication by removing interference in the nervous system. When the body and brain can communicate better, it makes sense that things like hormonal imbalances may also improve.

Pelvic Alignment: A misaligned pelvis could potentially put pressure on reproductive organs. At OWL Chiropractic we correct pelvic imbalances with a customized approach utilizing digital dynamic x-rays and infrared thermography, creating a more optimal environment for conception.

Stress Reduction: Stress can wreak havoc on your body, including impacting fertility. Regular chiropractic care can promote relaxation and improve your body's ability to manage stress, potentially creating a more favorable environment for conception. 


Overall Wellbeing: Regular chiropractic care can improve overall health and well-being. All of our Chiropractors at OWL are also educated in proper lifestyle habits, exercise, and nutrition that support not only a healthy (and fertile) body, but a healthy pregnancy as well!


While many studies support a potential link between Chiropractic improving fertility, it is important to note that there are many factors that can influence infertility, and we can’t guarantee to increase your fertility with Chiropractic. However, if you're looking for natural ways to support your reproductive health and overall well-being, OWL Chiropractic can help. Our experienced chiropractors will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that addresses your specific needs.


Side Note: Of course women are only half of the equation when trying to conceive! Make sure you tune back into our blog next month when we cover men’s health and talk about natural ways to boost testosterone, male infertility and chiropractic, men’s mental health, and more!
