Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic And Infertility | Research Indicates That Upper Neck Injury Can Be An Underlying Cause Of Infertility
Infertility troubles are on the rise, and most know a couple or two that are having difficulties conceiving children. There are multiple reasons couples have troubles conceiving. In this article, we will discuss a little-known procedure called Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care that has shown promise in helping couples realize their dream of having kids. Before our discussion, we would like to bring the scope of the problem to your attention. The national fertility association gives facts about infertility.
Fast Facts About Infertility
Infertility is a syndrome that causes abnormal functioning of the male or female reproductive system.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse (six months if the woman is over age 35) or the inability to carry a pregnancy to live birth.
- 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) has 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 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)
Natural Infertility Treatment | Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research
In September of 2016 Drs. John Hilpisch and Stenberg D.C.published a CASE SERIES which indicates that injury to the upper cervical spine may be one of the underlying causes of infertility. Two female patients, ages 28 and 37 entered into Dr. Hilpisch’s office with fertility problems. (1) After 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. Their histories both involved whiplash type injuries. Whiplash predisposes individuals to upper cervical subluxation(misalignment of c-1 atlas or c-2 axis) which can interfere with normal nervous system function.(2,3)
We know that Upper Cervical Subluxations can cause dysfunction throughout the body. Several theories exist as to how upper neck misalignments affect health.(2,3) It is possible that interference’s 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 natures 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.
