Fertility Challenges and Chiropractic Care
Fertility problems have become an epidemic
Over the past five years in practice, I have noticed a dramatic increase in patients noting fertility challenges and IVF treatments. The Center For Disease Control (CDC) claims that in the United States about 10% of couples experience challenges with conceiving (CDC). Fertility challenges can be due to either the man or the woman. The cost of medical treatment for fertility challenges is astronomical and often very difficult both physically and emotionally on women. Often I see couples in my office that seek out chiropractic care because they heard that chiropractic care can increase the chance of conceiving. Over the years, we have had amazing success stories of women that were able to conceive naturally while under care in my office. Actually, there have been a few times when my wife has been introduced to someone new, who upon hearing the name Ofek has mentioned, “Oh, is your husband Dr. Ofek? He helped me get pregnant…” And, of course, I had some explaining to do! Chiropractic focuses on ensuring that the nervous system functions at its best, thereby increasing health potential in the body, as well as overall well being. While there are many variables and causes of fertility challenges, research shows chiropractic can increase the chances of conceiving (ICPA). Do you know someone struggling with fertility challenges? Please be sure to let them know there is hope with chiropractic care!
