Abstract/Notes Objective: This case study describes the chiropractic care of a 23 year old woman with a history of infertility, amenorrhea, six year history of taking birth control pills, low back pain and progressively worsening numbness in both of her legs. This paper also reviews the literature of eleven other case studies involving females with histories of infertility who became pregnant once under chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 23 year old female presented for chiropractic care to improve her overall health, in the hope that she may ultimately be able to have a child. At the time of the physical exam there was a six week history of numbness and tingling in her left foot, and within a month the temporary bouts of numbness included both of her legs and feet. The patient was referred to a neurologist for consultation.

Intervention and Outcome: Examination protocols of Diversified Technique were utilized to detect and adjust vertebral subluxations for the first 2 ½ months of care and Toggle/Webster Technique protocols were used exclusively thereafter. Visits included thermography as an instrumentation procedure. The patient had her first natural menstrual cycle 3 ½ months into care and discovered she was pregnant 4 ½ months after initiation of chiropractic care. Ultrasound confirmed the pregnancy shortly after.

Conclusion: Marked resolution of the patient’s signs and symptoms was obtained concomitant with a reduction in subluxation findings at multiple levels. Further research is called for to evaluate the safety, cost, and effectiveness of chiropractic care in women’s health.
