Abstract/Notes

Objective:  To describe the results of subluxation-based chiropractic care of a female struggling to conceive, and to provide a current review of the literature on infertility and chiropractic.
 
Clinical Features: A 29-year-old female schoolteacher with an 8-year history of infertility presented to a chiropractic clinic for care.  She revealed during the history that her menstrual cycle typically lasted 40-60 days, on average.
 
Interventions and Outcomes: Vertebral subluxation was found at S4 sacral segment, and specific, high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts were delivered according to Gonstead protocol.  After 4 weeks of care, she reported being pregnant.
 
Conclusion:  Chiropractic adjustments, resulting in the reduction of vertebral subluxation, appeared to be beneficial for a woman previously deemed infertile.  Research on chiropractic and infertility is limited, and the chiropractic profession is implored to conduct more research in this area.
