Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2021 Mar;2021():24-28
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this case is to report on the positive health outcomes following chiropractic in a woman suffering from secondary amenorrhea and infertility. 

Clinical Features: A 29-year-old female presented for chiropractic care after receiving a medical diagnosis of secondary amenorrhea. She and her husband were trying unsuccessfully to conceive for several months. She sought care initially from her OB/GYN and utilized chiropractic as an alternative (drugless) means of changing her health status.  

Intervention and Outcomes: Radiographic analysis and Diversified technique were used to analyze and adjust the patient for the presence of vertebral subluxations. The patient was under chiropractic care for 14.5 weeks where she recorded 33 visits, leading to normal menstrual cycles and ultimately a successful conception.

Conclusions: This case report demonstrated the impact of the vertebral subluxation on the function of the female reproductive system. This case provided further insight into the positive effects of subluxation-based chiropractic care and shows the importance of further inquiry on the topic.
