Infertility is a very emotional subject for many couples. However, infertility and sterility are not synonymous. At Lonstein Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Dr. Lonstein treats the issue with the sensitivity and compassion it deserves. Through the use of acupuncture and in some cases chiropractic, Dr. Lonstein has helped many couples improve their odds of having the baby they want so badly.
In a landmark study published in the medical journal Fertility and Sterility it was found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other reproductive techniques. Chiropractic and massage can also help with infertility. Occasionally, the problem can be something as simple as a misalignment in the pelvic region. When corrected, the blood flows more freely helping to make it easier to become pregnant. Massage can help in a number of ways. Most people who try for a number of years to become pregnant have a great deal of stress and massage definitely helps to ease stress. The relaxation of massage isn’t the only way it helps though. Massage therapy improves blood flow to the ovaries and helps break up tissue and blockages that are the three most common reasons why women have difficulty becoming pregnant.
Acupuncture has been used to treat infertility in China for more than 2,000 years.
