Response to Gonstead Chiropractic Care in a 27 year old Athletic Female with a 5 year history of Infertility

Objective: This article describes the chiropractic care of a 27 year old athletic female with a 5 year history of infertility.

Clinical Features: Following a marathon, the subject experienced an unresolved injury and sought out chiropractic care. The initial chiropractic evaluation revealed a history of numerous alterations in physiological function, including low back pain, constipation, neck pain, headaches, loss of balance, tension, as well as 5 years of infertility which medical treatments had been unsuccessful for.


Conclusion: One month after the application of chiropractic care, marked reduction in dysautonomia and dysponesis is demonstrated, and while previously infertile for 5 years this woman conceived and sustained a successful pregnancy. Further research is suggested examining the application of chiropractic care and associated restoration of function, including reproductive function.
