Helping Fertility Struggles with Chiropractic Care
Fertility trends show a continual decline in fertility rates, and we’re told nothing can be done to change this. According to research from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, 49% of couples will require fertility assistance to become pregnant by 2050.
We see a different possibility. Where traditional fertility methods can get you pregnant, they may not be able to keep you pregnant, and where their goal is just pregnancy, we believe in better. At Innate Life Chiropractic, you’re not just a number. We partner with you and your significant other to create a custom preconception care plan that creates generational health benefits.
We know that the physiology and neurological state of the mother and father have an epigenetic impact on fertility and the life of the conceived child. Many fertility issues are due to an unbalanced system and interference in the nervous system.
Our chiropractic care goes back to the basics of fertility. A nervous system that is clear and connected creates a foundation for a healthy, fertile body. We work to optimize the function of both parents before conception. Dr. Nathan is experienced in helping couples navigate their fertility challenges and achieve their desired pregnancies.
Potential Causes for Fertility Struggles
Hormone release and regulation are coordinated and controlled by the nervous system’s ability to signal and sequence hormones. Stress on a woman’s nervous system can inhibit this coordination. When stressed, the body releases the hormone cortisol, which inhibits the release of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Often, anxiety, menstrual irregularities, cramping, stress, low energy, and tension in the neck and shoulders are directly related to this constant stress. Additionally, stress on a man’s nervous system will cause more cortisol to be released. This “fight or flight” state can negatively impact his fertility too.

Tonal Chiropractic Adjustments
Tonal chiropractic looks at the overall tone of your nervous system. This approach relieves abnormal tension on the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, making the body more adaptable and resilient. Dr. Nathan uses a combination of MLS, Network Spinal Analysis, Biogeometric Integration, and MC2 to help your nervous system shift from stress to healing.
Dr. Nathan will adjust the vertebrae in the affected area to increase your range of motion and take pressure off the spinal nerves. He will focus on the imbalanced zone(s) connected to your challenge and begin care from there. Common zones that will contribute to or cause fertility conditions are the glandular, nervous, and circulatory zones.
A well-adapted nervous system, which isn’t constantly in fight-or-flight mode, is essential for your baby’s conception to occur and sustain itself. Innate Life Chiropractic will help you address the underlying causes of your fertility struggles so that you can begin the first steps of your parenting journey.
