Having difficulty conceiving?

Shockingly, Singapore’s national fertility rate dropped to a record low of 1.16 in recent times.  This fertility rate is well below the replacement rate of 2.1, and it means that two Singaporeans will become one in the next generation!

This is a concern for the Government and it reflects the changing society in which we live. More stress, different goals, changing lifestyles and worsening health are all to blame.

Thousands of Singaporeans would do anything to conceive right now, but it seems less and less are able.

If you decide that you are ready to start trying or you have already been working for a long time, then you should undoubtedly consider improving your odds of conception with a method that is totally natural, non-invasive, and often quick and inexpensive. Yes, a visit to the chiropractor may well help you conceive. Nearly all chiropractic offices will have stories of happy couples that are suddenly able to conceive after years of frustration.


The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research published a series of research papers showing that chiropractic had positive results treating infertility regardless of age, the number of years of infertility, whether or not there had been previous medical intervention or health history (including miscarriages, blocked fallopian tubes, amenorrhea, colitis, or trauma). These are impressive results indeed.

So How Does it Work?

Well, your spine is the central highway of your most essential nerves, conducting electrochemical energy around the body at lightning speeds. Just like any electrical appliance must be plugged in correctly to work correctly, your reproductive system will also not function as intended if the nerves conducting the life energy back and forth between the brain and your organs are not functioning or blocked in some way.

The main job of a talented, highly trained, chiropractor is to identify any pinched or stressed nerves and correct any spinal distortions (subluxations) that are causing them. Typically, in this modern world, these spinal distortions are caused by falls, illnesses, accidents, poor posture, or even stress.In Singapore, poor posture and stress will be by far the most important factors.

If there are subluxations (spinal distortions causing nerve interference) and they are corrected or reduced, then a woman’s menstrual cycle can strengthen, the delivery system for the egg through the fallopian tubes to the uterus can improve, and we have even seen cases of endometriosis beginning to reverse.

As a profession, we have so much empirical evidence of women visiting a chiropractor for any number of seemingly unrelated reasons only to find themselves pregnant. In our office, we have seen couples who have battled infertility for more than ten years and then suddenly became pregnant within a couple of months of care in our office. We know of other successes after only a couple of visits to the chiropractor.

Will It Work For Everyone?

Of course, this does not mean that all frustrated female patients will get pregnant after a visit to the chiropractor, only that it has worked for and continues to help many women worldwide. The nervous system controls the body and if the nerves don’t flow correctly, then dysfunction follows.

Chiropractic is indeed an option worth exploring either alone or in conjunction with other infertility treatment. There are no side effects other than improved function. Even if you are not trying to conceive, a visit to the chiropractor can produce substantial health benefits because the spinal nerves travel to all the organs of the body and these all need uninterrupted nerve supply. If you ARE TRYING TO CONCEIVE though, the benefits to fertility are just too compelling to ignore.

So if you are considering options or want to improve your odds then make an appointment with the chiropractor as part of your ‘conception plan’.
