Osteopathic treatment can provide a solution when fertility problems have a mechanical origin and medical exams fail to reveal any organic explanation and/or cause.
How I can help you?
If infertility does not have a medical cause, the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner uses manual techniques to test and improve the mobility of the uterus, ovary and Fallopian tubes. You can’t imagine the multitude of ligaments between the pelvic organ and the pelvic bones.
Your Osteopathic Practitioner releases ligament tension in order to improve organ mobility. The goal of this treatment is to “create” an enabling environment favourable to implantation. The Osteopathic Practitioner will also ensure the good mobility of the pelvic and vertebral joints. In fact, there is a close anatomical link between the reproductive organ and the spine and pelvis.
As you will have understood, the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner identifies a mobility restriction in the gynecological area and the pelvic joints. However, tensions in the neck and skull or shoulder tensions can also have repercussions on the gynecologic area therefore the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner has a holistic approach. For example, tension on the skull could have perturbed the functioning of a gland located at the base of the brain called the hypophysis. This gland is directly involved in the procreation by its role in hormonal secretion. In this case, the Osteopathic manual Practitioner focuses his treatment on the skull (cranial manipulation) to improve the functioning of the hypophysis.
How quickly will you see results?
Procreation is a complex and multifactorial phenomenon. The treatment for infertility can be short or can take several months. In any case, the Osteopathic manual Practitioner is essential to adjust the body’s physiology by restoring balance.
Osteopathy and IVF
The Osteopathic manual Practitioner’s work is fully compatible with In Vitro Fertilization, unless medically indicated. Osteopathy treatment brings an additional help to women involved in medically assisted procreation, because it prepares the woman’s body to receive a fertilized egg in optimal conditions.
