Stress and Fertility: A Chiropractor’s Perspective

Stress is one of the main causes of infertility

If, after a medical examination, you have been told that there is no discernable cause for your infertility, it is worth examining your lifestyle for signs of too much stress. Often, infertility is caused by hormonal imbalance and stress is a signal contributor to this occurence; under stress, the hypothalamus releases cortisol, the pituitary gland releases higher levels of prolactin, and adrenaline is released in higher quantities. For women, adrenaline signals to the body that she is not ready for conception; this is a defense mechanism in which her body actually tries to prevent the process of conception. 


Focusing on reducing the effect of stress on infertility with the help of chiropractic in Hackensack

It works like this: psychological stress contributes to muscle tension; chronically tight muscles then pull the spine out of alignment, causing nerve impingement and pain which causes pain and more stress. At our office in Hackensack, we focus on undoing these physiological effects of stress- winding back the layers of muscle tension, maintaining proper alignment of the spine and regulation of the nervous system. Once pain is receding out of the picture, we can focus on identifying elements in your life that are contributing to chronically high levels of stress.
