How does Physical Therapy help with fertility you may be wondering?  

The answer is that not ALL physical therapy helps, however at Redefining Health we specialize in an area of therapy called visceral manipulation. It is within this practice that wonderful things happen for fertility. The ability of an organ to move is critical to the entire fertility process.

For a woman, the fallopian tubes must be able to stretch out over the ovary to receive the egg and with proper timing.

For men, there must be adequate circulation and mobility for healthy vibrant sperm. Visceral work can help with this.

How do I know if my organs are in need of mobilizing:

  • History of endometriosis (creates adhesions)
  • History of ANY abdominal or pelvic surgeries (creates adhesions)
  • Incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Cramps with menses  

Are there any benefits to visceral work if there are no adhesion issues?

  • Most certainly. Visceral work increases circulation bringing in a flood of?nutrients detoxes the organ and provides a rich, lush environment for your new life to thrive.

For more details, you can contact Redefining Health’s physical therapist at Portland, OR.
