Objective:   This article describes the chiropractic care of a 27 year old athletic female with a 5 year history of infertility.

Clinical Features:   Following a marathon, the subject experienced an unresolved injury and sought out chiropractic care. The initial chiropractic evaluation revealed a history of numerous alterations in physiological function, including low back pain, constipation, neck pain, headaches, loss of balance, tension, as well as 5 years of infertility which medical treatments had been unsuccessful for.

Chiropractic Care and Outcome:   Evidence of vertebral subluxation, including dysautonomia and dysponesis, were detected at multiple levels, and chiropractic care was applied using the Gonstead System. The details of 1 month of care are described.

Conclusion:   One month after the application of chiropractic care, marked reduction in dysautonomia and dysponesis is demonstrated, and while previously infertile for 5 years this woman conceived and sustained a successful pregnancy. Further research is suggested examining the application of chiropractic care and associated restoration of function, including reproductive function.

Key words:   Chiropractic, Vertebral Subluxation, Infertility, Gonstead, Athletic Female
