Bet you didn’t know that physical therapy can help infertility.
A new study published in the Alternative Therapies Journal shows that using a special physical therapy technique is less expensive and not as invasive as traditional fertility treatment. 40 to 60 percent of the women in this study experienced success in getting pregnant.
Infertility can be devastating and it affects 11% of women in the US. Approximately 7.4 million women in the US spend tons of money on invasive fertility treatments per year.
This type of physical therapy treatment is different then when you go for regular orthopedic problems such as lower back pain and an ankle injury says the author of Baby Bod, Marianne Ryan PT. Manual physical therapy techniques, such as visceral mobilization, are used to help increase the mobility of the internal organs and abdominal wall. The theory is that if you can enhance movement restrictions, you can improve the overall function of the internal organs, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.
Women with endometriosis and PCOS are given new hope, 43% of the women with endometriosis and 53% of the women with PCOS were able to get pregnant after treatment.
The therapists at Marianne Ryan Physical Therapy are experts in manual therapy and have experience in treating women with infertility and other women’s health issues.

As a mother and a physical therapist with over 30 years experience in women's health, I developed a passion for helping moms improve their health, before, during, and after pregnancy. An easy to follow program can be found in my book, Baby Bod - Turn Flab to Fab in 12 Weeks Flat. It was developed to help pregnant women prepare for childbirth and for moms, even if it has been years since they became a mother, to recover from the lingering physical issues caused by pregnancy and childbirth.
