How Drug-Free Chiropractic Care Can Improve Your Sexual Health

You may not think of seeing your chiropractor when wondering how to improve your sex life, but the benefits of a good spinal

Better sex: It’s something most people pine after their entire lives. If you’ve been feeling the stress of a humdrum sex life or sexual dysfunction, have you considered that it’s actually a problem with your spine? 

Your body functions via an incredibly intricate system that can become dysfunctional when even the slightest thing veers. One common example: sexual health. At Integrated Body and Medicine, our chiropractors know that proper chiropractic care can improve sexual health. Here’s how.  

How can chiropractic care improve my sex life? 

Overall health and sexual health are closely related, although this relationship is often overlooked. Chiropractic care can improve your sexual health and sex life through two main mechanisms by: 

Let’s look at both in more detail. 

Relieving pain

Sometimes the reason for poor sexual health is as simple as the fact that you’re in pain. If your back, neck, or another body part chronically aches and bothers you, you might just not feel the desire to have intercourse, plain and simple. 

Chiropractic adjustments are proven to relieve pain, particularly in the major joints, including your:

Chiropractic care can also help manage or eliminate headaches, which are a common cause for avoiding sex. So if you’ve been feeling lackluster about your sex life due to chronic pain, invest in a chiropractic care plan to help you get excited again. Chiropractic care may also improve your range of motion by loosening up joints, so you and your sweetheart can get more experimental in bed. 

Correcting a physiological problem

Your nervous system controls every function in your body. When your vertebrae slip out of position (known as a subluxation), the nerves traveling up and down your spine can become suppressed or blocked, which comprises your body’s ability to do what it’s meant to do, including sex. 

Eliminating subluxations in the lumbar (lower back) region can improve nerve communication between your reproductive organs and your brain, making the whole intercourse thing a lot easier. Correcting subluxations may also improve blood flow to your sexual organs and result in more pleasure. 

Additionally, subluxations in the cervical (upper spine and neck) area can negatively impact your body’s ability to distribute critical sex hormones throughout your body. When sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone are out of balance, you may experience a low libido. Getting an adjustment can restore the natural flow of hormones.
