Infertility refers to the problem of getting pregnant in a natural way. Infertility is common in our contemporary society and has various causes.
The treatment is highly individualized & patient-oriented: a clear explanation and informed consent always precede the osteopathic examination and treatment.
Through more than 20 years of study, research and experience, osteopath Colette Peeters has developed specific treatment schedules and approaches to address infertility.
Depending on the cause of the fertility problems, internal osteopathic techniques can be an added value in a spontaneous pregnancy wish, IUI insemination, IVF, ICSI.
Is there a functional problem that can be a cause for infertility? Is there scar tissue as a result of, for example, endometriosis, chlamydia, or post-operative complaints?
Consequences of pathology and scar tissue
- Mechanical pick-up mechanism between fallopian tube and ovary is disturbed
- Uterus is immobile and has less blood flow which can make implantation difficult
- Associated pain complaints: pelvic pains, abdominal pains, pain during intercourse, painful menses, painful ovulation, tailbone complaints, ...
- Suspicion of other causes: referral to specialized centers for further investigation, multidisciplinary collaboration.
Osteopathic treatments cannot solve primary hormonal disorders with manual techniques. The osteopath is a mechanic who detects and treats loss of movement in your small pelvis with the aim of promoting fertility. Movement is life!
Other related complaints such as pain during sex, abdominal pains, intestinal complaints, chronic pelvic pains, tailbone complaints, painful periods and ovulation are often part of a fertility problem. Colette Peeters is also available to consult on these issues.
Colette frequently attends surgery and IFV procedures in the context of infertility and fertility treatments with the aim of gaining more insight into this complex and innovative branch of osteopathy.
