Menstruation Pain and Sterility

“Menstruation pain with otherwise normal gynecological findings especially when localized in the low back, is usually of vertebrogenic origin and often the first clinical manifestation of disturbance in the lumbosacral region.   Over 75% of women had excellent response to manipulation, labour pains can be a similar pointer. Female sterility of cryptogenic origin (i.e. with negative organic findings) may be attributable to pelvic dysfunction in particular of the coccyx, and adequate treatment (by manipulation) gives favourable results.”
