Linking Spine Health to Sexual Intimacy Issues: How Chiropractic Could Help
Problems in the bedroom aren’t something most people like to talk about, even to a medical professional. The hope is that whatever isn’t clicking will pass and soon, you’ll be able to forget your sexual setbacks as a bad memory. If the problem is being caused by nerve dysfunction as the result of a spinal misalignment, however, waiting for things to get better on their own isn’t an option.
If your lack of a sex drive or lethargy in the bedroom are accompanied by low back or leg pain, it’s worth mustering up the courage to speak to a medical professional. A visit to Ideal Spine Health Center in Boise, ID for a comprehensive consultation and Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) adjustment may help you get life in the bedroom back on track.
Nerve impedance and restricted blood flow
Misalignments in the lower (lumbar) spine are catalysts for sex organ dysfunction for two reasons. First, they block nerve signals from the brain. Second, they restrict vital blood flow. Both of these are essential when it comes to sexual activity and when one or both are negatively impacted, problems abound.
Subluxations in L3 and L4 tend to create the most trouble for men and women alike. Nerves routed through L3 relate to sex organs directly. Nerve signal interference here often means impotency for men, gland dysfunction for women, and lethargy for both. Problems with L4 deal with the prostate and low back, creating unique issues for men that result in impotency and lack of sexual appetite in women.
Blocked nerves in general also prohibit stimulation, lessening the sensitivity of erogenous zones and complicating signals of attraction and lust from the brain.
In addition to pinched, pained, or impeded nerves in the lumbar spine, general kyphosis can also create blood flow problems. Lack of blood flow contributes to impotency in men and can even go so far as to create extremely painful and irregular menstruation in women. Until proper spine curvature is restored, problems will likely persist.
Bringing back the romance
In assessing the degree of subluxation, kyphosis, or translation for lumbar vertebrae, chiropractors are able to examine areas of nerve impedance. A tailored CBP treatment plan can map the realignment of these displaced vertebrae over time. The result is nerve pathways and blood supplies that are restored. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it’s a more effective approach than waiting out a problem or masking it with stimulants.
Sexual dysfunction caused by spinal subluxation often goes unchecked. As mentioned, people often avoid the problem for as long as possible. Frequently, it comes with other issues as well, including weight gain and lethargy. A chiropractor will work to help patients achieve total body wellness, which includes addressing these peripheral issues as well. Diet, exercise, and conditioning can go a long way towards strengthening the body to prevent future subluxations, as well as restoring confidence to a long-sufferer of intimacy issues.
