Does the Wurn Technique Increase Your Odds of Pregnancy?

With infertility on the rise, many couples are turning to alternative therapies such as massage, acupuncture, yoga and acupressure to give them the extra boost while trying to get pregnant. 

I just ran across a study from the Medscape General Medicine Journal that looked at using something called the Wurn Technique with women who were currently undergoing IVF, and the results were definitely significant.

The doctors/researchers followed a group of women who had struggled with infertility for five or more years and were opting to use IVF to start a family.  At the end of the process, over 65% of the women who used the Wurn Technique therapy became pregnant.  This is exciting news because the normal success rates for IVF on its own are 25-40%.

So what is the Wurn Technique?

The Wurn Technique is a type of physical therapy that some reproductive experts believe increase fertility.  It is a combination of massage and physical therapy that focuses on reducing inflammation and increasing the blood flow in the abdomen and pelvic area.

Believe it or not, doctors began using this type of therapy to help with musculoskeletal and post surgical pain.  The results are not completely surprising though.  There are other doctors around the world who are recommending similar therapies to their patients because they have found that the condition of the lower back muscles play a large part in reproductive health.

For example, another study was done in the Czech Republic by Dr. Mojzisova, involving healthy but infertile women ages 22-30.  The women used a home exercise program in addition to soft tissue, osseous mobilization and post-isometric relaxation techniques as part of their TTC plan.  According to her study results in the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine, 34% of the women using this therapy became pregnant, as compared with the 8% who didn't.

I am definitely one who believes in a whole body approach for women who are struggling with infertility.  There seems to be a natural pairing of Eastern and Western medicine when it comes to putting together a solid and successful TTC plan.

 Has anyone used the Wurn Technique?  Did it work for you?

They consider a successful procedure anyone who gets pregnant within two years, even if the person gets in-vitro after the clear passage.

I just want to add that this treatment is five thousand dollars for one week. Also, they consider a successful procedure anyone who gets pregnant within two years, even if the person gets in-vitro after the clear passage. Stay away. Find a Barral Visceral trained PT who will do it with your insurance.
