Infertility is often related to pelvic fascial and visceral (organ) dysfunction resulting from surgical scars, infection, adherences or traumatic injury. Blocked fallopian tubes are an example of a pelvic visceral dysfunction that often results in infertility. Specialized treatment that includes techniques called visceral manipulations have been shown to be successful in increasing fertility particularly (but not only) as it relates to the tubes (Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, October 2012, ME Kemp).
