Endometriosis is a condition which affects 1 in 10 women, but many have no idea. Put simply, during a menstrual cycle the lining which would usually stay inside the womb to prepare the uterus for a potential embryo, escapes into the body, creating scar tissue around organs and cause pain or inflammation. 

Megan Thompson from Harrogate told Stray FM her story about the long journey she took before finally being diagnosed with the condition. Being the manager of O'Connor Chiropractic , she was lucky to be regularly adjusted  by Dr Jason O'Connor, and he soon discovered a fracture in her back which had occurred during a dancing injury as a child. Affecting a range of nerves, life debilitating symptoms which Megan had experienced her whole life suddenly made sense - regular kidney infections and painful periods. It was suggested she was tested for endometriosis, and the tests came back positive after having suffered for seven years without knowing.

Megan is now regularly adjusted which has made massive improvements to her quality of life. You can hear Megan's story below, when Beth Parsons went to O'Connor Chiropractic to talk to her about her experience with chiropractic care and her diagnosis of endometriosis.

But it's not just  getting the diagnosis of conditions like endometriosis as early as possible that could affect fertility...

This is a testimonial from recent customer Catherine Bolton:

“Since I started seeing Jason I’ve had two beautiful babies 19 months apart, so I’ve had my hands full.
I honestly believe that it’s because of Jason I now have Thomas and Alice.

I originally went to see Jason because a friend highly recommended him, I was suffering with knee pain (I was a long distance runner at the time) so I went along after a lot of pressure from my friend who convinced me it was not my knee but my spine.

On my first visit, I had to fill in a load of health and life style questions, which I just assumed were a standard sort of questions most of which would be ignored. However, after doing my examinations, Jason was able to explain not only why I was suffering with my knees but also why I had been suffering with horrendous migraines since a very early age, and possibly why I had had two miscarriages. So instantly we began treatment and he told me and my husband to hold off with trying to conceive until he had chance to properly adjust me. I started seeing him twice a week and 8 weeks later we were pregnant with Thomas. I have also not had a single migraine since I started treatment with him and my knee pain has subsided. I’ve now been seeing Jason regularly for the last two years and he will always be in my life. Both my babies have adjustments with him now, and I can honestly say he has changed my life.”
