Treatment of functional sterility

This method is the most physiological treatment for infertile women. It is based on a combination of exercises, which increase the possibilities of natural conception. It affects the neuromuscular apparatus of the pelvic floor through the autonomic nervous system, the female genital organs and it improves their blood supply. It further improves the quality of muscle and connective tissue.

Infertility of men and women is a new phenomenon,and it is becoming increasingly necessary to examine it. Infertility of society that is capable of reproduction is in many cases caused genetically, but what is surprising in increasing number of cases it is caused by time and environment in which we live, poor diet and the overall lifestyle of the population suffering from lack of physical activity. Technologies begin to prevail; we carry out our work in sitting positions; the demand for time increases; the percentage of population living under pressure and stress thus also increases. The loss of exercise and sedentary lifestyle leads to obesity and diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, some cancers and cardiovascular disease, spondylous disease, spondylous algic syndromes, functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system, under which there is muscle imbalance, spasms, functional articular blockades and overload of postural muscles. These diseases are often related to the problem, which we call functional sterility. 

The problem of infertility is increasingly getting into the consciousness not only of the general public (more and more couples have a real problem to get pregnant), but it has also been noticed by the scientific community who feels the need to deal with it. Also the number of scientific papers dealing with this issue increases. 

Treatment of functional sterility according to Ľ. Mojžišová is the most physiological treatment for infertile women, based on reflex impact on nerve-muscle apparatus of the pelvic floor. The medical device shows the effect on lumbar spine, sacrum, coccyx, pelvis and muscles, and their relative positions. In this way it is then possible to affect the female sex organs by means of the autonomic nervous system, either by improving blood supply, or increasing the quality of muscular and connective tissues (Hnízdil, 1996).

Exercises result in a reflex impact on the tone of smooth muscles and also improved blood circulation in the pelvis resulting in improved function and reduction of gynecological problems (Kolář, 2009).

Mobilization techniques form a part of the method by Mojžišová.

The exercises are aimed at strengthening the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, which ensure the correct position of the pelvis together with the pelvic floor muscles. Strengthening is post-isometric and it is facilitated by breathing. Emphasis is also put on relaxing part of each of the exercises, because the pelvic floor release is the aim and purpose of the exercise. Other exercises have mobilizing and stretching effects according to the location of their effect (Hnízdil, 1996).


  • pelvic malalignment
  • bad posture
  • muscle imbalance of the axis system
  • scoliotic position of the spine, hyperlordosis
  • rotation of the lumbar spine
  • functional blockade of the sacro-iliac articulation
  • relative shortening of one lower limb
  • back and head pain (migraine)
  • painful intercourse
  • painful menstruation and its absence
  • congested pelvic floor muscles
  • frequent spasms in the pelvic floorbmuscles and the concomitant gynecological problems
  • irregular menstrual cycle
  • reporting anovulatory curve when measuring basal temperature
  • inability to become pregnant or maintain pregnancy


  • release of functional joint blockades
  • release of congested and shortened muscles of the back, pelvic floor
  • release of the lumbar spine
  • isometric strengthening of weak muscles of the axis system
  • adjustment of movement patterns (walking, sitting, standing, etc.)
  • adjustment of posture while standing, position of shoulders, pelvis
  • reduction or disappearance of painful conditions
  • menstrual cycle adjustment
