There are two main theories on this topic. First theory is yes! still visit a Chiropractor because a patient can still be adjusted above and below the area where surgery has taken place. Depending on the extent off the surgery, this is the theory I practice. Example: A patients had decompression surgery in cervical region (neck), I still will adjust mid and lower back along with extremities. Patients see great spine maintenance results with this method.

Second thought, do not adjust any part of the back because it may cause undo stress on the joints around the surgical unit or the hardware. I personally do not buy into this theory because, the spine is dynamic. This means the spine is always moving.

However, I will caution you. Always make sure you go to a Chiropractor that has alot of experience dealing with patient's with back surgeries.

Spina bifida can cause neuromuscular problems, which may lead to weird body positions or movement that makes intercourse awkward, but that is not a true fertility problem. The inability to produce healthy living (viable) sperm is what is considered a type of fertility problem for males. If you think your partner is having fertility problems, you can first visit a urologist and then a fertility specialist. Just keep in mind, most males with spina bifida are fertile, conception issues probably are due to something else. In conclusion, having a healthy nervous system will allow the entire body, including the reproductive system the ability to function better. This reason alone is one of the greatest reasons to regularly visit the chiropractor.

However, make sure you take any medical information you have gathered during this time, so the doctor will have a full understanding of your initial problem. In addition, allow the Chiropractor the time to completely examine you. After, the initial work up, be sure to follow the Chiropractors plan of care. Compliance is a major part of getting back your health.
