Pregnancy is one of the most amazing experiences that a woman can go through. It can also be an extremely stressful time for many women, especially regarding their health and wellness. With ligament laxity happening from the increase in relaxing, women's bodies are more susceptible to becoming subluxated and out of alignment. We are Webster technique certified through ICPA, and can help alleviate your round ligament discomfort, psoas discomfort, and keep your pelvis balanced during pregnancy. We have a table with a break away thoracic piece to keep you comfortable with your growing belly.

We want to help and empower new moms to be able to function at their highest level during this beautiful time in their lives. Chiropractic care during and after pregnancy is extremely beneficial for the pelvic floor and the new positions the body has to endure. As soon as the baby enters the earth, they can be adjusted! The first trauma they experience is child birth-so making sure their nervous system is firing at 100% is our number one priority! We have background in pelvic floor work completing a certification with the ICPA to help postpartum women recovery and get back to doing the things they love as well as pediatric certifications through the ICPA as well.

The birthing process is the first time your baby experiences pressures and forces being exerted
onto them. A recent study by Viola Frymann demonstrated that “90% of newborns suffered the
effects of birth trauma.” Even the most natural births can result in trauma that goes undetected. “65% of neurological development occurs within the child’s first year” so it is important to ensure that your baby has every opportunity to maximize their neurological
function.
We recommend all infants being checked after birth, but if you notice these 3 indicators bring
your child in for a pediatric adjustment.
1. Their head tilts to one side or they favor one side more than the other.
2. They have difficulty settling down or sleeping soundly.
3. Their body feels tense.

There is a one-time fee of $50 for all pediatric patients. We go over birthing and medical history, orthopedic exams, test reflexes, perform cranial sacral work and body work. If it is an older child we can take them through an injury prevention screening as well. We do adjust the same day and that is $10 for children under 12 years old and $30 for 13-18 year olds!
No, for infants we work on helping the baby relax and release body tensions. The adjustment is using our index fingers and applying the amount of pressure you use to check the ripeness of a tomato. It is very gentle.
We adjust infants right after they are born to toddlers, active children to adolescence! We adapt the chiropractic technique as they grow older.
