Pregnancy and Chiropractic
The Webster Technique is a safe and effective technique used in pregnant populations. The Webster Technique is a specific analysis and adjustment aimed to reduce misalignments of the sacrum to allow for optimal baby positioning. The technique also provides optimal pelvic biomechanics for an easier, safer birth.
"Dr. Larry Webster, Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. In expectant mothers presenting breech, there has been a high reported success rate of the baby turning to the normal vertex position. This technique has been successfully used in women whose babies present transverse and posterior as well. It has also been successfully used with twins. Any position of the baby other than ROA may indicate the presence of sacral subluxation and therefore intrauterine constraint. At no time should this technique be interpreted as an obstetric, breech turning technique."

Chiropractic for Kids
Chiropractic care provides a solid foundation of wellness in children.

• Ear infections
• Colic and irritability
• Asthma and allergies
• Behavioral issues
• Digestive problems
• Bed-wetting and sleep issues
• Colds and general illness
