Chiropractic care during pregnancy aids in the optimal physiological function of both mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. Dr. Alex is trained in a specific chiropractic analysis called the Webster Technique. This technique aims to reduce interference within the mother’s nervous system by bringing balance to the mother’s pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments. With a nervous system free of interference, the mother’s body can best prepare for an easier pregnancy and birth process.
Regular chiropractic care throughout pregnancy has been shown to control symptoms of nausea, provide optimal space for fetal positioning, reduce the time of labor and delivery, and reduce pelvic and back pain. Regular chiropractic care throughout pregnancy and the post-partum period can help relieve common complaints and also allow the body to function optimally for a more enjoyable experience for both mom and baby.

We believe a well-adjusted spine and optimally functioning nervous system is the key to healthy growth and development. The birth process can be both physically and mentally traumatic for both mother and baby. There is an increased amount of abnormal stress and tension placed on the newborn’s spine, musculature, and nerves from the twisting and pulling during delivery. Often, this process can result in increased stress on the baby’s nervous system.
Pediatric chiropractic adjustments have demonstrated positive effects in children experiencing the following: difficulty breast feeding and latching, colic, reflux, chronic ear infections, allergies, asthma, ADD, chronic bed wetting, digestive issues, constipation, difficulty sleeping, and overall fussiness. Pediatric care is very safe and gentle. We often describe the pressure of the adjustment as the pressure one would use to test the ripeness of a tomato. The intent and goal is to relieve irritation on the nervous system so your baby can be happy and healthy.
We believe healthy families = happy families.
Regardless of age or activity level, proper spinal care can ensure optimal nervous system function, expression of life, and overall health wellness. We believe that wellness chiropractic care aids in keeping you and your family functioning efficiently and effectively so you can live the best version of you!
