Getting Started

To determine if chiropractic is right for you, we recommend you speak to your medical doctor to ensure you don’t have any medical complications before starting care with us. We will also provide you with a thorough examination that would uncover any reasons you shouldn’t be adjusted.

During your care, we’ll be extremely gentle. You can lie down on your stomach, thanks to our pregnancy pillows. Our methods include Diversified, Chiropractic BioPhysics® and the Webster Technique. Our goal is to keep you moving, reduce your pain, and improve your function.

We may recommend you come in more often if you’re dealing with a specific problem. We’ll discuss what’s right for you during your initial consultation.

Dr. Amy Is Webster Certified & an ICPA Member

Dr. Amy, passionate about assisting expectant mothers in achieving the healthiest pregnancy possible, provides specialized care for pregnant clients at our clinic. As a certified practitioner of the Webster Technique, she focuses on reducing nervous system stress, balancing pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments, and optimizing pelvic function during pregnancy and childbirth.

The Webster Technique is a chiropractic analysis that involves gentle sacrum adjustments aimed at enhancing nervous system function and body performance. This method works to improve pelvic balance, which in turn reduces unnecessary tension in connected muscles and ligaments.

A balanced pelvis is crucial for pregnant women, as imbalances can lead to uneven pulling on muscles and ligaments, potentially restricting the baby’s ability to assume the optimal birth position. The Webster Technique also helps alleviate low back pain, increase mobility, and provide increased comfort during pregnancy.

In addition to her expertise in the Webster Technique, Dr. Amy is a proud member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). This global organization supports family chiropractors through evidence-based practice, professional skill development, and educational resources for family well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do adjustments hurt the baby?

No, in fact, adjustments during pregnancy help Mom move and feel better, and reduce imbalances in the pelvis and surrounding muscles and ligaments, so that the baby has the space to get into the best possible position for birth. Chiropractic adjustments are very gentle and specifically focused to work into the areas that are restricted.

Additionally, drop piece tables are used to help reduce force needed to improve function and balance the pelvis. Finally, we use pregnancy pillows at our office, which allow Mom to lie on her front during adjustments and be well cushioned.

Does chiropractic care help the delivery?

It may help a woman have a smoother and quicker delivery.

Should chiropractic care be continued after the birth?

Yes, we would recommend care to be continued. That’s because delivery can be a challenging event for many moms. There can be many different distressing issues in childbirth, such as a difficult delivery that’s traumatic for the mom or the baby. So if there are issues, we want to help Mom and Baby get back into the optimal structural position.

Why should I get adjusted before pregnancy?

When you’re being adjusted and treated beforehand, your spine, muscles, joints, and ligaments are sitting in the best possible position. As you move into pregnancy, chiropractic will help you be as healthy as possible and best able to carry your pregnancy.
