Webster Technique for Pregnant Women
The Webster Technique was designed to help remove subluxations in pregnant women and restore balance to the pelvic area through adjustments. This helps to relieve the pressure and stress that can be placed on the pelvic area during pregnancy and childbirth and helps with optimal fetal positioning.

Chiropractic Care for Infants
So how does a chiropractor treat an infant? Dr. Philip E. Bland says that adjustments are made using pinky or other finger pressure on the spine. The infant spine is still gelatinous and requires very little energy to correct. A misalignment or “subluxation” in the spine of a newborn can interfere with normal development, producing uneven pressure on growth plates producing an imbalanced growth or irritation to the delicate spinal nerves, which control and coordinate every stage of that infants growth and development.
Chiropractic Care for Children
Children particularly need chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems we experience as adults actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about how many times a day a child falls when they are learning to walk, sometimes 10-20 times per day), broke something or simply had poor posture (which is extremely common today). Posture problems particularly result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television or playing rough or carrying backpacks all day long at school.
Prevalent causes of problems are sports, dance, cheerleading and gymnastics related. All of these activities exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column – which can result in misalignments that can still cause pain and problems decades down the road.
Chiropractic Care for Adults and Seniors
It’s never too late to start taking care of your spine. Once the misalignments which cause pressure to your spine and nerve system are removed, your body will start to heal as your natural recuperative powers start to kick in and flow again. The aches and pains will leave and your overall health will benefit. Chiropractic care helps many common complaints such as digestive issues, allergies, headaches, weight management and more!
