Frequently Asked Questions
YES. Dr. Christin utilizes The Webster Technique - a Chiropractic technique that balances the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis. This reduces tension in the uterus and offers more room for the developing baby. This can improve the likelihood of natural delivery and to prevent breech births and the need for caesarian-sections in some individuals.
Don't wait until you're extremely uncomfortable or in pain to seek care.
It is safe to start Chiropractic during pregnancy as soon as the second trimester (typically around or before 20 weeks).
Craniosacral therapy is a form of bodywork that uses gentle touch to palpate and manipulate the bones of the skull, face, jaw, and pelvis. This therapy is extremely relaxing and has no known side-effects. It is particularly effective in the treatment of headaches and migraines in adults. In babies it is most often used to correct skull deformities and latching problems during breast feeding.
Having your child evaluated should occur as close to their delivery date as possible. In our clinic we have evaluated newborns as young as three days old. Its never too soon to seek the opinion of an expert on how Chiropractic can benefit your newborn.
