Pregnancy Chiropractic

Dr. Michelle is pregnancy (Webster) certified through the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association.  Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique where specific sacral adjustments are made to help aide in the mother's pelvic alignment and nervous system.  This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and reduces torsion to the uterus, which may offer a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning. Originally used for breech presentations and then posterior presentations, current research is revealing the benefits of receiving the Webster technique throughout pregnancy for the prevention of dystocia.
