My Focus is on the cause, not just the symptom. I place an emphasis on posture, musculoskeletal imbalances, biomechanics of the body, and nutrition. I customize my treatments to the individual utilizing a variety of adjusting techniques and soft tissue work. I believe in the importance of educating patients about their bodies to empower them as an active role in their recovery. I enjoy guiding my patients to be proactive with their health by giving stretches and exercises to aid in quicker recovery from injury and promote longevity of general wellness. I am a strong believer in mindfulness to keep a healthy balance of body, mind, and spirit.
I am eager to create an atmosphere of serenity and warmth. Giving this to patients is crucial so that they allow themselves to relax and release mental or emotional stress that may be contributing to the physical stress on their bodies.
I am a licensed Chiropractic Physician nationally and in the state of Oregon. My treatment focuses include but are not limited to:
- Injury due to auto accidents and whiplash
- Sports injuries
- Pain associated with repetitive daily activities and stress
- Peripartum mommies and children
I am Webster certified, a member of the American Pregnancy Association (APA), and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I have an extra emphasis on working with pregnant mommies, post-partum mommies, and children. Pelvic balance greatly influences the birthing process and helps decrease dystocia, one of the reasons for obstructed labor, allowing for mother and baby to have an easier labor.
Webster technique is a gentle treatment used to balance the pelvis and create an idyllic pelvic bowl for the baby to position him/herself properly for labor. It can be helpful for breech presentation, but also to maintain balance even if the baby is already in position. This technique is all about balancing the mother’s muscles, ligaments, and pelvic alignment, and does not in any way involve the doctor moving the baby. It’s about creating a nest that the baby will be more eager to lie in properly. The baby gets to move him/herself if and when ready.
