Dr. Larry Webster, Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), developed a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment which enables chiropractors to establish balance in a woman’s pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments. This balanced state in the pelvis has been clinically shown to allow for optimal fetal positioning. The technique is known as the Webster Technique.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported in the July/August 2002 issue an 82% success rate of babies turning vertex when doctors of chiropractic used the Webster Technique.
Currently, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout the pregnancy. A balanced pelvis allows babies to move into the best position for birth. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also decreases chances of dystocia (difficult labor) and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.

At Chiropractic & Wellness Center, specific exercises will be given to strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Muscles and connective tissues that are too tight or weak put increased stress on the spine and joints, which causes injuries over time. Strong muscles support and protect the joints and improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care. Many muscle imbalances are due to postural abnormalities: working all day hunched over a computer or long hours spent sitting/driving can negatively affect your posture. With targeted corrective exercises and stretches along with neccessary ergonomic and lifestyle changes we can help to improve your posture and prevent further injuries.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While Dr. Radoslovich will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
Chiropractic helps patients achieve total health, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling will assist a patient on which supplements are beneficial for optimal health? We can provide basic nutritional advise or develop a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
