Pregnancy

We are ICPA certified in Webster technique. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation / SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.

 “The ICPA recognizes that in a theoretical and clinical framework of the Webster Technique in the care of pregnant women, sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia).  Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation.32 The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

In this clinical and theoretical framework, it is proposed that sacral misalignment may contribute to these three primary causes of dystocia via uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.  The resulting tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. 

In regards to pregnant mothers, Dr. Webster reported that when a mother sought care and her baby was in a breech position, the restoration of pelvic neuro-biomechanics with this adjustment also frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning.  There are cases published in the chiropractic literature that support this theory. More research is needed and is currently underway by the ICPA.”

Cranial Facial Release

 

A controlled approach and technique that works to unwind the body and help it return to a more optimum function by adjusting the cranial plates of the skull and relieving pinned up pressure that affects the nervous system and reestablishes the flow of cerebrospinal fluid to the body and the proper flow of blood to the brain.

Dr Melissa is available for private and group Foundation Training classes. To book please email drmelissa@oaklandlifechiro.com

Foundation Training is a simple solution that gives you the means to change the way you move and correct the imbalances caused by our modern habits. Through a series of postures, poses, and movements, Foundation Training activates your posterior muscle chain, anchors the hips, decompresses the spine, and teaches you to take the burden of supporting the body out of your joints and put it where it belongs: in your muscles.

Essentially, Foundation Training is a re-wiring of the poor patterns ingrained in our bodies from modern lifestyles that cause pain, deterioration, and inefficiency.

In as little as 10 minutes a day, you can reduce pain, increase strength, and a reclaim your health and vitality.

Upper Cervical Knee Chest

Dr. Melissa is Upper Cervical Revolution certified in KCUCS. “Knee Chest” is one of the most researched and scientifically studied upper cervical techniques. The chiropractors utilize spinal x-rays to detect a specific subluxation misalignment and then use digital thermography to help determine when to adjust and when not to adjust. This is an incredibly unique and powerful adjustment, developed and perfected by the developer of chiropractic himself B.J. Palmer.  Patients with symptoms such as migraines, high blood pressure, vertigo, insomnia, and even multiple sclerosis have shown drastic improvements while under upper cervical care.
