Advanced Training in Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Expecting mothers deserve to feel well during their pregnancy. Physical changes during pregnancy are inevitable, but having an experienced chiropractor certified in the Webster Technique to help improve alignment and movement during pregnancy can help mom feel well.
Dr. Christianson, clinic director at COOR Wellness, is proactive in obtaining advanced training in pregnancy chiropractic care and is certified in Webster Technique.
After taking the required maternity and pediatric training in school, he wanted to understand how to help expecting mothers better. While in chiropractic college he took advanced training and was first Webster Certified in 2005 and re-certified in 2015. There is a significant difference in seeing a chiropractor who is certified in Webster Technique versus some who say they ‘do’ or ‘know’ Webster technique.
Furthermore, chiropractic care is only part of the pregnancy care plan. You’re going to want to be strong and stable through the pregnancy. You want to be strong after the baby is delivered. At COOR Wellness you’ll receive self-care strategies and strengthening support so you’re well after your pregnancy.
