Chiropractic is a "whole person approach" to wellness which means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and making whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. We focus on finding a subluxation or interference in the nervous system’s natural ability to provide clear & concise communication from brain to body and back.
Poor posture/biomechanics, trauma, and stress (chemical, physical and emotional) can contribute to spinal misalignments. All of our doctors practice full-spine adjusting and assess not only the spine but any other involved joint for each patient. This includes cranial bones, cervical spine, thoracic spine, ribs, lumbar spine, pelvis & extremities. Each area is assessed for mobility, inflammation/edema, muscle tension & larger tension patterns in order to restore your body and unwind any of the distortions limiting life expression. We serve a diverse population and strive to tailor our care for each individual and meet them where they are at in their healing journey.
PREGNANCY + PEDIATRICS
Pregnancy and the postpartum period are an exciting time of growth, not only for your child, but for you as a blossoming parent as well. This life-changing transition propels mama and family to new levels of fulfillment and also to new levels of stress.
We empower women to step into their strength and feel deeply connected to their bodies and families. We are here to support you through that process of becoming the best parent you can be, with a balanced and unencumbered nervous system, and a balanced and unencumbered pelvis.
All of our practitioners have undergone specialized training in order to best serve you through this time. Our chiropractors,Dr. Mandy, Dr. Rachael and Dr. Jasmine are all certified in Webster Technique which was developed to bring more ease to the sacropelvic system and can help optimize your odds for an easier birth. Our massage therapist Adelle has extensive experience and specific training in prenatal massage.
We also work with newborns and pediatrics, helping to ensure that they are developing properly and set up to thrive.
As athletes themselves, all of our practitioners see athletes and weekend warriors of all ages and sports in the office. Using chiropractic adjustments, extremity adjustments, Soft-Tissue Mobilization, and other movement modalities, individuals are able to recover quicker from training/tournaments/races and reach their optimum potential. Dr. Mandy has worked extensively with athletic populations and has previously served as the Team Doctor for an East Bay Elite Club Ultimate Frisbee team as well as two Semi-Pro Ultimate Teams.
X-rays allow our practitioners a window into how your spine has been adapting to the stressors placed on it. We prioritize specificity and ruling out any red flags or other underlying factors in order to ensure you receive the best possible care.
X-rays are included in the initial exam for new patients during their initial visit. While not required for each patient, they are highly recommended as they give extra detail into the story of the individual’s spine.
If you are a fellow practitioner and wish to send a patient in for X-rays, contact the office and we will do our best to support you.
