Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Pregnant women have safer and more comfortable births as a result of having their pelvis properly aligned with the Webster Technique, which addresses the physical structures affected during pregnancy such as pelvic bones, low back and hip muscles, nerves and supportive ligaments of the uterus. Many women report that their pregnancies were easier and their delivery times shorter when they received chiropractic care.

We are known throughout the Oakland area for our ability to treat babies and kids of all ages – offering gentle, non-invasive, effective chiropractic treatments that encourage healing and optimal health for your family.
On your first visit with Dr. Kara she will do a thorough review of your health history, perform a chiropractic evaluation of your spine and Neuro-Functional testing of your nervous system. Your health goals and concerns will also be addressed. Typically you will receive your first adjustment on this visit as well as instructions for any needed self-care or additional referral. You can expect the initial visit to take approximately an hour. You will be invited to schedule a follow up visit where you and Dr. Kara will go over your exam results, what they mean and discuss the best chiropractic “game plan” to achieve the results you desire. Your second visit will be about 30 minutes. You will have the opportunity to have all your questions answered, discuss financial options and choose the type of care you wish to receive.
Chiropractic was founded on the philosophy that our bodies have the innate capacity to heal and thrive from the inside out. We are designed to respond and adapt to stress, however, when it becomes too much for the body to handle we store this stress as tension patterns that can pull on our bones and alignment and contract our muscles in ways that interfere with healthy expression. Chiropractic adjustments are intended to release these stored tension patterns allowing for an easier flow of nerve signals, proper muscle response and structural alignment. Chiropractor are uniquely trained in finding these areas of interference and restoring our innate ability to heal and adapt.
