A chiropractic analysis and adjustment technique specifically designed for pregnancy.

The goal of Webster Technique is not only to alleviate pain and discomfort for women, but also to allow for optimal growth and positioning of the developing baby.
Dr. Erin is certified in this technique through the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA) and has completed additional training with the ICPA to safely care for pregnant women, children and newborns.
McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
(MDT) is a well known assessment and treatment method for spinal and extremity pain used internationally for over 30 years.
MDT utilizes active patient involvement and education to treat a wide variety of conditions involving the entire musculoskeletal system, including pain around the spine, joints, and muscles.
Dr. Erin is certified and trained in the cervical and lumbar regions of MDT.
This practice that involves the insertion of very thin needles at strategic points throughout the body along energy meridians to balance “qi” (energy) and therefore treat various physical and mental conditions.
Acupuncture is most commonly used to reduce musculoskeletal pain, but more broadly can address internal disorders and emotional conditions as well.
It is especially effective to help increase fertility and conception naturally, but may also be used during assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as IUI or IVF to improve fertility outcomes.
Biomedical Dry Needling
This is the practice of using tiny needles, similar to those used in acupuncture, to identify problematic areas in muscle tissue and restore proper function and movement.
Dry needling is often performed in trigger points, or bundles of muscle fibers, that are tight, tender, and produce pain.
Dry needling is often not performed as a standalone procedure, but is a great complement to chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapies to reduce pain and improve motion in the body.
A systems-based approach that focuses on identifying the root cause of disease.
In order to understand the “why” behind the symptoms, a functional medicine approach includes a comprehensive history intake and understanding of a person’s past medical history.
A physical examination and/or lab testing helps identify underlying physiological imbalances that need to be addressed, and then a personalized integrative approach is recommended to improve the overall health and well being of the patient.
Functional Medicine promotes the importance of being proactive about health, versus reactive to symptoms that arise when the body is out of balance. Dr. Erin received her Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and is humbled to have helped so many of her patients achieve optimal health with the use of this approach to care.
