Dr. Melissa Waszak has recently completed the requirements of the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA) Perinatal Care 12 hour course.  This course, developed and instructed by Dr. Jeanne Ohm, covers technique, case management and evidence informed practice for pregnancy, birth and infancy. The program also reviews common disorders in pregnancy, chiropractic co-management with other birth care providers, safety, efficacy and contraindications as well as certifies practitioners in the 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 and in doing so, improve neuro-biomechanical function and balance in the pelvis. In the care of pregnant women, sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e. dystocia).

The Webster technique has been shown to be a safe and effective chiropractic analysis and adjustment throughout pregnancy.

Dr. Waszak is a 2011 graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO and currently practices at Aligned Health & Wellness.
