OptiLife is home to two of the most experienced prenatal and pediatric chiropractors in Tampa Florida. Dr. Amanda Metzger and Dr. Daniell Hoeffner have extensive specialized training in the care of mothers, moms-to-be and children. Adjustments will help with the “normal” back-aches and pains associated with pregnancy or the post-natal period,  ensuring optimal spinal and pelvic health. We use specialized approaches for pregnant women, including the Webster technique that was specifically designed to help mothers through their pregnancy.

 

Prenatal Chiropractic Care

The effects of prenatal chiropractic care extend far beyond treating back pain – one of the common side-effects of pregnancy. We understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important because the care we offer affects both mom and child. Proper spinal function is crucial to the development of the baby and makes a huge difference in the well-being of the mom-to-be.

What is the Webster Technique?

The Webster protocol is a specific technique designed to analyze and adjust the woman’s pelvis to reduce sacral subluxation (joint dysfunction), improving the function of the pelvis.  This treatment insures optimal room for your baby to grow and optimal nerve supply to help baby develop to his/her full potential!
