Dr. Wagner provides gentle, effective chiropractic care for the entire family. Her advanced training and certification in pediatric and pregnancy care provides her with the knowledge and experience that very few others in this region have.

PEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTIC CARE

If you are looking for an expert in pediatric chiropractic care who will walk you through the process step by step, provide demonstrations of infant and toddler adjustments, and answer any questions you may have prior to proceeding with care…then you are in the right place!

Chiropractic care for infants and children is very different from that of an adult. Treatment generally consists of slow, gentle stretching movements with light fingertip pressure over the specific area of the spine that is problematic. This method is very safe, gentle and effective.

Some of the most common reasons that parents seek chiropractic care for their infants and children include the following:

  • Colic/fussiness
  • Ear infections
  • Reflux (spitting up)
  • Torticollis (preferring the head turned in a certain direction) & flat spots on the head
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Digestive problems
  • Falls/injuries
  • Wellness Checkups

Dr. Wagner is one of few providers in the region who holds the full CACCP certification in pediatrics and pregnancy care through the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics. She is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

PREGNANCY CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Pregnancy, although a beautiful time in a woman’s life, may cause unpleasant changes and a significant amount of discomfort.

The most common reasons patients seek out chiropractic care in pregnancy include the following:

  • Back & Neck Pain
  • Sciatica (Pain down the leg)
  • Baby positioning in utero
  • Morning Sickness (Acupuncture may help alleviate nausea and fatigue)

Dr. Wagner is Webster Certified, which is a chiropractic technique that helps to restore proper neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis. Historically, many patients with malpositioned babies have reported positive outcomes with the baby’s position in-utero following this specific technique.

GENERAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions affecting joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves of the body. Treatment consists of a wide range of hands-on techniques designed to improve function of the joints and relieve nerve irritation, which often results in relief of pain and muscle spasm, as well as improved body function. The most common techniques/treatments utilized by Dr. Wagner include the following:

 

  • Gentle infant & child chiropractic adjusting
  • Manual/Diversified spinal and extremity adjusting
  • Thompson drop table adjusting

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is an Eastern Medicine technique that uses very fine needles in specific points of the body that aid in the healing process. Acupuncture is the oldest continuously practiced form of medical care in the world, and it is used by nearly one-third of the world as the primary form of healthcare.

Commonly asked acupuncture questions:

Does it hurt when the needles are inserted?
Most people say that it does not hurt. In fact, many times the patient is unaware that the needle was even inserted! The needles are approximately the size of a strand of hair.

What conditions can be helped with acupuncture?
The list of conditions that may be helped with acupuncture treatment is virtually endless! Some of the most common conditions/symptoms that people seek acupuncture treatment for include the following:

  • Acute & chronic pain
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Digestive disorders (Crohn’s, irritable bowel disease, etc)
  • Female disorders (infertility, menopause, endometriosis, PMS, etc)
  • Addictions (smoking, alcohol, etc)
  • Stress
  • Wellness care

Is Acupuncture covered by my health insurance?
Some insurance companies cover acupuncture, but please call your insurance carrier to verify this coverage for your specific plan.
