Seeking Chiropractor Certified in "Webster Technique"

Hello Mamas,

I am 30 weeks pregnant and I've been having pelvic, back and sciatica pains for a while but now it's really becoming excruciating. I am having the hardest time walking and sleeping and I can't bear the idea of the pain getting worse until I give birth in TWO MONTHS time!!
I have done some research on the Internet and found out about what seems to be the best treatment: Chiropractic Manipulation.
I am very in favor of those kinds of natural medicines but I don't know any good Chiropractor in my area (75231). I understand that I have to see a Chiropractor specialized in the Webster Technique that deals with pelvic pregnancy pains. Does anyone of you have experienced this technique? If so, what was the result? I also need to know how much a visit would cost.
Thank you for your help!
Also, if any one of you has found another way to cope with my problem, please don't hesitate to let me know!!

Thanks a lot,

F.

What can I do next?

Texas Back Institute has an amazing pregnancy program through their Chiropractic department. Dr. Patel heads it up. They have many locations in the Metroplex, not sure which would be closest to you. Check out their site at www.texasback.com, or call ###-###-#### to get something set up. Hope this helps!

Hi:

I love my chiropractors and they specialize in Webster technique (at least I think but you can ask them). It is the Lomonoco Family practice. Their number is ###-###-####. They are working with me on those issues becasue I didn't go during my pregnancy and so I am going now. They are not in your area though. They are in the Flower Mound/The Colony area. It is worth the travel to me but I know there are others that are closer. I know of a lady who practices in pregnancy chiropractic care and she is in Irving. I am sure that she knows the Webster technique. Her number is 972/252.3900. Her name is Dr. Chandra Crisp. I have never been to her before though. I hope this helps. Take care and Congratulations

Hi F.,
I'm not sure if my chiropractor uses this technique (since I've just used her post pregnancy), but you can call and ask her.

Her name is Dr. Ruth Y. Durkee at
Hands for Health Chiropractic.
She does specialize in pregnancy adjustments and has been a tremendous help to me (She was referred to me by a friend who saw her during her pregnancy where her baby was breach).
She's located at 4111 N. Central Expy #101
###-###-####
Her pricing varies, depending on the care. She takes most insurance (although sometimes there is a deductible that has to be reached) Once past the initial consultation, she runs about $45/time. She's very thorough and spends lots of time with you, and worth every penny. Not like a lot of others I've been to where they herd you in, use a lot of force, and only take 5 min.
Good luck!
