Dr. Carri Cook is a family wellness chiropractor who takes a special interest in caring for women during and after their pregnancy. She is certified in the Webster technique which is a specific technique used by chiropractors only on a pregnant woman's body during her 9 month journey. The Webster technique reduces interference to the nervous system, improving function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments leading to the reduction of constraint to the woman's uterus allowing the fetus the best opportunity to be positioned for a healthy birth. Dr. Carri also works with many families to help their children (from newborn to teens) live their healthiest life!
