Dr. Shantai Watson takes a special interest in caring for pregnant women and those who are trying to conceive. During pregnancy, it is important to keep the spine and pelvis in good balance to encourage optimal fetal positioning and a healthy delivery. Dr. Shantai utilizes the Webster Technique which has proven to be an excellent technique for preparing the pelvis for delivery and helping with low back pain that may be experienced through pregnancy. She utilizes special pregnancy pillows that accommodate a “blossoming belly” during your gentle chiropractic adjustment. She will also help you navigate fitness and prescribe specific exercises to prepare your body for the birth and beyond. Healthy moms deliver healthy babies.

Dr. Shantai Watson has completed many hours of special training to give her “little” patients specialized care and attention. She uses very safe, gentle and effective techniques to ensure her pediatric patients are developing properly after birth and the bumps and bruises from just being kids. She is specially trained in primitive reflex integration and cranial work for kids. A child is never too young to receive Chiropractic care, and getting them checked by a chiropractor throughout their milestones is important.

The postpartum period is such an important and sensitive time for a new mother. Many of the issues women face after the birth of their precious baby may be common, but DO NOT need to be their new normal. A few of the more common postpartum conditions that Dr. Shantai treats are pelvic floor pain/discomfort, urinary incontinence (leakage), diastasis recti, headaches/migraines, hand swelling/pain, and many more. For some women, their main goal may be pain relief, while others may wish to return to CrossFit without any leakage. Book a consultation with Dr. Shantai to discuss your postpartum needs and goals.
Dr. Shantai Watson has a passion for treating sports injuries, injury prevention and performance care. As a former athlete herself who pursued her chiropractic education after chiropractic helped her recover from a devastating sports injury, she understands. She uses a combination of chiropractic, soft tissue techniques and modalities and rehabilitation to get athletes back to their sport as quick as possible. She sees many athletes, old and young, including dancers, skiers, yogis and triathletes.
