Coming Soon: Saturday Appointments
You've been asking for it, so here it is!!! We are pleased to be offering Saturday appointments starting May 13th.
Dr. Tara will be in the clinic for adjusting hours from 9am-12noon and Special Appointments (New Clinic Member Appointments) from 12noon-1pm.
NEW: Direct Billing Policy
We are more than happy to be able to direct bill to your insurance company on your behalf, however it does take quite additional administrative effort which we are finding takes away from our ability to delivery superior customer service. As such we have slightly modified the way we do direct billing and will require a credit card on file in order to continue to offer this service.
Unfortunately we are unable to use anything other than a credit card at this time.
Our patient management software is highly safe and HIPPA compliant with your data. We can't see the credit card information as it is stored directly through our POS terminal (you tap it and it stores into your profile) and we will never run your credit card for outstanding fees without first notifying you.
However, if you are still uncomfortable providing these details, you can pay at your appointments and we can provide you a 'paid' invoice for you to submit.
Thanks for your cooperation!

'Beautiful Babies' FREE Virtual Workshop
Monday April 24th 7:30pm
Beautiful Babies is a free workshop for parents who want to learn more about the natural growth and developmental patterns in their 0-2 year old babies.
Our Pediatric doctors will explain the neurological development that a child should go through, in what order and what ages.
They will also provide helpful tips and exercises you can do in The comfort of your own home to help support their developmental milestones and brain growth.
Health Tip: 4 Most Common Issues Baby Chiropractic may help with
Plagiocephaly is the flattening of a baby’s head on one side of the head or the whole back of the head. This develops when an infant’s soft skull becomes flattened in a specific area.
Plagiocephaly itself shouldn’t be painful for babies. The risk is that they will struggle to hit their developmental milestones due to the underlying issues with gross motor function, subluxation, torticollis, and so forth.
Torticollis in an infant is a stiff, stuck, and twisted neck where the child’s head is continually bent to one side, making it difficult to turn and rotate their head and neck in both directions.
While more significant cases are easy to spot by both parents and providers, it’s been our experience that most cases of torticollis are easily overlooked and missed by standard pediatricians. The most common form of torticollis is acquired, and the most common cause is birth trauma.
Developmental milestones are significant physical and behavioral signs or markers of optimal development in infants and young children. Things like holding their head up, tummy time, sitting up, rolling over, crawling, walking, and talking provide important information about how your child’s development is progressing. Each child develops at their own pace, but we can use these developmental age markers to help find out when things are really getting off track, or trouble may be brewing.
A tongue tie, also known as ankyloglossia, is a condition that affects some newborns where the strip of tissue that anchors the tongue to the floor of the mouth is too short, restricting movement and function of the tongue. This can make it difficult for a baby to breastfeed effectively, as they may be unable to properly latch and nurse effectively.
If the tongue tie is surgically released without consideration of subluxation and sympathetic dominant neurology likely at play, and a Pediatric Chiropractor is not first consulted… things could be made worse initially instead of better after the surgery resulting in the need for additional revisions within a few months.
Clinic Member Spotlight: Baby Eva
Meet our first Beautiful Baby Eva! Eva's mom, Sabrina, was no stranger to chiropractic. With Eva being her third baby and having brought her previous two for Baby Chiropractic, it was an easy decision to get Baby Eva checked shortly after birth.
With regular chiropractic care for Eva I noticed a difference in the comfort during and after a feed. Plus more regular bowel movements. For my premature daughter her milestones were expected at an adjusted age but when I started seeing Dr. Tara she was meeting milestones at her birth age :)
Click below to read more about how Baby Eva is powering through her first year and eating, sleeping, pooping and hitting her milestones like a champ!
This month we are talking about all things that create 'Beautiful Babies' and how parents can help support their growth & development naturally and safely. We will teach you the simple science behind how your baby's brain is growing and how movement is directly tied to their brain development. We will then set you and your baby up for success with home recommendations to support this growth with safe and natural options.
Clinic Member Spotlight: Baby Lennox
Meet this Beautiful Baby Lennox! He wasn't always the smiley, relaxed little guy you see here. We caught up with his mom Chelsea, this month and asked her to share why she makes regular wellness chiropractic care a priority for Baby Lennox.
Where to begin! We have seen so many benefits from chiropractic care. Before starting chiropractic care my baby was very tense at all times with clenched fists and seemed very unhappy and uncomfortable. Since starting chiropractic care his hands are relaxed he is happy, smiling, and babbling, we are seeing longer hours of independent sleep, better digestion, less congestion.
Click below to read what an adjustment looks like and how Baby Lennox has transformed from a gassy, fussy, inconsolable newborn, to the happiest, sweetest little dude!
