Dr. Jill was exposed to chiropractic at an early age and grew up with a chiropractor in her family. She credits her Uncle Arnold with her strong chiropractic foundation and belief for health without medication and drugs. As a child she went to Uncle Arnold to get adjusted if she had a cold, fell on the playground or simply to get checked and stay healthy.
Dr. Jill has continued this philosophy and loves to treat the whole family, from baby to Grandpa!
Dr. Jill loves to work with pregnant women and children, especially. She has completed her certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice’s Council on Chiropractic Pediatric, so she can better serve the families of her community.
There are many different chiropractic techniques used to adjust the body and every body is different. Dr. Jill has studied different techniques including: Diversified, Activator, Thompson Drop and Cox-Flexion Distraction. She has completed her proficiency rating in the Activator Methods, a technique which utilizes a hand held instrument for the delivery of chiropractic adjustment.
Dr. Jill is also certified in the Webster technique. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic sacral adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. The Webster Technique is used in the care of pregnant women and may help alleviate the possibility of a difficult labor for the mother.
