Pregnancy and pediatric care
I was referred to HealthWise Chiropractic for treatment of painful symptoms associated with my first pregnancy. At 5 months pregnant, I suffered from low back pain, had difficulty walking, and had trouble getting in and out of bed.
As of today I feel 70% better than when I first started chiropractic care. Dr. Vera has been knowledgeable, friendly and informative through the whole process. She goes above and beyond the average chiropractor!
The best part is that my baby is in the head-down position for delivery. Even when my OB/GYN told me my baby was breech, Dr. Vera reassured me that everything was going to be OK. I am so glad I did not have to undergo external cephalic version, or turning the baby from outside of the abdomen so that it’s in the head-down position. Chiropractic care has helped keep my pelvis aligned so that my baby has enough room to grow and move.
I would definitely recommend the patient and loving care I received from HealthWise Chiropractic.

I am a mother of a three-year-old boy and pregnant with my second. My first baby was breech and had to be born via c-section. I first met Dr. Vera during a M.O.P.S. meeting where she was educating us on how chiropractic can help with pregnancy discomforts. Also, she mentioned how chiropractic can be beneficial in balancing the muscles and bones of the hips to allow for the baby to be in a good position for delivery. My goal with my second pregnancy was to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarian) and to do it as naturally as possible.
My chiropractic experience has been great! Dr. Vera has been helping me achieve my goals with this pregnancy and always answers all of my questions. I feel she spends more than enough time with me explaining things and easing my fears about the delivery process.
So far, I have been more comfortable and relaxed, and my back pain has been reduced. The best news of all, my baby is in the proper head-down position! I am looking forward to meeting my second little boy.

I brought my 6-week-old daughter in to HealthWise Chiropractic & Nutrition because I had heard chiropractic care could help with symptoms of colic. She had gas pains and cried everyday for hours. I switched formulas to try to see if that was the culprit, but that only constipated her. Needless to say, I was as tired and cranky as she was!
I found Dr. Vera by way of her website. Since she specialized in pediatric chiropractic I decided to make an appointment. I could tell from the first visit that Dr. Vera was as commited as I was to improving her condition.
In less than 2 weeks I had a different baby! She wasn’t screaming or crying anymore, she started smiling a few weeks ago, she is a totally different baby.
Happy baby, Happy mama!
