Does your chiropractic office see only pregnant women and children?

Absolutely not! We love seeing the ENTIRE family! At Anatomy Power, we have extensive training in pediatrics and prenatal care that sets us apart from other chiropractic offices. We recommend and encourage people from all walks of life to come in and get checked. In addition to adjusting all humans, we adjust animals too!

Is it safe to be adjusted by a chiropractor while pregnant?

What's amazing is that not only is it completely safe to get adjusted during pregnancy, but we also have special techniques that we utilize specifically for our pregnant mommas. And, we mean it when we say we are with you for every step of your pregnancy journey. When you're a part of our APW family, you can also choose to add a chiropractor to your birth team as well as experience our golden month postpartum care feature. Dr. Trace has extensive experience attending births as a doula, and one of her greatest joys is getting the call to support and adjust momma in any stage of labor or postpartum. The most common feedback we get from our new mommas is that they feel greater ease in their bodies when receiving chiropractic care. Our moms report they feel empowered, connected and strong during labor and also experience easier and shorter labor times. As the body continually adapts to the changes throughout each phase of pregnancy, chiropractic care can help with so much more than sciatica and round ligament pain.

Why should I get my child checked by a chiropractor?

Many parents choose positive pathways to health and wellness to support their children as they live, play and grow. Pediatric Chiropractic care is a preventative and proactive approach to wellness. Pediatric chiropractic care is both safe and gentle, empowering children to thrive from the start. Many of our families like to have their babies checked in the first moments, first days, or first weeks of life. We focus on empowering our practice members to have the most optimally functioning nervous systems, creating health early in life! See our Pediatrics page to learn more about pediatric chiropractic care.

What is the Webster Technique and how will it benefit me throughout my pregnancy?

The Webster Technique is a certification attained through specialized and continued training via the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. The Webster Technique is a method of focused, specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the pelvis and its surrounding ligaments. This technique facilitates the optimal neurobiomechanical function of the pelvis and relieves intrauterine constraint caused by torsion or tension. During pregnancy, we utilize the Webster Technique to promote ample space for baby as it grows and moves in the womb, in addition to creating an optimal position to prepare mom and baby for the birth process.

Can I use my FSA/HSA card benefits towards care at Anatomy Power?

Yes, many of our practice members choose this payment method to add chiropractic care to their health & wellness lifestyle to best adapt to the everyday stresses of modern life.

Why do people get the Insight scan?

We live our lives through our nervous systems, and knowledge about how your nervous system is working can provide us with useful information about how best to elevate your health and wellness. Using the Insight Scanning system allows us to read-through heart rate variability, thermography and surface EMG- how your nervous system is functioning and how your body is adapting to stress.

Once I start seeing a chiropractor, do I have to come forever?

At Anatomy Power, we believe that our best lives are lived with a clear nervous system. Our practice members regularly choose to continue care to elevate their health and wellness because they notice positive changes to the way they feel and function post adjustment. In our office, we understand the importance of having a clear and connected neuro-spinal system that allows for optimal communication and brain-body connection. It is our joy to serve you and your family throughout your lives!

How long has Anatomy Power Wellness been serving the Danville community?

Anatomy Power Wellness has been a beacon of health and hope in the Danville community since it was founded in 1998 by Dr. Leslie Hewitt, DC. On a mission to create healthier communities with brighter tomorrows, Dr. Hewitt, who was originally from Canada, chose Danville, CA, for its small-town community values. In addition to her 22 years as a chiropractor, Dr. Hewitt completed two terms as president of the California Chiropractic Association and has remained on the Board of Directors of the California Chiropractic Association as immediate past president. She was named Alumna of the Year in 2016 by her alma mater, Life Chiropractic College West. In 2018, she received the Soroptimist Ruby Award For Women Helping Women. Today, her finger remains on the pulse of the community as she continues to lead the charge for chiropractic, remaining active socio-politically in chiropractic legislation, mentoring fellow chiropractors, and empowering leadership for women through the WOW Talks. Dr. Hewitt maintains an active connection to the legacy of health she created in our Danville community through Anatomy Power Wellness. Every so often, she's in the office, smiling, laughing, collaborating and connecting at our office events and celebrating with the families she watched grow and the doctors she once mentored.
