Take the Power Back!


Greetings Friend,

Let’s get right to it….People want health. But health requires discipline. One of the main problems with our current health consciousness and health care system is that the majority of people take short cuts because they don’t want to do the work. Health takes effort and is a byproduct of being aligned with nature and all of its known and undiscovered laws.

Here’s the deal….come close….Health has been miserably taught and practiced for decades. People want it but have difficulty applying its simple principles because they don’t know where to begin. They are confused how to feed their bodies and minds.

We need to rehabilitate our heath care tradition to improve the transmission of life energy through our bodies and to the next generation. You see …the process of achieving and maintaining health can be transformational. To transcend we require alignment on all levels…physical, emotional, mental, social, financial, sexual, and psychic. Optimal alignment takes energy, discipline, and will power. With optimal alignment our bodies can adapt normally and efficiently to the flow of life around us.

The Life Center Chiropractic has a vision of health & wellness… and we stick close to it. We even have a manifesto to support our philosophy, science, and artistic expression.

Now if you are currently being served at our office…Thank you for allowing us to serve you! If you aren’t currently under chiropractic care and are interested in getting your spine checked, aligned and moving with grace and ease…give us call. We’d love to be your chiropractic home!

So until we see you in person… have a spectacular day!

Chiropractically Yours,

Dr. Jeremy Brook

P.S. Enjoy this music clip from Rage Against the Machine called Take the Power Back. If this doesn’t fire you up, it’s because of one of two things….#1. You hate hard rock or # 2. You hate hard rock. It fires me up….so I hope you get inspired by the song’s the raw energy! Be warned …. there are a couple bad words sprinkled throughout the song.

The Spinechecker Becomes Webster Technique Certified

Chiropractic in Pregnancy for Safer Births

This past April I began my training with the ICPA, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, by becoming certified with the Webster Technique. Check out what Dr. Jeanne Ohm has to say about it!

The Webster Technique: A Technique for Pregnant Women

Written by Jeanne Ohm, D.C.

You have seen the Webster Technique — that chiropractic technique to help pregnant mothers with breech babies — featured on The Learning Channel’s hit series “A Baby Story.” You have read about it in Mothering magazine and Midwifery Today. You have seen it on the Internet. You have heard it talked about by birthing professionals. Perhaps potential patients have asked you about it. But what is it?

The Webster Technique, discovered by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), is a specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant mothers. It is a chiropractic technique designed to relieve the causes of intrauterine constraint.

Formerly known as Webster’s “In-Utero Constraint Technique” or “Webster’s Breech Turning Technique,” the Webster Technique was developed by Dr. Webster in 1978. For over 20 years, it has been highly successful in relieving intrauterine constraint and allowing babies to get into the best possible position for birth.

What is intrauterine constraint? Intrauterine constraint is defined as any forces external to the developing fetus that obstructs the normal movement of the fetus. Intrauterine constraint can prevent the developing fetus from attaining a head down vertex position and achieving a vaginal birth, resulting in cesarean section delivery. Today, nearly 13% of all cesarean deliveries performed are due to breech presentation.

In 1985, the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed 15% as the highest acceptable limit for cesarean section rates. This figure was based on the cesarean section rates of countries with the lowest perinatal mortality rates in the world. In 1991, the figure was adopted as a goal for the year 2000 by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

Currently, approximately 4.6 % of all singleton pregnancies develop into breech presentation and the incidence of perinatal mortality with breech presentation is approximately four times that of a vertex presentation. While many infants in breech presentation before 34 weeks will convert spontaneously to a cephalic presentation, few will do so afterward.

Decreasing the number of caesareans for breech presentation has been offered as a strategy to reach the Healthy People 2000 goal of 15% cesarean section rate. The importance of preventing intrauterine constraint and subsequent cesarean section delivery is apparent, considering in the United States approximately 22% of all births were cesarean section deliveries. In Canada the incidence of cesarean section ranges from 15%-22%, depending on the province. The Webster Technique is a chiropractic means of decreasing the number of cesareans for breech presentation.

Performance of the Webster Technique involves analysis of the relationship of the bones of the pelvis, and correction of aberrant biomechanics through the use of a light force chiropractic adjustment of the sacrum (Step 1). It also involves analysis and relief of …
