Meet Dr. Amelia Dr. Amelia Rodrock received her bachelor’s degree in Human Biology from Cleveland University and her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College in April 2013. Dr. Amelia has dedicated her practice to restoring function to the nervous system. Without an optimally functioningnervous system, you can not have an optimally functioning body. Every organ, tissue and cell in the body is supplied by the nervous system in some way. The spine is the hub of the nervous system. Restoring function to the spine ultimately restores health to the body. Optimal Health and wellness are the main goal of Dr. Amelia with all of her patients. Dr. Amelia believes that chiropractic care is essential for all ages. Dr. Amelia Rodrock is a family and pediatric chiropractor specializing in the treatment of women (pre and post natal), infants and children. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy plays an important role in the health of both the mother and growing child. It keeps the mother feeling comfortable, while enabling her to cope with the physical changes going on in her body. Dr. Amelia uses the Webster’s Technique to aid in the treatment of pregnant mothers. The Webster’s Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In so doing, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. Dr. Amelia also specializes in the use of acupuncture to help induce labor. Acupuncture can stimulate oxytocin to be produced, which is the natural hormone that initiates labor. Acupuncture can also create a state of calm for the mother helping her body naturally go into labor. Due to the unfortunate problems caused by increased C-section rates, poor infant health and higher mortality rates, Dr. Amelia feels that it is extremely important to have your child checked for subluxation as soon as possible after birth. Subluxation is a misalignment or lack of motion within the spine that results in stress and ill health in the body. The birth process is a very common cause of subluxation, especially a birth process that resulted in many interventions. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to detect and remove these subluxations, and doing so will help to ensure that ill health does not follow for your newborn.
