MEET THE DOCTOR

Dr. Carmona has been practicing chiropractic since 2009. However, her experience with chiropractic care goes back much further. As a young dancer and athlete, Dr. Carmona endured her injuries, and has personally experienced the ways that chiropractic care can improve a person’s health and quality of life. Because of this, she is passionate about what she does and works to promote a lifetime of wellness for her patients. Dr. Carmona treats a variety of issues including but not limited to, prenatal/pregnancy care, low back and neck pain, headaches/migraines, sports related injuries, extremity injuries as well as focusing on pediatric chiropractic care and family wellness.

With a unique philosophy on patient care, Dr. Carmona goes above and beyond to show that she is focused on her patients’ optimal health and well-being. She makes it a priority to provide them with personalized experiences, by asking questions to get to the root of their pain and creating treatment plans that are most effective for them.

Dr. Carmona received her Doctor of Chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences-Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, and her bachelor’s degree in psychology from University of California-Riverside. She is also a Webster certified chiropractor from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). In addition, Dr. Carmona is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, The California Chiropractic Association and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and has served as a volunteer chiropractic physician for many local schools and organizations.

Webster Technique

Over 30 years ago, Dr. Larry Webster, DC [1945-1997] shared

his namesake technique with the chiropractic profession to

address sacral subluxation. Since then, the Webster Technique 

and/or its clinical effects has been described in a number of

papers from case reports, case series, survey studies, and

commentaries

The technique was taught by Webster as involving a specific 

sacral analysis, adjustment and related soft tissue release to be

used throughout pregnancy. Due to the empirical

observervations that pregnant women under chiropractic care

with breech fetal pregnancies were reporting correction of

fetal position to vertex following the use of the Webster Technique, the Webster Technique was described in its early days as a "breech turning technique."

In 1999 Connie Webster, the ICPA Executive Director and

Ohm implemented the ICPA Webster Technique Proficiency

Certification class. By the following year, the terms "in-utero-constraint" and "breech" were eliminated from the language 

with the technique simple called, "The Webster Technique." The

reasoning behind this position was that both terms implied the treatment of a condition - the intentional focus of care on an unborn malpresented/ malpositioned fetus rather than the correction of subluxation to restore normal function.

Pediatric Chiropractic

Pediatric Chiropractic care has become increasingly popular.

Many of the very same spinal problems seen in adults began as

early as birth. The birth process is potentially traumatic and can

place mechanical stress on the fetus. Dr. Carmona offers safe and gentle chiropractic care for children of all ages.

(including infant care).
