Both Dr. Kolleen Gregory and Dr. Richard Kachanon are Certified in the Webster Technique and are specially trained in pregnacy and pediatric Chiropractic care. Dr. Kolleen Gregory is a pediatric and pregnancy specialist who holds a fellowship from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. She has given birth to two healthy 8+ lbs. baby girls and a 10+ lbs. baby boy, naturally and without the use of drugs or surgery. Her husband Dr. Richard Kachanon is also a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  He started his training by caring for Dr. Kolleen during her own pregnancies! Together they have helped pregnant women and children throughout the community of Pasadena live healthier lives through natural chiropractic care since 2005.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to significantly reduce the length of time a woman labors. First time moms averaged a 24 % shorter labor, while mothers who have already given birth experienced a 39 % reduction in the average labor length, compared to controls (Fallon, 1991). Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can also reduce the likelihood of experiencing back labor (Diakow, 1991). Regular chiropractic adjustments can safely continue up until the time of birth (Penna, 1989). Chiropractic care helps expecting mothers with many of the body changes that occur during pregnancy.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care can be utilized for Newborns to Young adults. A pediatric adjustment is gentle and safe.  A Child's physical anatomy is different than adults and require a qualified Doctors at Focus Chiropractic. We are trusted and honored to help the members of our families.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I can't describe what Focus has done for me. I was in so much pain, especially the way my baby was positioned. After our visit, I went to the OB and he did an ultra sound. My baby literally turned right after I saw you and is now head down. We are both much happier and more comfortable. Not only that, but my fluids were low but after being adjusted they increased. Now his kicks don't hurt as much and he is even moving and kicking more now that the adjustment made room for him. After experiencing an adjustment, my muscles are more relaxed. You guys are amazing and I feel so grateful that you helped me and I look forward to my next visit. I have been to many chiropractors and no one has helped me like Focus Chiropractic. They really know what they are doing and I felt so comfortable there.""
