One of the Techniques utilized by Dr. Kolleen Gregory and Dr. Richard Kachanon for Pregnancy care is Logan Basic. This technique is best described and detailed by one of the top pediatric specialist, Dr. Claudia Anrig, in her article below (excerpt).
The developer of this technique was Hugh. B. Logan, DC, who first presented his new technique, called Universal Health – Basic Technique,
in 1931. Within a few years, it was called simply, Logan Basic Technique (basic because it deals with the sacrum, or base, of the spine). Dr. Logan liked the structural approach to chiropractic and reasoned that since the spine rested on the sacrum, if the sacrum were subluxated or unleveled, it could interfere further with the stabilization of spinal subluxation(s).
He believed sacral subluxation might be the precursor to developing other spinal subluxation. LBT looks at analyzing the spine and its biomechanics, both in normalcy as well as in the patho-biomechanics of pelvic and spinal distortions due to sacral subluxations. This technique views that a sacral subluxation will cause not only spinal misalignments, but also abnormal muscle function which supports the spine. The neurological component of these effects can have profound ramifications in the functions of the body. In regards to pregnancy and labor, normal sacral position and pelvic biomechanics are very necessary. During pregnancy, it’s not uncommon for women to manifest increased tightness of their lumbar and gluteal muscles, including hip pain. LPT has several procedures that can be used during the entire pregnancy to reduce pregnancy-related symptoms and provide optimal pelvic function...
