We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Pierce recently completed the Advanced VBAC Certification from !

She says “the transformation that occurs from conception to postpartum is a journey. To be able to guide, encourage and sit with women and birthing people through this time is an honor. As a mother myself, I saw so much value in having a care team that supported my vision for birth. I hope to give the same back to my community.”

(Isn’t she best?! 😍)

Last week Dr. Kochersberger, Dr. Clemente, and Dr. Hickey were invited to present to the Doula Cooperative of Rochester about chiropractic care during pregnancy and why seeing a chiropractor is so important. They also shared about the benefits of chiropractic care for infants with feeding issues, and how much it can help with improving latch, milk transfer, etc., and how extensive the training to be pediatric certified is (hint: not even all pediatric chiropractors work with infants/feeding).

Rochester is so lucky to have such an amazing birth community that works so closely together to support families in their birth experience and during the 4th trimester!

Special thanks to Molly Deutschbein, Bert Kiehle, and Morgan Moy for organizing this opportunity ❤️

Have a high deductible plan? What does this mean in January? 🤔

👉 This means you pay the allowed cost of your health care visits until your deductible is met (these allowed amounts are set by your insurance company).

👉 For existing patients at RFC, it means you pay for your treatment that day.

👉 For new patients, it means you pay for the exam and your treatment that day.

👉 These costs are much lower than most people expect, and shouldn’t be a reason you avoid coming in for care. 〽️

👉 You can call your insurance company, or our staff can help give you an estimate of the cost ahead of your visit - give us a call!🤳

Tired of New Year’s resolutions? Enter habit stacking. It’s not about grand overhauls; it’s the subtle art of linking tiny habits to create a routine that actually sticks. 💪

💭 Imagine this: You’re already brushing your teeth in the morning. Add a short stretch or a moment of gratitude right after. Boom! Habit stacked. The magic lies in pairing a new habit with one you’ve already mastered, making it effortless to adopt.

Benefits? Plenty! It builds consistency by riding on the coattails of existing habits. It also simplifies change by breaking it into bite-sized chunks. Plus, it’s a surefire way to nurture habits that last. 👏

This approach doesn’t demand an overhaul of your life but rather integrates seamlessly into your existing routine. Let’s ditch the drastic resolutions this year and try the subtle revolution of habit stacking! 🙌

It’s cold and flu season, and we’re hearing from so many families that they’re struggling with illnesses! 😷 Whether it’s a cold at the office or a virus from daycare/school, there’s a lot going around. What are our doctors’ biggest tips? Frequent hand washing and taking vitamin D! 🙌

Did you know: Supplementing with vitamin D not only helps prevent upper respiratory infections including influenza A, but it also helps interrupt symptoms of an infection already in progress and shorten the life of the virus? 🤔

You can purchase high quality vitamin D supplements right in our office, or your doctor can send you a link to order from our online dispensary (so you don’t even have to leave the house)! Have questions? Click the 🔗 in our bio to schedule, and ask at your next appointment.

Our office continues to grow, and we’ve added retail to make purchasing high quality health and wellness products convenient for you! 🙌

With so much out there in the wellness market, it’s hard to know the quality of what you’re purchasing, *and* to balance price with quantity. 👉 So our doctors did the research for you. We’ve selected high quality vitamins and supplements made with pure ingredients and contaminant free (including fillers and heavy metals). Lots of our items are also plant-based, vegan and free of gluten, dairy, and soy.

We carry what we use ourselves or at home with our own families, so you can feel confident what you’re buying is safe and effective. 🫶

Instead of Amazon or big grocery, consider shopping small at RFC! 👏👏👏

Stay tuned for some highlights in our stories, and ask any questions at your next appointment!

Last week Dr. Kelsey Pierce talked with dancers at about hip pain/popping, what causes it, when to see a specialist, and exercises to build body awareness about how our hips, pelvis and rib cage move. 🩰

As a dancer herself, Dr. Pierce’s goal is to encourage students to get curious about how their bodies move to help them build awareness and strength. She believes educating young dancers will help to empower them to advocate for themselves and their bodies, contributing to a stronger and healthier next generation. 🙌

Do I need an MRI? 👉 If you’re asking yourself this question keep reading…

You may need and MRI if you have had back or neck pain radiating into your arms or legs for more than 4 weeks or if the doctors at RFC are referring you to a specialist for injection or surgery.
 
Did you know that 30% of people who are pain-free will have MRIs showing disc herniation or arthritis? A positive MRI for disc herniation is not necessarily an indication of necessary surgery! The doctors at RFC will clinically correlate all your health information, including your health history and perform a thorough exam to help make a shared decision with you about referral for an MRI. 🩻
 
If you have already had and MRI, the doctors at RFC will sit down with you to review the results and help you find the best path forward to address your health care needs.
 
The doctors at RFC will send you for an MRI urgently if:
 👉 You have progressive weakness in your arms or legs due to nerve damage
👉 There is suspected infection
👉 Bowel or bladder control is lost
 
Its most important to have a doctor who can diagnose your condition properly and explain all the relevant details to help make joint decisions. The doctors at RFC will help you navigate issues and help put your mind at ease with the results.

👉 Faster Recovery: Scientific evidence supports the idea that chiropractic treatments can speed up recovery after intense physical exertion, aiding athletes in returning to their training or competitions sooner.

👉 Pain Management: Chiropractic care has shown effectiveness in managing and alleviating various types of sports-related pain, including back pain, neck pain, and joint discomfort.

👉 Improved Range of Motion: Research highlights that chiropractic adjustments may lead to an increased range of motion, crucial for athletes to perform optimally and prevent movement restrictions.

👉 Muscle Strength and Endurance: Some studies suggest that chiropractic care may positively influence muscle strength and endurance, aiding athletes in building and maintaining muscle mass.

What care looks like with prenatal and pediatric chiropractor, Amy Kochersberger // 🙃

The first appointment will be about an hour. Dr, Kochersberger will go over your full health history and perform a physical examination. She’ll answer any questions you have, and discuss recommendations including chiropractic visits, home care, and referrals.

Follow up appointments are based on your (or your child’s) individualized treatment plan, as well as the goals you have for your health and wellness. These appointments usually take 10-15 minutes, and include checking in with how you’re doing, soft tissue work, and adjustments. She’ll make any changes in home care recommendations, and you’ll be back to doing the things you love.

The biggest question we get: does Dr. Kochersberger work with more than just pregnant people and babies? Yes! She works with families in all ages and stages, from fertility/preconception through wisdom years. 🙌

✔️Accepting new patients
✔️Takes insurance
✔️ No referral needed
