Dr. Karl Roberts D.C
Undergraduate School: Montclair State University
Chiropractic: Life University
Dr. Roberts graduated from Montclair State University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology and graduated with honors from Life University with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree.
As a Chiropractor specializing in prenatal care, Dr. Roberts works closely together with obstetricians/gynecologists Dr. Caterina Violi, and Dr. Patricia Palos.
The collaboration of chiropractic and medical care provides the OB/GYN patient with the unique advantage in achieving their healthcare needs. Dr. Roberts has completed post doctorate studies in prenatal care certification (Webster's Technique) to ensure the highest level of care for his patients.
During pregnancy, mothers have a greater chance of sacral misalignment and neuro-biomechanical imbalance than the general population, which is due to the increase of hormones, weight gain and postural adaptations. It is, therefore considered prudent that a specific chiropractic technique (Webster's) be used, throughout pregnancy, to detect and alleviate sacral imbalance and optimize pelvic neuro-biomechanics in the mother.
Additionally, because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions in reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers may attain significant benefit by having their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy. This in turn optimizes health benefits for both the mother and baby.
Although Dr. Roberts is considered by many in the community as a pregnancy and family care specialist, his practice also specializes in providing total body wellness, which includes extremity adjustments on all types of patients, including athletes with sports related injuries, as well as personalized nutritional consults.
In addition to Webster's Certified Technique, Dr. Roberts has extensive experience in a variety of chiropractic techniques including Performance for Life Method, Diversified, Thompson Drop Table, Chiropractic Biophysics, Activator Methods, Impulse Adjusting, Kineseo Taping, Extremity Adjusting. Active Release Technique, Myofascial Trigger Point Release and Physiotherapy.
