Dr.Ashley PfaffD.C., CACCP
It's not just ongoing education, but really our experience here at Dr. Ashley Family Chiropractic that allows us to help with such challenging cases.
Dr. Ashley primarily focuses her education and practice on pediatric, pregnancy and family chiropractic care. She is one of the few Doctors of Chiropractic in South Dakota that has earned her certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.). This curriculum is extensive training in pediatric, pregnancy, pre and postnatal care, as well as, craniosacral therapy for infants and children.
'My pediatric certification really sets me apart in my ability to treat highly challenging and difficult pediatric cases.'
Dr. Ashley is also certified in the Webster Technique, which is used as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function during pregnancy. A large percentage of pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy, due to structural changes that occur to pregnant mother's body and to the rapid growth of the baby.
Dr. Ashley has been trained as a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner to address soft tissue influences on fetal position during pregnancy. This protocol allows more comfort in pregnancy, spontaneous change to a more optimal fetal position and progress during labor.
Dr. Ashley is a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University, Bloomington, Minnesota, where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Dr. Ashley is originally from Ipswich, SD where she graduated from high school. She then went on to Presentation College in Aberdeen, SD, where she received her Bachelor of Sciences with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry in December of 2006.
Dr. Ashley is a member of Epic Pediatrics, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the South Dakota Chiropractic Association, and the Sioux Empire Chiropractic Society.
