Chiropractor recommendation?

I’m looking for a chiropractor to help with general back/hip pain and core instability after two hard pregnancies. I would prefer someone who is more mainstream than alternative in the “feel” of their practice, but who also approaches their work with a holistic view of what’s going on. I’m located in North Berkeley. Any recommendations welcome!

I've been going to Awaken Chiro in Oakland for years and absolutely love it; highly recommend!  I see Armene regularly and have also seen Kenda -- both are experienced, effective, warm, and just all around lovely people.  The office is lovely and inviting and you can bring your children with you.  Good luck with your search!

Not a chiropractor, but Beth Baron of InTouch Therapies (https://bethbaron.com/intouchtherapies/) does bodywork using a variety of techniques and approaches. I've seen her for myofascial release, but her website also lists alignment and restorative exercise and somatic experiencing. She's really good.

Awaken Chiropractic, on Grand Ave.

I suggest giving them a try; they may feel too alternative, but they don’t do anything unusual, other than being gentle. And they are very good, and very experienced with prenatal and postpartum bodies.

Linda Mayo, on Solano, is wonderful.  Her practice runs on time and appears pretty straightforward.  However, the depth and breadth of her knowledge and experience is impressive and she truly understands that she is working with multi-faceted systems and individuals.  Her care incorporates, with great respect, many healing modalities.  I think she might be just what you are looking for.

Michelle at Hendrickson Clinic. Located in Kensington on Colusa Circle. Every single person that I’ve recommended her to loves the experience. It’s a 15 minute appointment with massage and adjustment. She is the only person I’ve seen where I don’t cringe and get frightened and even more tense. She has a reassuring personality and intuitive nature. I tell her where the pain is, then she massages a totally different place and immediately there is relief.

I went to Dr. Bartlett near Alta Bates in Oakland. He works with prenatal and postnatal care and helped me with sciatica and hip issues.
