Dr. Caroline Long is a pregnancy and pediatric focused chiropractor and the founder of West U Wellness. Born and raised in Houston, she graduated from Spring Woods High School before pursuing her Bachelor of Arts at UCLA. While at Texas Chiropractic College, she learned more about chiropractic care for children. She discovered that chiropractic care could help with scoliosis, ear infections, colic, reflux, latch issues for infants, and more. While still a student, she heard expectant moms complaining of back pain during pregnancy and thought there must be a way to help women with pregnancy aches and pains who wanted a more natural labor. Dr. Long was one of the first chiropractors to be certified in pediatric and perinatal chiropractic in the Houston area.
When she started her clinic, West U Wellness, almost 20 years ago, she wanted to build a practice that offered customized, not cookie cutter, treatments for patients. In addition to chiropractic services, they offer acupuncture, dry-needling, cupping, functional medicine testing, nutritional counseling, decompression, physical therapy modalities, as well as multiple types of massage therapy. In fact, West U Wellness has more pregnancy and pediatric trained chiropractors than any other small business in Texas. Since 2000 she has built her reputation as a caring and compassionate chiropractor for patients as young as 1 day old all the way to a patient who was 106 years old. She and her husband Patrick have two daughters, Katia (14) and Victoria (16).
