Webster Technique

The Webster Technique was discovered by Dr. Larry Webster.  He is the founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).  

The Webster Technique is a pelvic adjustment for pregnant women that balance ligaments and pelvic muscles. Webster technique also involves analysis and light adjustment to a supporting pelvic ligament. It also helps improve birth.

To improve common pelvic functioning during pregnancy, the Webster Technique is highly recommended. Treatment should begin in the first few months of pregnancy and continue no later than the 7th or 8th month. The Webster technique should be the first choice for mothers who are expecting.

If the tension in the uterus is absent, the baby has more room for movement.  Mothers who get the Webster Technique will be free of pelvic subluxation dislocation.  The nerve function may considerably improve and the birth canal can be maximized. 

The round ligaments are the ones that hold the uterus.  As the stomach becomes bigger, these ligaments become tight like a rubber band limiting the space in which the baby moves within the womb.  This causes sharp, intense pain in the pregnant women. The Webster Technique allows the baby to move comfortably to get into proper position within the womb.

 

Should I Really Have Chiropractic Treatment During My Pregnancy?

When a woman is pregnant, there are a lot of changes that occur in her body in preparation for giving birth.  Changes in her body like the following can result in misaligned joints:

- Extending abdomen and abnormal back curve

- Misaligned pelvic

When there is a problem with the alignment of the pelvis, it will make it difficult for the baby to get into the best position for delivery.

Dr. Webster who established these chiropractic analysis and adjustments enable the chiropractors to ascertain pelvic balance and lessen stress to uterus and ligaments.
