The Webster Technique

In pregnancy, subluxations in the pelvis cause torsion and tightening of pelvic muscles and ligaments, which can cause intrauterine constraint. This constraint can prevent your baby from adopting the optimal head down position.

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment technique used to detect and treat these pelvic subluxations, with the goal of reducing nervous system interference and restoring normal biomechanical balance to the pelvis and surrounding structures. This technique can be used throughout pregnancy to detect pelvic imbalances and optimize neuro-biomechanics.

Because chiropractic adjustments are an important part of optimizing nervous system function, it is important that pregnant mothers are checked throughout their pregnancy for spinal subluxations, allowing for maximum health benefits to both mother and child. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy has also been shown to reduce labour time, decrease the likelihood of back labour, and lead to a safer and easier delivery for both mother and child.
