Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique has become a familiar term in the pregnancy and birth conversation. Families are seeking out chiropractors who are proficient in this technique as a way to support a more comfortable, safer, and easier birth. The Webster Technique can help make a difference in the pregnancy and birth by optimizing normal physiological function.
What is the Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment to a woman’s pelvic region which reduces the interference to the nervous system and creates balance in the pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. By reducing nervous system interference, improved function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments lead to the reduction of undue tension in the woman’s uterus This may allow the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
The Webster Technique is used when a misaligned pelvis causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. It is these tense muscles and ligaments which may prevent the baby from achieving the best possible position and help ease birth for mom and baby.
