Webster Technique

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is proven to be very safe for both the mother and baby. It is very gentle, relaxing and effective for balancing all muscles, including the uterus, for the most optimal birthing experience.

What is Webster Technique?

Chiropractic care specific to pregnant people, with a focus on the pelvis and sacrum.

Webster Technique is NOT a "breech turning" technique

The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and SI joint dysfunction.

The importance of regular chiropractic care via the Webster Technique during pregnancy is the potential for safer, easier births as a result of improved neurobiomechanical function being expressed in the pelvis.

Why Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique uses specific methods to balance the round ligament, which connects the uterus to the pelvic bony structure.

If the pelvis is out of alignment, it can pull on the round ligament creating an unbalanced and tightened uterus leading to a malpositioned baby. 
It is proposed that sacral misalignment may cause the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. 
It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus which may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.
Pregnancy can bring on a fairly common abdominal pain caused by the stretching of the round ligament. This is the ligament that holds your uterus in suspension within your abdomen. 

As your pregnancy advances and your uterus grows in size and weight, this ligament becomes long and thin, stretching and tensing like a rubber band. 

When the ligaments become stretched they can pull on nerve fibers and cause a great deal of pain. The pain can be brought on by something as simple as rolling over in your sleep, exercise, or simply walking.
