The Webster Chiropractic Technique is a specialized form of pregnancy-focused care that is designed to specifically address pelvic dysfunction. It seeks to correct pelvic torsion through specific and gentle adjustments to the sacral area in the second lowest spinal region. By doing so, postural issues, as well as spinal misalignments that can affect not only uterine constraint, but also be a causative factor in a number of reproductive and digestive ailments. These may often be corrected with the Webster Technique. It is most often practiced to benefit women during both pre and post-natal periods of pregnancy, to improve function, relieve pain that develops as the baby grows (placing increased pressure and constraint on the low back and pelvic regions) and give mom-to-be the best opportunity to deliver her baby as naturally and comfortably as possible.
About the Webster Chiropractic TechniqueFounded by Dr. Larry Webster, the Webster Chiropractic Technique was first developed to treat women suffering from breech pregnancies—those where the fetus is oriented feet-first rather than head-first as normal. Dr. Webster believed that adjusting the sacral and pelvic regions could help to realign the fetus.
In many cases, the method is used to relieve pressure and stress on the sacrum which cause subluxations. When people experience such misalignments, their energy, mobility and overall health can be negatively affected. Use of the Webster method can restore optimal biomechanics, proper function and reduce the pain and discomfort of these problems.
How the Webster Method WorksThe Webster method recognizes that abnormalities in pelvic positioning or spinal misalignments in the lower back can often result from misalignments of the tail end of the spine, including the coccyx. By using gentle pressure and adjustments, these subluxations can be corrected, mobility restored and natural functioning resumed.
