Webster Technique for Pregnant Women
Due to female adaptations from increases of hormones, weight gain and postural adaptations, pregnant mothers have a greater chance of sacral subluxation and neuro-biomechanical imbalance than the general population. The resulting tensions and their aberrant effect on the uterus may cause pain and/or prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.
The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and treatment method developed to improve a woman’s level of comfort during pregnancy and restore physiological function in preparation for a safer, easier birth. The goal of this technique is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction and in doing so, improve neuro-biomechanical function, balance in the pelvis and facilitate optimal fetal position
The Webster Technique can be very effective late in pregnancy when a woman is experiencing pain, however it is recommended that woman start a course of treatment early in pregnancy to prevent any symptoms that may come along later. This technique is a safe and gentle approach to achieve function and balance in the pregnant mother’s pelvis.
