The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction, as well as work with the soft tissues of the low back and pelvis. In doing so, the neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. This helps to establish more room in the uterus for baby to develop and move into an optimal position.
Why is this important for expecting mothers? Because of the particular female adaptations from the increase 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 chiropractic adjustment has beneficial effects on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress. Pregnant mothers may see significant improvement in symptoms by having their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, as well as optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
This certification is not part of the requirements for a typical doctor of chiropractic degree, so our doctors took additional classes and training to become proficient in the art of adjusting prenatal patients.
