Learn more about the Webster Technique

Chiropractic care benefits all aspects of your body’s ability to be healthy. This is accomplished by working with the nervous system—the conduit of intelligence between your brain and body. Doctors of Chiropractic work to correct subluxations (misalignments) of the individual spinal bones. When subluxated, these bones put pressure on the spinal cord and the spinal nerves, causing malfunction in any part of the body and imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments.

Sacral subluxation causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments producing uterine constraint. It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus which prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the vertex position. The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system, facilitates balance in the pelvic and abdominal muscles and ligaments, and which in turn reduces constraint to the woman’s uterus, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. In expectant mothers presenting breech, there has been high reported success rate of the baby turning to the normal vertex position. Any position of the baby other than vertex may indicate the presence of sacral subluxation, and therefore result in intrauterine constraint.

It is strongly recommended by instructors of this technique that this specific analysis and adjustment of the sacrum be used throughout pregnancy, to detect imbalance and prevent intrauterine constraint. Because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, allowing for safer, easier deliveries and optimized health benefits for both the mother and baby.
