Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
This specific adjustment as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function. This specific sacral analysis can be used on all weight bearing individuals to determine sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction/ sacral subluxation and is therefore applicable for the entire population.
The Webster Technique balances the pelvis/sacrum while also reducing the stress to the utero-sacral and round ligaments. There are ligaments in the body which help to support the baby in utero. The round ligaments support the uterus within the abdomen. As pregnancy progresses, the round ligaments can become thin and tight which can cause pain and restrict the space the baby has to move within the womb.
When pelvic and sacral imbalances are corrected, the baby is typically able to choose an optimal position for birth. Evidence has shown that women under prenatal chiropractic care report easier births, shorter labor times, and lower rates of interventions.
Doctors of Chiropractic do not turn breech babies. Webster Certified Doctors are trained to adjust the spine and pelvis to correct misalignments of the pelvis and scrum. Imbalance of these bones may cause uneven pulling of the attached pelvic muscles and ligaments. The Webster analysis and adjustment facilitates a state of pelvic balance, decreasing torsion to the uterus, offering greater room. This gives the baby the opportunity to get into the best possible position for birth.
