The Webster Technique – Chiropractic Care for Expecting Mothers
There are many benefits to visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy. Live Well Chiropractic Care specializes in treating expecting mothers through the Webster Technique, which can help a baby be in an optimal position as a mother prepares to give birth. If you are an expecting mom, here’s more about the Webster Technique so you can decide if this type of chiropractic care is right for you:
What is the Webster Technique?
A concept birthed by International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA) founder Larry Webster in the 1970s, the Webster Technique is a holistic chiropractic practice that provides a sacral analysis and adjustment that reduces the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint in expecting mothers. Receiving this treatment can adjust and align a pregnant woman’s spine and pelvis into the proper placement, which can help a baby retain a natural position in the womb leading up to delivery.
How does the Webster Technique help expecting mothers?
Like any chiropractic care, performing the Webster Technique on an expecting mother is both gentle and completely safe. Receiving chiropractic care using the Webster Technique during pregnancy is an effective way to make a patient more comfortable during pregnancy and safer while giving birth, especially for high-risk pregnancies. While the Webster Technique can’t turn a breeched baby, it does relieve tension that can occur in the uterus during pregnancy, which allows for a baby to naturally assume an ideal position.
