The Webster Technique is most often used in pregnant women to improve pelvic and uterine function and correct the baby's positioning. It is a gentle chiropractic adjustment that aligns the pelvis, sacrum and surrounding ligaments to help improve alignment and reduce tension in the pelvic muscles and ligaments. Webster Technique is also helpful in providing relief for lower back pain and sciatic pain that pregnant women often experience.
The Webster technique is considered safe for most pregnant women and there are numerous benefits as well. It may be helpful throughout pregnancy or simply as an intervention if a baby is breech. Here are some of the benefits:
What we can do is gently and specifically adjust the mother’s spine and pelvis back into a proper balanced state, re-establishing normal physiological function. When it reaches a balanced state, the baby can do what it's designed to do, which is to find the best possible position for itself for birth.
The Webster Technique has been shown to be effective in reducing the chances of a breech baby and reducing the need for interventions during labor. The Webster technique may be worth a try if you have certain concerns about your pregnancy or your baby’s positioning in the uterus. Even if you don’t have concerns, chiropractic care may help you deal with aches and pains as your body and baby grows.
