Webster Technique

The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that helps facilitate the mother’s pelvic alignment and nervous system function by reducing the effects of sacral subluxation. Creating balance within the pelvic muscles and ligaments, as well as reducing torsion to the uterus allows for a more comfortable pregnancy and better birth outcome.

Chiropractic for pregnant women before, during, and after pregnancy is essential to the normal physiological function of mom and baby. New stresses are placed on mom’s body as it adapts to the needs of the growing baby. Proper nervous system and spinal function creates balance within the pelvis and an optimal environment for a healthy pregnancy. Gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments throughout pregnancy help support your body during this process, creating an optimal environment for a healthy, more comfortable pregnancy.
