The Webster Technique
Having a baby is a tough job, and you deserve all the help you can get. Select-Care Chiropractic, P.C., is here to support you.
Backaches, stress, sudden and sharp pains – all of these and more are common during pregnancy. Chiropractic care can ease these symptoms and make your pregnancy that much more comfortable. But did you know chiropractic care can also assist in the delivery of your baby?
What is the Webster Technique?
Dr. Larry Webster believed all children and pregnant women deserved chiropractic care. Select-Care Chiropractic, P.C., believes the same.
The Webster Technique is named for its creator, Dr. Larry Webster, who was a pediatric chiropractor. It utilizes round ligament massage and pelvic adjustments to give your baby the space to move into the head-down position for delivery.
The Benefits of the Webster Technique
To fully understand the benefits of the Webster Technique, we need a more in-depth understanding of what it corrects in the body. When you’re pregnant, it’s common to experience sacral subluxation. A subluxation is the dislocation of a vertebral joint. A sacral subluxation is specifically when the sacrum, a part of the pelvis, becomes misaligned. Sacral subluxation can cause poor uterine function and pelvic contraction, as well as causing your baby to present breech. All of these contribute to a difficult delivery. The Webster Technique corrects sacral subluxation and thus also helps to remedy these side effects.
While the Webster Technique is primarily designed to make delivery safer and easier, it is also designed to offer expecting mothers relief from the pains and discomforts of pregnancy. The Webster Technique adjusts your spine to help your body cope with the weight of carrying your baby and the resultant posture changes.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnant Women?
The first question on the minds of many expecting mothers is whether or not it’s safe for them and their babies to receive chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is safe for people of all ages and is just as safe as standard medical care. In fact, studies have shown that chiropractic care can even be safer than standard medical care.
