What is the Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment for pregnant women. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is becoming more popular as women are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care during pregnancy and childbirth. It is vital to the physiological function for both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique assists in making this process a smoother transition.

Is the Webster Technique safe?

It is extremely, gentle safe and effective.

Is the Webster Technique able to re-position babies in the womb?

The Webster Technique is not a baby-turning technique. There is no direct external forces used on the baby.

What are the benefits of the Webster Technique during pregnancy?

Sacral subluxations may contribute to difficult labor for the mother known as dystocia. This can be caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction or baby mal-presentation. By correcting all of these areas throughout pregnancy, it can have a positive effect on the causes of dystocia. According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (2002), an 82% success rate is seen by Webster Technique Certified Chiropractors who work with mothers with babies presenting breech or transverse. Another added benefit of utilizing this technique during pregnancy is a greater chance of your child being in proper position for childbirth.
