What is the Webster Technique?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help women feel better in many ways! Webster technique is a technique designed especially for pregnant women. It consists of a chiropractic adjustment to align the pelvis and a soft tissue release of related muscle groups, such as the iliopsoas muscle and the round ligament of the uterus. Webster technique was designed to allow the pelvis to function properly, reduce soft tissue tension that can result in uterine torsion, and provide an ideal environment for baby to grow. Webster Technique is also helpful in reducing low back pain and sciatic pain that is common during pregnancy.

What to Expect?

Dr. Michelle begins by examining the patient while lying face down. Most pregnant patients can lie comfortably on their stomachs with a pregnancy pillow underneath for support. The treatment usually begins by releasing tension in the glute and piriformis muscles. Next, the pelvis is assessed and the chiropractic adjustment is delivered to the appropriate side. At this point the patient will then turn on their side for more soft tissue mobilization to the iliopsoas muscle, as well as the round ligament of the uterus. Lastly, the patient will lie on their back and the pubic symphysis is assessed and adjusted as needed. 

Why is Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Beneficial?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is beneficial in helping the female body prepare for labor and delivery. Webster Technique has been shown to be effective in allowing breech position babies to turn to the normal vertex position. Webster Technique focuses on specific muscles, joints, and ligaments that allow for an easier pregnancy and childbirth.
