Webster Technique for Easier Pregnancies AND Easier Periods

Thousands of people have benefitted from easier pregnancies, more effortless childbirth, as well as less painful periods by receiving specialized chiropractic care with Webster Technique. A common misconception about Webster Technique is that it “aims to flip breech babies”, but this is not accurate. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and gentle adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, balances the pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments, and optimizes the patient’s pelvic function. 

For a pregnant patient, this means that when we address the environment housing the baby, can move on its own into an optimal position as a result. When the mother’s pelvis is out of alignment, the ligaments connecting the uterus and pelvis increase in tension, resulting in distortions to the baby’s environment. For the baby, the surrounding walls of the uterus tighten from the pelvic imbalance, becoming like tight sheets restricting movement. When the gentle chiropractic adjustment is delivered, followed by muscle and ligament soft tissue release, this releases and unwinds tension in the uterus, allowing the baby to move more freely and get into the best possible position throughout pregnancy. 

Patients who are not pregnant also benefit from Webster Technique because it restores proper function and alignment of the pelvis and sacrum. Menstrual cramps are often due to contractions of the uterine ligaments and are affected by the alignment of the pelvis and sacrum. Because the Webster technique addresses the uterine ligaments and surrounding muscles, patients with menstrual discomfort and difficult periods can also benefit greatly.
