"As defined by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) the Webster Technique is:
"A specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation / SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated."
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic technique that is used to help optimize a pregnant women"s pelvic function. During pregnancy sacral misalignments can cause tightening and torsion of specific pelvis muscles and ligaments. It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus that may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. It's important to note that The Webster Technique is not a "breech turning" technique, but rather an analysis and adjustment of the sacrum, thus minimizing intrauterine constraint.
At Body of Light, we have seen many expectant mothers presenting in the breech, as well as transverse and posterior positions. The Webster Technique has been extremely successful in balancing the mother"s pelvis and assisting the baby in getting into the most optimal position for birth. The Webster Technique is extremely gentle and safe for both mom and baby."
