Webster Technique is a specific approach for analysis of the sacrum and ilium. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce any tension and joint dysfunction in the pelvis, facilitating proper neuro-biomechanical function. The sacrum and ilium form a joint called the sacroiliac joint and any subluxation to this joint can contribute to a painful pregnancy and difficult labor.
Difficult labor, also known as dystocia, is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. The uterus is a muscle and it needs nerve supply to function properly. Misalignment of the spine and pelvis interferes with proper nerve supply to the uterus. Misalignment also inhibits for optimal space and positioning of the baby. Correction and proper adjustments made to sacroiliac joint may have positive effects to these causes of dystocia.
Webster is certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
