Dr. Larry Webster is the founder of the Webster technique, which he originally developed to treat pregnancies presenting a breech position. A breech position is where the baby is oriented feet-first towards the birth canal, rather than head first as it should be. Dr. Webster believed that the pelvic and sacral adjustments could help properly realign the fetus out of breech position. We recommend that any pregnant mothers who wish to receive Webster adjustments, especially to support a successful birth, should do so within a complete care plan that includes regular visits to monitor both the health of the baby and mom.
Understanding the Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique that realigns the pelvis and sacrum. With regular adjustments during pregnancy, moms may experience an easier labor and faster birthing process. As part of our mission at Radical Chiropractic, we are dedicated to providing the best care possible. This is why Dr. Taylor Suval uses the Webster Technique. It is safe, gentle, effective, and improves the health and well-being of mom and baby.
How the Webster Technique Works
This special technique creates space for the baby in the uterus. The baby can then take on the proper position, which provides optimal comfort for the mom and a less complicated birth. The Webster Technique does not apply any force directly to the baby. Instead, this technique works to reduce tension and stress in the uterus by alleviating lower spine and pelvis misalignments. When your spine is restored back into proper alignment, your body can then communicate properly with the brain and vice versa. This results in better overall health and functioning.
How Quickly Does It Work?
The Webster Technique can lead to a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy. Since every pregnant mom is different, the time frame of how quickly it will work depends on when they started receiving adjustments and their level of pain or discomfort. Dr. Taylor Suval recommends pregnant women to receive regular adjustments during and after pregnancy. Indeed, chiropractic care can help you recover and heal faster following birth.
