The Webster Technique
ABOUT THE WEBSTER TECHNIQUE
Jeanne Ohm, DC--ICPA Executive Coordinator
Chiropractic care benefits all aspects of your body's ability to be healthy. This is accomplished by working with the nervous system-the communication system between your brain and body. Doctors of Chiropractic work to correct spinal, pelvic, and cranial misalignments (subluxations). When misaligned, these structures create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments. Additionally, the resulting nerve system stress may affect the body's ability to function optimally.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
Sacral and pelvic misalignments cause tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments (see photo). These tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. The Webster Technique is an adjustment to a woman's pelvic region, which reduces the interference to the nervous system and restores balance between the pelvic structures, muscles, and ligaments. This allows the baby to move more freely and achieve the best position for birth!
