Webster technique encompasses a safe, specific analysis and sacral adjustment designed for pregnant women. This technique promotes proper alignment of the pelvis, which simultaneously restores appropriate balance in the pelvic muscles and ligaments. These structure are surrounding the uterus, therefore a specific spinal correction can facilitate better function of the reproductive system. Many expecting moms experience:

  • Muscle Aches
  •  Cramping
  • Headaches
  • Swelling
  • Overall Discomfort
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Low Back Pain
  •  Sciatica
  • Shortness of Breath
  •  Frequent Urination
  •  Nausea
  • Vomiting 

 

Chiropractic care can aid alleviate some of these symptoms! Maintaining a well-adjusted and aligned pelvis can also decrease the amount of time the mother spends in labor. The body goes through major hormonal changes during pregnancy causing ligaments to relax leading to overall anatomy and postural alterations.  We are here to help make this nine month journey as comfortable and stress-free as we possibly can for all future mommies!
