Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. This is why both doctors at North Point Chiropractic are certified in the well-known Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis & adjustment that reduces nerve system stress, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.
This technique specifically looks at the moms pelvis and sacrum. Misalignments to these bones can disrupt normal biomechanics of the joints and muscles, as well as put stress on the nerves supplying the uterus. Anatomy involved includes:
- Sacroiliac Joint (SI Joint)
- Piriformis muscles
- Pubic Bone
- Psoas muscle
- Round ligaments
Well-informed birth professionals love to hear that their moms are receiving Webster Technique because it significantly reduces complications and labor time, and allows for a safer, easier birth for mom and baby.
