The Webster Technique was designed to help remove subluxations in pregnant women and restore balance to the pelvic area through adjustments and relaxation of special ligaments in the pelvic girdle. This helps to relieve the pressure and stress that can be placed on the pelvic area during pregnancy & childbirth and it also helps with optimal fetal positioning.
Chiropractic care for expecting mothers includes adjustments designed to maintain proper pelvic balance & alignment and to cut down on complications to help ensure a smooth delivery. Pain relief results from removing friction points, normalizing nerve function and body structural alignment.
