The Webster Technique is a specific and gentle chiropractic assessment and treatment protocol, effectively used in pregnancy to facilitate pelvic balance and decrease the stress and strain on the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis, including those attached to the uterus.
By correcting any misalignment and reducing the tension of shortened ligaments, it allows greater room for the baby to position itself in the most optimal position for birth.
An initial appointment includes a detailed intake including a comprehensive history and physical exam. Assessment involves the muscles, joints and ligaments, as well as the Webster Technique analysis. Based on the findings of the assessment, a specific treatment plan is designed to tailor to your specific needs.
Webster Technique adjustments are gentle and can be performed at any stage of pregnancy. Dr. Natalie Leib frequently includes soft tissue release for the muscles and ligaments surrounding the pelvis to provide comprehensive treatment.
Webster Technique is beneficial for the treatment of:
- Back, hip, and pelvis pain
- Pubis Symphysis Separation
- Breech presentations
- Water retention
- And more
