Chiropractic care during pregnancy | The Webster Technique
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of the mother and child. More women and birth providers are discovering the benefits associated with such care. And they recognize this expertise through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Webster Certification.
What is the Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment using gentle manipulation of the pelvis and sacrum. The goal of this technique is to reduce the effects of pelvic imbalance.
Dr. Tara Flor is the only chiropractor in South Burlington, VT certified in the Webster Technique.
Why is pelvic imbalance bad?
Throughout pregnancy, this can affect both the mother's comfort and the baby's positioning. During labor and birth, pelvic imbalance can affect labor progression, leading to unnecessary intervention. Pelvic imbalance adversely affects uterine nerve function and may hinder a baby's ability to gain optimal positioning. The Webster Technique helps achieve a state of balance in the pelvis that may contribute to a safer, easier birth outcome.
