What is the Webster Technique?

Dr. Larry Webster developed the Webster Technique in the 1980s after witnessing his daughter’s difficult birth and realizing that chiropractic care may help ease labor and delivery.

The focus of the Webster Technique is the specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the sacrum and pelvis. The specificity of the adjustment focuses on reducing nervous system stress, balancing the bones, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis and optimizing the mother’s pelvic function during pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique is also helpful in relieving lower back pain, sciatic pain and pubic symphysis pain (ie lightening crotch) common during pregnancy.

Can the Webster Technique help make labor easier?

The Webster Technique may ease discomfort during labor. This is because the chiropractic realignment balances the pelvis and reduces ligament tension. Any combination of bone misalignment can contribute to lower back pain and possibly lead to a longer and more uncomfortable labor.

What benefits does The Webster Technique have?

Apart from leading to a more comfortable pregnancy and labor, the Webster Technique can reduce common lower back and sciatic pain, pubic symphysis pain, aid in better sleep, reduce headaches, relieve carpal tunnel symptoms, and more.

Is the Webster Technique safe for pregnant women?

The Webster Technique is comfortable and safe for both mom and baby. In fact, it was created specifically to help during pregnancy. Many OB/GYN’s and Midwives refer their patients to Webster Certified chiropractors to ease pregnancy related symptoms.

When should a pregnant woman start going to the chiropractor?

The earlier in pregnancy the better as our goal is optimal alignment. However, it’s never too late as some of our patients begin coming in their third trimester. It’s important to take care of your body and be proactive in preventing common pregnancy pain and proper pelvic balance.
