Webster technique is a form of chiropractic care founded by Dr. Larry Webster, who is also the founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This technique allows a safe adjustment to return the pelvis to its proper balance and function. Developed to aid in the comfort of mothers throughout pregnancy and prepare for a safer and easier birth experience. It was reported by Dr. Webster, that results of adjustment normalized the “pelvic neuro-biomechanics” and aided in fetal positioning.
Many obstetric sources have shown the positioning of the baby in-utero affects the development of the baby’s nervous system and spine. It has also shown the importance of pelvic neuro-biomechanics for difficult births. Literature about Chiropractic care has determined the significance of pelvic neuro-biomechanics. Sacral analysis and adjustment should be used to alleviate sacral imbalance and the tightening and torsion of pelvic muscles and ligaments. Pregnant mothers have a higher chance of experiencing sacral subluxation due to the change of hormones, weight, and adaptations during pregnancy.
Our goal at our office is to help our patients have a more enjoyable pregnancy, experience less pain and discomfort, and have the optimal positioning for the baby during birth.
“Dr. Ashtiana is wonderful! I saw her for prenatal chiropractic care and it really helps avoid unnecessary back pain in the final weeks leading into birth. Still waiting for our little one to make his arrival but her suggestions and care have been log wonderful addition to our birth preparations!” -Jenna M.
“Love working with her throughout my pregnancy! She takes her time with me and I know it has made a difference in how I have felt so far. I drive from the Alamo Ranch area to see her. It’s 100% worth it.” -Lori L.
