Webster Technique – Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy
The Webster Technique was developed by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Basically, the technique involves adjusting one's pelvis to create balance, and this balance is meant to help provide better health in pregnant women. The misalignment of a pregnant woman's pelvis might potentially lead to a more difficult labour, as well as other pregnancy concerns such as low back pain, or other neural issues associated with a misaligned pelvis.
Because it is believed that pelvic misalignment can affect neural function in the uterus, it follows along this line of thinking that providing better neural function will help your baby develop in a more healthy state. In addition, a better aligned pelvis may allow more room for your baby to turn on its own, if it is in a non-optimal position, e.g. breech position.
A chiropractor using this technique must take extra coursework through the ICPA to be fully trained. Yellow Gazebo's own Dr. Jordanna Clarfield-Henry has a fellowship with the ICPA, and has had many years of experience helping women with her special skills.
