Balance Chiropractic Wellness Centre
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system and balance maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments. This in turn reduces torsion in the uterus , a cause of intra-uterine constraint of the baby and allows for optimal fetal positioning in preparation for birth. This pelvic balancing should take place throughout pregnancy to help create the best possible environment for the developing fetus.
The Webster Technique is not a breech turning method, rather it is a technique that helps eliminate 3 of the 4 main reasons and causes of dystocia (difficulty in labor) as cited by Williams Obstetrics. The following are three reasons for dystocia (which is the cause of 50 - 60% of c-sections) are abnormalities of the uterine contractions, abnormalities of the bony pelvis, abnormalities of presentation, position, or development of the fetus. These can all be greatly reduced if not eliminated with chiropractic care
