“The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation (misalignment of the tailbone)/ sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.”-Described by Jeanne Ohm, D.C. & Joel Alcantara, D.C and Developed by Larry Webster DC.
Sacral subluxations (aka misalignment of the tailbone) may contribute to low back pain and complications while giving labor (etc.dystocia). Chiropractic helps to realign the pelvis to make room for the baby to move around more freely and to help potentially decrease complications that may otherwise interfere during labor.
