The Webster Technique in is a specific analysis and adjustment used for pregnant mothers in Tampa. This technique analyzes the pelvis to look for any structural misalignments which may prevent the baby from positioning itself properly for birth. The Webster Technique helps to correct sacral misalignment and to balance pelvic muscles and ligaments. By adjusting the pelvis, this removes torsion to the woman’s uterus and its resulting constraint to the baby, therefore allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
Prevention is best and the most beneficial way to encourage optimal fetal positioning is to begin chiropractic care before you are pregnant. Many pregnant moms begin chiropractic early in their pregnancies. Pregnant mothers with babies in a breech or transverse position a few weeks prior to birth are in need of urgent help.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics has reported an 82% success rate of babies turning head-down (vertex) when chiropractors utilized the Webster Technique with breech presentation. The adjustment does not involve direct, external force on the baby or on the mother’s abdomen and is very comfortable and safe. Regularly scheduled pregnancy chiropractic care can help minimize breech taking place and posterior presentation may be avoided altogether. Chiropractic care during pregnancy promotes optimal baby positioning at the time of birth and decreases the potential for a difficult labor, known as dystocia. This can result in easier and safer births for both mom and baby.
Webster Technique in Tampa
Dr. Oleston is trained and certified in the Webster Technique in Tampa by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). The ICPA recognizes that sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother or dystocia. Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
