Dr. Parker Watkins is certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is most popular, but not limited to, pregnant women. The Webster Technique focuses on a person's sacrum and eliminating subluxations in that area.
How does Webster Technique work?
At Abide Chiropractic, we begin by carefully examining the resting posture of the patient along with any restricted movement.
Any abnormalities in the position of the pelvic region or lower back can be commonly attributed to subluxations in the sacrum. By restoring proper positioning through gentle adjustments, optimal health can be restored to improve mobility as well as neural functioning and potentially reduce pain.
Many recipients of the Webster technique are women past the first trimester of their pregnancy. As the baby increases in size, the placenta and uterus can place torsional stress upon the sacrum, causing subluxations. This effect can greatly reduce the energy, health and mobility of the mother while causing pain.
Webster Technique adjustments allows the pelvis to open more and the baby to grow healthy in optimal position. This allows the future mom to be more comfortable during pregnancy and it reduces labor pains and delivery times up to 60%.
Webster technique with breech position
Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the Webster technique, originally developed his method in order to treat pregnancies presenting a breech position, where the baby was oriented feet-first towards the birth canal rather than head first as it should have been. His belief was that pelvic and sacral adjustments could help properly realign the fetus out of breech position.
We recommend that any pregnant mothers who wish to receive Webster method adjustments, especially to correct breech position, should do so within a complete care plan that includes regular visits to your doctor in order to monitor both the health of the baby and yourself.
