Webster Technique for Pregnant Women in Highlands Ranch CO

Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

We see many pregnant women in our Chiropractic clinic for various reasons. Some just like to stay in-tune with their body while others are experiencing low back pain from the growing fetus. Chiropractic adjustments are great during your pregnancy as they will help keep your hips aligned, decrease the chances of having a breeched baby, as well as getting rid of hip pain and sciatica as your belly starts to grow.

One chiropractic technique we utilize for our expecting mothers is called the Webster technique. This very specific chiropractic technique helps to give the fetus ample room by keeping the hip and pelvic joints opened up and aligned. By analyzing the way the mother’s sacrum rotates during pregnancy we can tell which side your “round ligament” has either stretched or contracted. Your round ligament actually holds the uterus in suspension. By applying pressure to the ligament and giving the sacrum a chiropractic adjustment, we will be freeing up room in the pelvic cavity and allowing the fetus more room. This can be very beneficial when you’re close to labor because it gives the fetus room to descend downward. We have even had cases where a breeched baby will turn after a Webster technique adjustment. Otherwise the mother would probably have to have a C-section.

During your nine months, you may experience slight or extensive lower back pain due to pinching of the lower back nerves. If they get extreme pressure or pinching on them, you may even get sciatica. Don’t worry; chiropractic can help tremendously to ease the pain. We can also show you some very specific pregnancy stretches and exercises to help get you through this time. The Webster technique for expecting moms will help restore normal physiological function and ensure a safe & healthy pregnancy and labor. If you have questions related to chiropractic and pregnancy, do not hesitate to ask.
