Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women

Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Executive Director of International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), shares an explanation of the Webster technique:
"A chiropractic adjustment called the Webster technique is a specific sacral adjustment to help facilitate the mother’s pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus. This may offer a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning. Originally used for breech presentations and then posterior presentations, current research is revealing the benefits of receiving the Webster technique throughout pregnancy for the prevention of dystocia."
