Webster Certified Chiropractor
What is a Webster Certified Chiropractor?
The Webster protocol is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
Sure, that was helpful…
Pregnant mothers have a greater chance of sacral subluxations due to hormones, weight gain and postural changes. Webster technique was developed to restore normal physiological function of the mother and improve comfort throughout pregnancy to prepare for a safer and easier birth. This technique utilizes drop table and diversified adjusting to focus on specific pelvic ligaments to optimize pelvic biomechanics and proper function so that baby can develop free of constraint, able to appropriately prepare for labor and delivery.
Chiropractic care affects the entire nervous system and reduces neurological stress, so it is quite appropriate to begin chiropractic care early in your pregnancy and not wait until you are trying to prevent obstetrical interventions in the last trimester. This way, moms are able to enjoy a more active and healthful pregnancy throughout this miraculous time of life.
ICPA Webster technique is different than regular chiropractic care, and certified doctors have taken the extra steps for further education focused on caring for pregnant women. At Active Life Chiropractic, we have an adjusting table that has an abdominal piece that breaks away, allowing you to lay face down comfortably during the adjustment as Webster Technique specifies.
