Webster Technique for Pregnancy

We are proud to offer the Webster Technique at Compassion Chiropractic, where Dr. Li specializes in this gentle and effective chiropractic technique.

The Webster Technique is a specialized approach primarily focused on the alignment and balance of the pelvis during pregnancy.

How the Blair Upper Cervical Technique Works

The Webster Technique aims to correct pelvic misalignments and optimize pelvic function, specifically during pregnancy. This technique focuses on the sacroiliac (SI) joint, which connects the sacrum to the pelvis.

Through gentle adjustments and specific chiropractic techniques, Dr. Li helps restore proper alignment and balance to the pelvis, reducing tension and promoting optimal pelvic function. By addressing pelvic misalignments and optimizing the pelvic biomechanics, the Webster Technique helps create an environment that is conducive to proper fetal positioning, potentially reducing the risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth.

Symptoms Addressed by the Webster Technique

Low back or pelvic pain: Pelvic misalignments can lead to discomfort and pain in the lower back or pelvic area during pregnancy. The Webster Technique aims to address these imbalances, potentially reducing pain and improving overall comfort.

Malpositioned fetus: Pelvic misalignments can contribute to a breech, transverse, or posterior positioning of the fetus. By promoting optimal pelvic alignment, the Webster Technique aims to create a more favorable environment for the baby to assume the ideal head-down position.

Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD):
SPD is a condition characterized by pain and instability in the pelvic joint. The Webster Technique can help alleviate the symptoms associated with SPD by improving pelvic alignment and reducing stress on the joint.

​​​​​​​Pelvic floor dysfunction:
Pelvic misalignments can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction, leading to issues such as urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. The Webster Technique aims to optimize pelvic alignment, potentially improving pelvic floor function.

Through the Webster Technique, Dr. Li provides specialized care that focuses on supporting the health and well-being of pregnant individuals. By addressing pelvic imbalances and promoting optimal pelvic alignment, this technique aims to create a more comfortable and supportive environment during pregnancy.

A study published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health in 2012 reported a success rate of 92% in achieving optimal fetal positioning when the Webster Technique was employed.

Additionally, the study found that when the technique was applied, the percentage of cesarean section deliveries decreased significantly compared to the general population.
