At Revival Chiropractic, all of our doctors are certified in this technique and ready to help you move towards optimal health and comfort for both you and your baby.
What Is The Webster Technique?
The technique was developed by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This technique specifically focuses on aligning the pelvis and relaxing the surrounding muscles and ligaments during pregnancy. This is a specialized technique that focuses on the nuances of a pregnant woman’s body. Whereas many people seek chiropractic care to alleviate pain, this treatment path supports overall wellness and is generally recommended for pregnancy whether or not mom is currently feeling discomfort.

Why Choose Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
A quicker more comfortable labor and better positioning for delivery are just a few of the reasons why women turn to chiropractic care during pregnancy. Treatment is also supportive for those wishing to have a drug-free vaginal birth with as few interventions as possible. Regular chiropractic adjustments can also address common complaints such as headaches, back and leg pain. The Webster Technique centers on a full analysis of pregnant momma’s spine and pelvis to located spinal misalignments and provide gentle and safe adjustments to the pelvis which restores alignment and causes the muscles surrounding the uterus to relax. As a result, a baby can find more room to get into the best position possible and mom can find greater comfort. Feeling good during pregnancy can help mom keep up her normal routine, exercise regimen and regular range of motion. All of these factors contribute to a greater chance of a birth with fewer (or no!) medical interventions. Pregnant women around the world who are looking to give themselves the best possible chances of reducing discomfort before and during labor without drugs or surgery turn to the Webster Technique. This mode of care is appropriate for pregnant women no matter what type of birth plan you have in mind and will be useful in any setting — home birth, birth center or hospital.
What Should You Expect?
Your appointments with your doctor will be something you’ll look forward to. It is our goal that each appointment brings physical comfort and an emotional sense of ease. Before your adjustment begins, your doctor will always discuss with you any updates to your overall health, pregnancy, and any new sensations or symptoms. After the initial assessment and one-on-one discussion, you can expect our doctors to complete your adjustment using a specially modified table to allow space for your growing belly and other pillows or supports for your comfort. Your appointment is customized for exactly what your body needs in the moment, and for what baby needs to be well positioned for birth.
Above all, treatment with the Webster Technique is gentle and safe.
When Should I Start Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
No matter what point you’re at in your pregnancy, it is not too late to begin treatment. However, it’s ideal to begin care as soon as possible. We have found that when women start care earlier in their pregnancy, we’re able to make bigger corrections to the spine and surrounding muscles. Plus, by starting care earlier, we can help you enjoy your entire pregnancy. Many women join our practice as soon as they find out that they’re pregnant and this allows us to make the most change possible during the 9 months of pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help you sleep better, handle stress better and provide a healthy start for you and your baby.
Unfortunately, we find that many women have never heard about the Webster Technique until later in their pregnancies. Although we prefer to see moms as early as possible, we know that many women have never heard about what we do until they are father along. We can still make a big difference for you, even if you’re already 36 weeks! It is essential to get started as soon as possible to make as many corrections as possible before you deliver. So if you or someone you know is pregnant, call our office as soon as possible so that we can get to work on helping you enjoy your pregnancy and preparing your body for birth.
If you’re aware that your baby is in breech position, please contact us to be seen as soon as possible. Webster Technique can help align the pelvis and correct misalignments that may prevent baby from getting into a head down position. If you know that your baby is in the breech position, it’s essential to start chiropractic care as soon as you find out. Please let our team know when you call to make your appointment if your baby is breech so that we can do our best to fit you in as early as possible. Often, depending on how many weeks pregnant you are, we may also invite your partner or support system to the office to show you stretches that you can do to assist with your adjustments if your baby is breech.
Chiropractic care can also be supportive during the preconception phase. Because chiropractic care improves the function of the nervous system, which is linked to the reproductive system, benefits to care can include a return to regular menstrual cycles and a better functioning uterine system.
Ultimately, making the time for chiropractic care during pregnancy is a gift you can give not just to yourself, but that will benefit your newest family member as well.
If you have any doubts at all, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with our office or to discuss your care plan with your midwife or obstetrician. Chiropractic care using the Webster Technique is well established and known to safely deliver consistent positive results for pregnant women.
Our Webster Technique certified doctors are ready and willing to support you on your journey to as quick and comfortable a birth as possible.
