An Introduction to the Webster Technique
There are many thoughts that go through your mind as an expectant mother. Is my baby healthy? Will I have a boy or a girl? What date will my baby be born on? You may have never thought about the chiropractic care to make the pregnancy easier. At Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center in Lancaster, PA, we offer chiropractic care, including the Webster technique that could help with the ease of your delivery. Learn more about the Webster technique below.
Your Body During Pregnancy
Pregnancy can be a trying time and your body can go through trauma. When the body takes on stress, the bones can shift and create pressure in different areas of the body. Your body also releases different hormones to help the muscles and ligaments stretch. The pelvis can misalign and not allow the baby to move freely. Increased pressure on the body affects your posture, back, and bone health. Our chiropractor, who is trained to use Webster Technique, can help with all these issues.
The Webster Technique Explained
The technique is used to reduce nervous system stress in a pregnant mother. Imbalance can restrict movement from the pelvis and create tightness in the muscles and ligaments. Stress and tension can be caused in the uterus and put more stress and pressure on the baby. The Webster technique can help balance pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments, to allow for optimal function during pregnancy and birth.
What to Expect from the Webster Technique
The professionals at Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center are able to perform the Webster technique. It is a safe and gentle adjustment without any pressure applied to the baby. It's normal after the adjustment to have a symmetric belly. Also, you may feel more kicks and movement from the baby since he or she has extra space to move around.
Additional Benefits of the Webster Technique
Aside from more space for the baby, the Webster Technique has other pregnancy benefits. They include:
- • Lower back and hip pain relief
- • Decreased muscle tension
- • Heartburn Relief
- • Easier birth process
