How Webster technique works
Dr. Tara has adjusted hundreds of expectant moms and has a special interest in prenatal chiropractic. Both doctors are certified in Webster's technique- a specific chiropractic procedure is used to correct subluxations in the pregnant mother’s sacrum and pelvis.
Uterine constraint is caused by the tightening of pelvic muscles and ligaments, and during pregnancy, it is these tense muscles and ligaments (and their constraining effect on the uterus), which prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the vertex (headfirst) position. This condition is called in-uterine constraint, or more commonly known as “breach position”. Chiropractic adjustment relaxes the mother’s muscles and ligaments, promoting normal baby positioning and providing the physiological environment necessary for normal baby positioning.
With both Dr. Tara and Dr. Tessa’s focused training and experience, the gentle chiropractic care offered at Live Well Family Chiropractic corrects spinal misalignments, relieves joint pain, reduces muscle spasm, re-establishes flexibility, enhances nerve system function, as well as decreases time in labour and delivery. And this leads to happier, healthier babies.
