Vertebral Subluxations where the sacrum joins the pelvis (hip) may prevent the baby from assuming the best possible position for birth.
When the baby feels it's time to be born it innately knows that head first is the correct position. If the baby isn't turning we know that birthing complications are much more likely. What can we do? Why is this happening?
Why is this happening?
Babies often times cannot naturally turn because there just isn't enough room, aka uterine constraint. When the uterine ligaments are tight and there is stress on the pelvic muscles, and often this whole cascade is the effect of sacral vertebral subluxation. Chiropractors are the best and only profession in the world who address this sacral subluxation. Larry Webster DC is the chiropractor who developed this effective technique.
Our result, neurobiomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved, benefiting not only pregnant mothers but anyone with a sacral vertebral subluxation.
An Effective Approach
The July/August 2002 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reports that 82% of chiropractors using the Webster Technique reported success.
Sometimes, when using the Webster Technique the associated dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint can be reduced with just one adjustment. But usually it takes between three to 10 visits over a several week period.
Because the Webster Technique relies on the inborn intelligence of the mother and baby, there is little risk. The Webster Technique is based on the positive experiences of pregnant patients, the clinical experience of its many practitioners, academic studies on the subject of sacral vertebral subluxation and its consequences to proper pelvic function. Res assured, you're in good hands.
