Webster Technique in Rancho Cucamonga

Webster model

During pregnancy, it is quite common for the sacrum (part of the lower spine) to become misaligned with the pelvis (hip). This misalignment, known as a subluxation, can cause problems for both the baby and the mother as they approach the end of the pregnancy.

The Sacral Subluxation

The late Larry Webster, D.C., developed a chiropractic technique to address this issue. He taught this technique to chiropractors worldwide. It helps relieve stress on the pelvis by relaxing the surrounding ligaments and reducing the subluxation in order to restore more normal functioning.

When the sacrum is misaligned, it can cause the pelvic muscles and ligaments to tighten and twist, putting pressure on the uterus. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of the subluxation and improve the function of the sacroiliac joint. This can lead to improved neurological and mechanical functioning in the pelvic region, which benefits pregnant women and others with sacral subluxations.

High Success Rate

According to a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics in July/August 2002, 82% of chiropractors using the Webster Technique reported success in reducing the sacral subluxation.

In some cases, just one adjustment using the Webster Technique can reduce the subluxation of the sacroiliac joint. However, usually, it takes three to 10 visits over a few weeks to see significant improvement.

The Webster Technique is considered safe because it relies on the natural intelligence of both the mother and the baby. It is based on positive experiences of pregnant patients, the expertise of practitioners, and academic studies on the effects of sacral subluxation on proper pelvic function.
