Webster Technique - Pregnancy Chiropractors

Webster Technique Chiropractor Brisbane

Chiropractic and Webster Technique during Pregnancy

Why of pregnant mothers receive out chiropractic care?

Patients of Geebung Family Chiropractic often seek advice from us about management of back pain, sciatica and other musculoskeletal issues which can arise as a result of the changes during pregnancy. We also see pregnant mums seeking the Webster Technique which is a method of gently balancing the ligaments, muscles and other tissues around the pelvis to support a relaxed and optimally functioning lumbar and pelvic region in the later stages of pregnancy. 

What is the Webster Technique for pregnancy?

Webster Technique has previously been wrongly described as a technique to ‘turn your baby from breech position’. This is understandable given that is sometimes a follow on effect from releasing tension in the pelvic tissues, however techniques performed by Chiropractors including the Webster Technique are solely focussed on improving function of the spine, nervous system and musculoskeletal system. When there is improved function, the body can more easily do what it needs and the results that follow are dependant on each individual person and their condition. Chiropractic focusses to maintain the structural alignment and balance of the pelvis, spine and surrounding structures to support the mother's comfort.  

Specifically, the Webster Technique is a series of gentle adjustments and ligament releases performed in a specific sequence with the intention of unwinding an identified  rotation or twist of the sacrum and pelvis. The Chiropractors at Geebung Family Chiropractic are all trained and experienced in pregnancy care and take a wholistic approach to caring for pregnant mothers. We know how important this time is for you and your family and want to be able to support you with the best chiropractic care we can.

Is it ok to see the chiropractor when I'm pregnant?

Most pregnant women look forward to being able to rest on their bellies with the support of a pregnancy pillow that has a scoop cut out of it and can continually be adjusted as mom grows to make room for the baby and provide the most comfortable position for mums to rest and receive care. Our focus is always to make your needs and preferences a priority so if you are uncomfortable laying down, that is ok, we are able to treat you sitting or standing if necessary..

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is considered gentle safe for both mum and baby, and can be an important part of prenatal care.  Pregnancy is a time of incredible physical and postural change as the mother's body accommodates and nurtures the growing baby.
