What is the Webster Technique?

"The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and

diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the

effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-

biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated." 

 

Approximately 4% of all pregnancies result in a

breech presentation. The Webster technique was developed by

the late Dr. Larry Webster, D.C. who was the founder of what is

today known as the International Chiropractic Pediatric

Association (ICPA). Dr. Webster developed the technique that

now bears his name to address what he called

“intrauterine constraint”. By reducing the stresses being applied

to the mother’s uterus, the baby would be given more room to

move into the proper head down position on his own. This

approach has proven to be much less traumatic than

the obstetric approach, known as external cephalic version. The

Webster technique consists of chiropractic evaluation of the

sacrum and it’s alignment within the pelvis. Adjustments are

performed to put the sacrum back into the correct alignment.

Massage and stretching of the attachment points of the uterine

ligaments on the abdominal wall are also performed. This specific

combination of adjustments and soft tissue work serve to

normalize the tension of the uterine ligaments on the uterus

itself and result in the reduction of intrauterine constraint. With

normal tension on the uterus and more room within the fetus

can position itself correctly.
