While our first goal is to relieve pain, the larger goal is to restore good health. Good health cannot be attributed solely to medication, surgery, or chiropractic adjustments. Good health comes from a healthy lifestyle and proper spinal function.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and correction of the pelvic and sacral regions. 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.
Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification.
Dr Carofilis has been certified and been practicing The Webster technique since 2015 with incredibly positive results. Many patients will have uncomplicated fast deliveries and in our office and we have had numerous breech presentations resolve so the mother could deliver naturally including one case with twins. Although The Webster technique is not a treatment for breech presentation, there have been many studies showing that when the pelvis is put into a more balanced position the baby will move to a healthier position to deliver.
