What is Webster Technique and what is it used for?
Webster Technique is a gentle protocol that allows the pelvis and hips to become better aligned throughout a series of treatments. It is most commonly used on pregnant women because it is a safe and effective way of relieving lower back, gluteus, hip and pelvic pain.
Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association, discovered this specific chiropractic sacral adjustment as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function.
It is proposed that sacral misalignment may contribute to difficult labour. The resulting tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.
Webster technique can be used on all weight bearing individuals presenting with this bio-mechanical restriction. Common symptoms include (but are not limited to) low back pain, hip pain, gluteal pain, sciatic neuralgia, and symptoms associated with S/I joint dysfunction.
Webster can be used for both pregnant and non-pregnant patients.
Dr. Andrea DesGroseilliers (DC) is trained in Webster technique.
