Dystocia is dependent upon the three P’s; Power (Deficient uterine function), Pelvis (pelvic narrowing), and Passenger (mal-presentation of the fetus), which can all lead to a difficult labor. The Webster Technique addresses each of these potential causes by balancing the pelvis and alleviating any sacral misalignment.
Uterine nerve interference, caused by sacral misalignment, can be alleviated simply and gently with chiropractic care, by removing the subluxation by opening the pathways between the nervous system and the uterus prior to and during labor. Tightening and torsion of pelvic muscles and ligaments can cause pelvic misalignment, which in turn can affect the fetus’ ability to shift into a desirable position for decent through the pelvic canal. Regular chiropractic visits can alleviate these symptoms as well as maintain a properly functioning reproductive system.
Chiropractors with the 180-hour post-graduate certification are licensed by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to practice the Webster Technique. Both Dr. James and Dr. Tira have received this certification and are proficient in performing the Webster Technique. They see many young families and expectant mothers seeking gentle chiropractic care in La Mesa and the greater San Diego area.
