During pregnancy, misalignments are common where the sacrum joins the pelvis. Besides potentially interfering with the baby assuming the head-down position (resulting in a breech presentation), it can produce a variety of symptoms in mothers preparing for the culmination of their pregnancy.
Developed by the late Larry Webster, D.C., the Webster Technique helps release stress on the pelvis, relaxing surrounding ligaments and reducing the sacral misalignment, or subluxation, to help restore normal function.
Sacral misalignments may cause the tightening and twisting of pelvic muscles and ligaments, constraining the uterus. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of misalignment and the associated dysfunction of the joint. The result is improved function in the sacral/pelvic region, allowing baby to assume an optimal position for delivery.
