Chiropractic Treatment for Pregnancy Pain Relief: Webster Technique
A breech birth, which happens when an infant is delivered feet first, can be a traumatic experience for mother and newborn alike. A breech presentation or an intrauterine constraint, which occurs when there is not enough room for the fetus in the uterus, are among the major reasons why most pregnant women deliver their babies through caesarean section. The Webster technique is offered at Kanawha Valley Family Chiropractic in Charleston, WV to help minimize the risk of breech birth and other complications such as intrauterine constraint.
Webster Technique Relieves Your Pain
A difficult labor, baby mal-presentation, and contraction in the pelvis can all be due to sacral subluxation. When this structural problem is corrected, delivering a baby can be easier and avoids the risk of having a caesarean section.
Before the technique is performed, our chiropractor, Dr. Ganim Howard, will evaluate your sacrum, which is a triangle—shaped bone at the base of the spine, and your spine. Our doctor will then tailor a corrective treatment plan for you. If Dr. Howard determines that this techniques deems fit for you, an adjustment will be performed.
Dr. Howard may also perform massage on the soft tissues surrounding the abdominal wall, reducing your pain. Combing the Webster technique and other chiropractic methods, such as corrective exercises and nutritional counseling, can reduce the chance of labor difficulty as well as provide pain relief during your pregnancy.
It is important to see a chiropractor for help before thirty-four weeks of pregnancy. At this point, if the fetus is not in positioned correctly, it can become a breech birth. Our chiropractor may be able to help after thirty-four weeks, however, for better results, it is best to be seen sooner.
