Webster’s Technique and Prenatal Care in Denver
What’s in it for mom?
- Improves nervous system function
- Balances pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments
- In normalizing maternal physiology, it allows for a better pregnancy and birth
- “Side effects” may include less low back pain, better movement, more comfort” may include
The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis & adjustment that reduces nerve system stress, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.
Williams Obstetric tells us there are three components for a smoother birth for both mother and baby:
The nervous system (power) operates in all body processes, including childbirth. For birth to proceed as it was naturally designed to, the nervous system must facilitate the transmission of the information through the body. By removing interferences and imbalances to the nervous system chiropractic care helps lead to a normal, physiological birth.
For the baby to descend through the birth canal (passenger), the balance of the mother’s pelvis is vitally important. With chiropractic care, the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis and uterus are free to move and function for the benefit to the mother and the baby. The result is greater ease and comfort in pregnancy and birth.
The baby (Passenger) wants to get in the best possible position to descend through the birth canal. The movements inherent to the birthing baby may be positively facilitated when the mother’s nervous system is optimally functioning and her pelvis balanced. Birth is a cooperative endeavor, where the mom and baby play vitally connected roles.

For medical providers assisting with the birthing process:
“The theoretical and clinical framework of chiropractic in the care of pregnant women is the sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e. dystocia). According to William’s Obstetrics, dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function (Power), pelvic contraction (Passage) and baby map-presentation (Passenger). The correction of the sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
In this clinical and theoretical framework, it is proposed that sacral misalignment may contribute to these three primary causes of dystocia via uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. 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.
