THE WEBSTER TECHNIQUE

For specific chiropractic care during pregnancy , the Webster Technique is a specific light force chiropractic adjustment of the sacrum developed by Dr. Larry Webster in 1978. The method involves analysis of the relationship of the bony articulations and muscles of the pelvis and the structural correction is performed to relieve the musculoskeletal dysfunction related to intrauterine constraint. Intrauterine constraint has been described as any forces external to the developing fetus that obstructs the normal movement of the fetus.

The Webster Technique is intended to relieve a specific musculoskeletal condition, and is well within the chiropractor's scope of practice. The Webster Technique is not to be misconstrued as the practice of obstetrics and the chiropractor does NOT attempt to change the position of the fetus.

Dr. Hoiriis is listed in the ICPA database of chiropractors certified in the proper performance of the Webster Technique. (www.icpa4kids.com)
