The official description of the Webster Technique:
“The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.”
This technique, developd by Dr. Larry Webster, is an adjustment to the tailbone and pelvis that provides balance to the ligaments and symmetry to the pelvis. As this happens, many babies that are in a breech or transverse position, will return to the cephalic position.
Both Dr. Steph and Dr. Murdock are very experienced in the Webster technique and have seen it help many women in our community.
