Due to the hormones that are released during pregnancy, misalignments in the pelvis and sacrum are common. These misalignments can cause strain on pelvic muscles and ligaments which attach to the uterus. Such strain, called intrauterine constraint, can prevent the baby from getting into the best possible position for birth. What’s more, these misalignments may or may not cause discomfort.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that facilitates biomechanical balance in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. Achieving biomechanical balance can help to relieve the discomforts commonly associated with pregnancy and has been shown to reduce the effects of intrauterine constraint, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth. It is beneficial throughout pregnancy, and is especially helpful in the last trimester. Dr. Melissa (Stoos) Gilroy is certified in the Webster Technique and has a passion for working with pregnant moms.
