Webster Technique - Safe and Effective for Pregnant Women
Dr. Angie Recendez is Webster Certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This specific chiropractic approach has been proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women. The Webster Technique enables balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduces undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care is especially important for a pregnant woman if a spinal and pelvic misalignment is present. This is because the pelvis is misaligned or shifted which may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint.
With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth avoiding the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) resulting in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.
