Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Webster Technique

Webster Technique Orange CT

Dr. David Durso has received advanced training and is certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific analysis and adjustment used specifically for pregnant mothers.

Dr. Larry Webster, Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. Dr. Webster reported that when a mother sought care and her baby was in a breech position, the restoration of pelvic neuro-biomechanics with this adjustment also frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning.  This chiropractic technique helps to correct sacral misalignment, balance pelvic muscles and ligaments which in turn removes twisting to the woman’s uterus, its resulting constraint to the baby, and allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

The theoretical and clinical framework of the Webster Technique in the care of pregnant women is that sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia). Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. The correction of sacral subluxation can have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia. 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.

There are cases published in the chiropractic literature that support this theory. In fact, several studies have shown that, “when successful, the Webster Technique avoids the costs and risks of cesarean section or vaginal trial of breech. In view of these findings, the Webster Technique deserves serious consideration in the management of expectant mothers exhibiting adverse fetal presentation.” In this age of skyrocketing Cesarian deliveries, the Webster technique is emerging as a safe, effective and non-invasive way for safer, easier births.
