Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification. Dr. Judge holds this certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
Children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.
What is the Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic pelvic analysis and adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of joint dysfunction. In doing so, proper biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.
Pelvic imbalance may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correcting this may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
