Chiropractic Can Help You Have Better Delivery….
The functionality and ease movement in the SI joints is not just important for comfort during pregnancy but also in the birthing process. As the baby descends towards the birth canal it will pass through the boney ring structure of the pelvis. This boney ring is formed by 3 joints, at the back is the 2 SI joints and at the front the pubic symphysis. During this process, ease of movement of the sacrum and SI joints is so important to allow space for the baby to pass through. The sacrum will only be able to move as it needs to if the joints on either side (the SI joints) are balanced and mobile. Going into the birthing process with balance, mobility and ease of movement in the pelvic joints allows them to move as they need to and can result in a quicker labor and delivery.
What is the Webster Technique?
Dr. Trabulsi specializes in utilizing the Webster Technique. “The Webster technique is a specific Chiropractic analysis and adjustments that reduces interference to the nerve system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments. This in turn reduces torsion in the uterus, a cause of intra-uterine constraint of the baby and allows for optimal fetal positioning in preparation for birth” as defined by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) certification program. The technique uses a combination of gentle adjusting to balance the SI joints and gentle ligamentous trigger point work to reduce the tension, reduce the torsion and constraint in the uterus and allow for more room for the baby to move and better position itself.
