Prenatal Care

A large percent of all pregnant women experience back discomfort and/or pain during pregnancy, though all pregnant mamas can benefit from Chiropractic Care! The common discomfort is due to the rapid growth of the baby and interference’s to your body’s normal structural adaptations to that growth.

Webster Technique

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment of the sacrum that corrects or improves the neuro-muscular imbalance in the pelvis thus increasing the potential for safer, easier births. Adjusting the sacrum via Webster analysis and working with the round ligament throughout pregnancy may minimize aberrant uterine tension, potential fetal constraint and possible malposition at the time of delivery. The Webster Technique was created over 30 years ago by a chiropractor named Dr. Larry Webster, DC. Due to the empirical observations that pregnant woman under chiropractic care with breech fetal pregnancies were reporting correction of fetal position to vertex following the use of the Webster Technique, the Webster Technique was described in its early days as a “breech turning technique”. The Webster Technique is a safe, gentle, effective technique used on all of the pregnant patients at our office. Both Dr. Lash and Dr. Stalmack have been certified in the technique.
