Pregnancy chiropractic is well known for its role in mitigating the discomforts of pregnancy including back pain and sciatica. But fewer people are aware that chiropractic is one of the foremost techniques for resolving problems with fetal positioning in the penultimate period before delivery. By focusing on balancing joints of the lower back and alignment of the pelvis, we are able to help women with pregnancies who are suffering from the breech presentation. Let's find out more about how this works:
The Webster technique is a well-renowned chiropractic modality that has helped thousands of mothers get their child into the proper, head-first birthing position. It is a sacral adjustment that improves alignment of the pelvis, which is destabilized by pregnancy hormones and the shifting body weight. By correcting alignment in the lower back and pelvis, the supporting musculature is also rebalanced, causing less stress (known in this case as torsion) on the uterus. This allows room and encourages the baby to change into the proper head-first position, whether it be from breech, posterior or transverse positions.
