Fetal positioning is one of the most important elements of a healthy pregnancy
Chiropractic is an important aid for mothers seeking an easier pregnancy. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, we mitigate the severity of pain caused by minor discomforts that are so standard in pregnancy, including lower back pain and sciatica. During the first two trimesters, we help to create a nurturing environment for the child to grow. By maintaining pelvic balance and the proper alignment of the spine through the sacrum, we contribute to optimal space for the baby to develop and contribute to the best possible chance for a fetus to get in a conducive position for birth.
When childbirth approaches, fetal positioning becomes all the more important
It is estimated that 3-4% of babies present in the breech position prior to childbirth; the most common position, called Frank breech, finds the baby’s bottom down with legs pointing upward and feet near the head. Approaching delivery day with a baby in breech can make a normal birth difficult, if not impossible. The Webster Technique is a chiropractic movement that is tailor made for this situation.
- The Webster technique is a sacral adjustment that focuses on pelvic alignment and nervous system function.
- The Webster technique balances pelvic muscles and reduces intrauterine restraint, allowing for the best possible fetal positioning.
Similar techniques are used to treat pregnancies that are presenting in posterior or transverse positions.
