Webster Technique

What is Webster Technique?

Dr. Kekki is certified in Webster Technique, which is a combination of sacral analysis, chiropractic adjustment, ligament and muscle release to restore proper pelvic balance and function. This in turn, removes torsion to the women's uterus, decreasing constraint and allows the baby to move into the best position for birth.

In clinical and theoretical framework, it is proposed that sacral misalignment may cause the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.  It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus which may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.

Dr. Kekki has a specially designed table and pillow to allow the mother to be able to lay face down and face up to perform treatment. You will be comfortable for this brief period. Pre-natal massage is also often coupled with the Webster Technique where a special pregnancy pillow is also used to allow for the most comfortable position for mom-to-be. After performing the Webster Technique, Dr. Kekki may also offer acupuncture treatment if pertinent. It is recommended to help promote health and proper positioning of the fetus by performing the Webster Technique throughout pregnancy and also allowing a better delivery and recovery for mom after birth.

If you have learned that you have a breech presentation, Dr. Kekki will set a treatment plan with you based upon findings of your physical examination and number of weeks of gestation.
