The Webster Technique is a type of chiropractic adjustment for pregnant mothers. More specifically, it is a sacral analysis and adjustment that reduces the effects of sacral subluxation. In other words, the function of the pelvis is enhanced.
This technique helps mothers with labor difficulty caused by less than optimal uterine function, malpresentation, and pelvic contraction. These are all symptoms of sacral subluxation.
Ultimately, the Webster Technique can help promote a safer, more comfortable birth. This is an attractive option to families for obvious reasons, and it is something that many mothers have benefited greatly from.
Graston Soft Tissue Technique
The Graston Technique is essentially a type of therapy that uses instruments to assist in the mobilization of soft tissues of the body. It is a very popular technique that gives patients a great deal of relief.
The Graston Technique works by breaking down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are created by trauma to the soft tissue. This can be the result of strained muscles or pulled tendons.
It also reduces restrictions by elongating connective tissue. This effectively changes the structure of the tissue in order to improve function.
If you are curious about The Graston Technique, please reach out to us today. We would be happy to speak with you and discuss the many benefits of this technique.
