As part of each expecting mother’s care program, Dr. Keri Freshour is certified to evaluate the pelvis using the Webster Technique. This is a specific analysis to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. By using this specific analytic method, it restores proper pelvic balance and function.
If the sacrum is misaligned, it can lead to dystocia or difficult labor process. Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of a sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
If the sacrum is misaligned, it can lead to nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.
These tense muscles and ligaments can have an aberent effect on the uterus and may prevent the baby from assuming comfortably the most optimal position for delivery. Pregnant mothers show a significant benefit to having their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing the benefits for mom and baby.
