Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the ICPA discovered this adjustment as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function. This specific sacral analysis can be used on all weight bearing individuals to determine sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

During birth, sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother. Sacral subluxation in pregnancy may also contribute to a less than ideal presentation of the baby. Difficult or slow progression of labor is also called dystocia. Dystocia may be caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these three causes of dystocia.

In this clinical and theoretical framework, it is proposed that sacral misalignment may contribute to these three primary causes of dystocia via uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment, and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvis muscles and ligaments.

Webster Technique Description

Webster technique is a very gentle technique of analysis and adjustment of the sacrum and pelvis. This technique can be used on any person, male or female. In applying the technique, "the patient" is face down. The examiner tests, by applying gentle pressure to each sacroiliac joint or bending the knees, to find which sacroiliac joint may be hypomobile or tight. Then a gentle adjustment is applied to appropriate joint. Then the mother may turn and lie on her back. The doctor may check for tightness of the round ligament of the uterus, then a gentle pressure may be applied for about a minute. When Webster Technique is applied to the sacrum and pelvis of a pregnant woman it may help to ease pain and may allow the baby to assume a more optimal birth position.
