Webster Technique

webster-technique-1

ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) definition:

“The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.”

Chiropractors work with the body’s ability to adapt and function the way it is designed to. Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy and birth.

I started going to Dr. Nicole Jackson when I was about 24 weeks pregnant due to migraines that I couldn’t find a cure for. She is amazing and was able to stop my migraines after just a weeks worth of adjustments.

I continue to go for prenatal chiropractic work and it is amazing. I will keep seeing her 1-2 times a week until I give birth so that I and my baby can have the smoothest delivery possible. She is very knowledgeable and helpful with everything she knows and does for me!” Raymee Moore
