The Webster Technique

San Diego chiropractor, Dr. Steve Tullius, is Webster Technique certified and focused on the care of pregnant women and children. While he does care for entire families and adult individuals as well, his practice focus is upon this unique population because he believes it is crucial to maintain optimal neurological and structural balance throughout these important developmental periods for optimal health, function and well-being.

The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique that addresses neuromechanical imbalances of the sacrum and surrounding ligaments. These misalignments, known as subluxations, cause nervous system imbalance, stress and dysfunction and can impact the health, function, development and well-being of the individual.

While Dr. Tullius also employs various other chiropractic techniques to successfully address the subluxation wherever it is found in the spine, the Webster Technique is particularly helpful for pregnant women to ease neurological and ligament imbalance which may place considerable tension on the pregnant woman’s uterus.

There are many changes occurring in the body of a woman once she becomes pregnant. These shifts in body weight, center of gravity and ligament laxity make shifts in pelvic and spinal structure a common occurrence.

These ligaments attach directly from the uterus to the sacrum and pelvis. Rotational subluxation of sacrum may result in a tightening and torsion of the ligaments holding the uterus in place, contributing to abnormal tension in the uterus affecting labor progression, optimal fetal positioning and natural, non-invasive birth outcome.

Because the vital and delicate nervous system passes through the spinal column, proactively taking care of that system throughout your pregnancy with regularly scheduled chiropractic visits assists in giving you the foundation, support, and attention you need and deserve to help have the best pregnancy possible.

Because Dr. Tullius is focused on caring for women throughout their pregnancies, his office is especially equipped to safely care for the pregnant woman in a warm, caring environment.
