Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification.

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment, which reduces nerve system stress, and improves pelvic biomechanical function. Its purpose is to detect and correct Sacral Subluxation and S/I joint dysfunction. This technique is great for pregnant women with low back and hip pain.

Special attention is paid to mom’s pelvic alignment, utilizing the Webster Technique.

Patients receiving this kind of care report much shorter and easier delivery of their child, with fewer complications or need for forceps or suction devices during delivery.

Dr. Ashtiani is certified in Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
