Webster Technique is a chiropractic adjustment developed by Dr. Larry Webster that focuses on the alignment of the sacrum and round ligament in pregnant women. While this technique is strongly beneficial for helping out with low back pain, this is not the only reason a pregnant woman should come in for care. By ensuring that the womb is free and clear of any restrictions that surround it, the baby has more room to grow, better neurological output, and is able to position itself optimally for the birthing process. While a baby will always intuitively position itself in the safest position for birth, it is best to ensure that the restrictions of the hips are addressed in order to create the optimal birth environment for the baby to thrive.
A chiropractor is a doctor who works with the nervous system through the use of a chiropractic adjustment. Many people seek out chiropractic care to alleviate symptoms of pain or discomfort, but the truth is, chiropractors only remove interference to the nervous system through the adjustment. A side effect of the adjustment can be the relief of symptoms simply because the nervous system is better able to communicate to the rest of the body without that interference post adjustment. This will then stimulate the healing response system of the entire body.
By adjusting infants and children, parents can give them an advantage in the future by reducing the amount of scar tissue that will form around these areas of interference. This helps a child grow equally on each side of the body by ensuring that the nervous system is communicating properly to the whole body as they grow. We have also listed many reasons on Why would a new born baby need chiropactic care?
10 common reasons parents bring their children to see a chiropractor:
- Maximize the child’s neural plasticity (brain & nerve development and learning).
- Enhance the child’s overall health and well being.
- Strengthen immunity and reduce the incidence of colds, ear-aches and general illness.
- Help with colic and Irritable Baby Syndrome.
- To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
- To improve spinal posture.
- To improve their child’s ability to concentrate.
- To assist with behavioral disorders and enhance emotional well being.
- To help alleviate digestive problems.
- To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.

Hey guys! I just wanted to share a story with you today about how chiropractic should always be the first line of defense. That’s what our first line of defense is in our family when we’re treating anything, and I just wanted to share the story of our third child’s birth. This was a very stressful birth. It was very quick, about four hours total. And throughout the whole process, we learned so much from it about how we want to do things in our family.
So, when we arrived at the birthing center, our third child came within 25 minutes. Her head was smashed kind of like a taco and she was not receiving a lot of oxygen when she was first born. She was very purple, and that kind of frightened us. The only thing I could think of to do at the time was to grab her top bone. I had just taken a seminar on adjusting infants, and so I grabbed that bone and I just held it there. I could feel it slide into place underneath my fingers, and all of a sudden, I saw her pinking up to the way that she was supposed to look.
It was this experience that really drove home that whole first line of defense, as far as natural medicine goes, for us and our family. We always start with adjusting any time our kids are sick, we increase nutrition, and we do things along those lines to support our kids and help them get better. This is not to say that chiropractic is the end all be all. Of course, in the case of our third child, she had a lot of issues retaining fluid in her lungs for several weeks postpartum. She had some mild childhood asthma that was difficult for her to overcome. We did have to use albuterol inhalers, and these kinds of things with her to get her back on track. But the main thing for her was her cranial bones were really misplaced. They had a lot going on because her head was shaped like a taco when she came out. This is something that we worked on for about three months postpartum. It wasn’t until we cleared these fixations that she started to actually get better and her lungs started to clear out and stay cleared out.
We certainly struggled with RSV, and had to put her on an albuterol inhaler which is super hard to do with an infant. But these are all things that we started with the most natural treatment and then moved forward to a more invasive type of thing. When it comes to illness with our kids, anytime they get sick, we start with adjusting and nutrition and when those things don’t work, we move on to medicine and those types of things.
I just wanted to share a little bit about our experiences. I feel like it was a very powerful thing for us to experience. With our third child we were already really into chiropractic and starting with the natural means first, but this experience certainly drove it home for us how important it is to clear out musculoskeletal problems first. I see a lot of kids in our clinic all the time that are coming in with chronic ear infections, and things of this nature are more musculoskeletal than they are a medical problem. Tube failures, all of these things happen in the medical community, so our goal as chiropractors is to see if there is a neuromusculoskeletal problem first, fix those fixations, and then move on if that is not effective. I sure wish that more people would use chiropractic as a first line of defense rather than the last resort
My niece has a colicky baby at home and I told her I was going to make her a video. But I figured I would just make one for everybody to help out with things you can do at home to help with colicky babies. The first thing I will generally check on a baby is this low back area here. Really colicky babies tend to have a lot of tension in this low back area. This is, let’s pretend, like the tailbone so this is like that low back area they tend to have a lot of tension right in there. Just massaging very lightly you don’t have to use a lot of pressure but you can use a little cream and just kind of rub the spine up and down. It feels really good for the baby, but it also helps to relax some of the muscles along the spine and allows the pressure of the baby’s belly being pressed into the table help move some gas out.
I also place a pinky here, so if you have your tailbone, here there’s another little teeny tiny bone and I just kind of come somewhere right in between the two and I’ll just place a pinky. You know you’re in the right spot when the baby kind of pushes down into it because it feels really good, this is the Sacro tuberous ligament that you’re pressing on. And that just kind of places pressure on them on the pelvic floor and some of those areas around the sacrum, and that just helps everything kind of settle. Babies will generally calm down quite a bit with this spot, so those are two areas I look for.
When the baby is face-up, you have their hip bone here and their belly button here. Somewhere in between, right in the center, you can place pinky pressure here. Sometimes you’ll feel a little valve underneath your finger spasming. Sometimes with colicky babies those belts are trying to form, and in the process they’ll spasm quite a bit while they’re trying to learn how to open and close. So if you just hold some really light pressure there and just allow it to spasm a little bit and calm down, that’s what you’re looking for. There’s another available on the other side. You just come right in between the belly button and hip bone, and you can place a little pressure there.
So, all that is really helpful for those colicky babies if you’ve got a really fussy baby that is just constantly crying. They have to be really small, like we’re talking newborn to a month old, fold their hands over and hold their head and bounce them around so their hands and fingers are holding kind of like that face area. Then the rest of your hand is holding their hands just across their chest. You can bounce them like this and you can kind of rotate this part around as you’re bouncing to kind of help that stomach just release and calm down. This is a very calming position for the baby, they almost instantly will stop crying if they’re real fussy so you can just kind of bounce them around and do a little figure 8 movement down here. That’ll just help settle that belly and allow that baby to relax a little bit. With massage, real light pressure is great I mean babies just love to be touched and held and be close to their mothers. Those are some tips I have for a really fussy colicky baby.
