The webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal is to address the following:
1: Power– When muscles and bones are working together properly mothers can expect increased strength and stamina when delivering their baby.
2: Passage-The Webster Technique looks at the bones and ligaments that attach the uterus to the pelvis. Through the muscle work and adjustments, the uterus will sit in the pelvis with a better posture. As the babies head descends, proper alignment will aid birth keeping the birth passage as wide as possible for birth.
3: Passenger-The uterus is a large and very strong muscle. The muscle fibers are orientated so that during contraction the baby is rotated clockwise. The technique aids the uterine contractions by keeping the uterus in proper posture.

Kinesio Taping ® / RockTape
These rehabilitative taping methods have been developed to provide bio-mechanical support while maintaining full range of motion. These methods also re-educate the neuromuscular system, enhance performance, prevent injury, and aid injury recovery. The tape can stay on the body up to 5 days and comes in many different styles and colors.
Graston Technique® effectively breaks down scar tissue and reduces inflammation that causes pain and restricted mobility. These stainless steel instruments comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction.The instruments enable clinicians to treat soft tissue lesions in a precise manner and with greater specificity. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.
