Dr. Gebaide is certified in Webster’s Technique!

Updated: Aug 29, 2023


The biggest honor I have is when an expectant mother chooses us for her chiropractic care. Our office has a special table and pillows to keep her and her beautiful belly comfortable during treatment. I am also certified in Webster’s Technique which is very effective in keeping the mom's sacrum and pelvis in proper alignment during pregnancy.


Chiropractic care is also very safe and effective to help with the aches and pains related to pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is helpful for headaches, sciatica, lower back pain, and pelvic pain (especially in the pubic symphysis). Instead of dealing with the pain or taking medications, give this a try.


A couple of frequently asked questions regarding this technique:


Is the Webster Technique safe?

Yes, this technique is very safe and is performed on pregnant women in all stages of pregnancy; including up to the day of delivery.


How do chiropractors turn a breech baby?

While we can't turn breech babies, what we can do is gently and specifically adjust a mother's spine and pelvis back into a proper balanced state, reestablishing normal physiological function.


Can Chiropractors adjust pregnant women?

To adjust pregnant women, we will use adjusting tables to accommodate their growing bellies using a technique that won't put pressure on their stomach. We can also show you effective stretches for relieving tension and easing discomfort.


Can Chiropractors adjust infants?

Yes, we have been known to successfully treat issues like trouble in latching or breastfeeding, treating an underdeveloped digestive system, acid reflux, misaligned spine, and ear pain/infection.


You may also be asking yourself, why do babies get adjusted?

This is a great question. Parents bring in their newborns because childbirth can be traumatic to a newborn. Especially with vacuum and forceps being used. C-section births can also cause trauma as well.


Here are some common signs that your baby needs an adjustment:

1) Head rotation to only one side.

2) Discomfort with sitting in a car seat or with certain positions.

3) Discomfort with tummy time.

4) Constipation/Persistent spitting up.

5) Difficulties with latching during feedings.
