     The Webster Technique - A Safe and Gentle Chiropractic Approach for Pregnancy

    Dr. Tim Nicholl is certified in The Webster Technique by the ICPA.   According to the ICPA website:

    “The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant mothers. Working to correct sacral subluxations, this technique balances pelvic muscles and ligaments in the woman's pelvis, removes constraint and allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth. Because of its ability to facilitate easier, safer deliveries for both the mother and baby, many birth care providers are actively seeking Doctors of Chiropractic with the skills in this technique”.
