Dr. Moshe Laub is a certified Webster Technique Practitioner. He has been involved in the research and treatment of Lower Back Pain and Pregnancy since 1985. As both a Chiropractic Physician and a Physical Therapist, he provides the most effective care due to his extensive experience in both fields, for women's health, pregnancy, and postpartum-related conditions. Most of his pregnant patients are referred by their OBGYN Physicians, Midwives, Doulas, friends, and family members. The Webster Technique is defined by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association as "a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of subluxation and/or SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro- biomechanical function in the sacral/ pelvic region is improved."
The ICPA recognizes that in a theoretical and clinical framework of the Webster Technique in the care of pregnant women, sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia). Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal- presentation. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
In this clinical and theoretical framework, it is proposed that sacral misalignment may contribute to these three primary causes of dystocia via uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. The resulting tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth."
The Webster Technique is one of the safest and most effective chiropractic techniques to offer the best environment possible for the unborn baby in the uterus. Meanwhile, Dr. Laub practices many other safe and gentle techniques that benefit both the mother and baby before and after birth, including CranioSacral, Activator Methods, Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), and Logan Basic. Working with pregnant women and their newborns has always been a special love for Dr. Laub. He never ceases to be amazed by Chiropractic's ability to help the body's innate ability to heal at all ages and stages of life!
