webster technique concepts

 

it is important to recognize that doctors of chiropractic do not turn breech babies-that is the practice of obstetrics. doctors of chiropractic are trained to adjust the spine and pelvis when indicated. misalignments of the bones of the spine and pelvis may cause strain and uneven pulling of the attached pelvic muscles and ligaments.

the webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment and not a breech-turning technique. it finds the misalignments of the bones and balances the pelvic muscles and ligaments which helps eliminates torsion in the mother’s uterus. this reduces the potential of intrauterine constrain to the baby offering a greater opportunity for the baby to develop without constraint and get into the best possible position for birth. see this page and site for additional information: http://www.icpa4kids.org/about/webster_technique.htm

questions and answers:

can chiropractic help turn breech babies?

subluxations can happen in a pregnant women. this sometimes causes intrauterine constraint, resulting in a breech baby. intrauterine constraint is uterine muscles being tight and blocking the normal movement of the fetus. if the baby's movement is blocked then the baby can't turn to a normal head-down position. this could result in a breech birth.

while here at friedman chiropractic we believe pregnant mothers should be under care from day one. if your child has not turned head down by week 34, webster technique is a good non-invasive option to allow for a safer delivery.

as of june 2006, 20 patients with breech babies, during the 34-37weeks, of those 20, 13 turned head down. of the seven which didn’t turn, 2 had a septum in the uterus, 3 did not complete their care (only came for 1-2 visits) and 2 reported easy turning with version. the journal article below reports a 82% success rate.
