Webster's Technique

index Webster's Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment applied to pregant patients. Developed by Dr. Larry Webster and formerly called the Webster Breech Turning Technique, this particular chiropractic adjustment was classically used during the seventh through ninth months of pregnancy. It is primarily focused on women whose babies are presenting breech or transverse. Webster's Technique is now widely known by medical doctors and nurses as an excellent way to ensure there is no stress on the developing baby which allows for the proper positioning of the head for delivery. Doctors of Chiropractic reported an >85% success rate in its ability to balance pelvic structures and remove constraint to the woman's uterus therefore allowing the baby to turn into the vertex position.

Midwives around the country are hearing about this technique and seeking out chiropractors trained in its use. Alliances are forming in communities and both mothers and babies are spared the irreparable damage caused by the growing number of c-sections. Midwives are referring patients to chiropractors even before malpresentations are evident, and their practices are reaping the benefits of overall easier, safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.

Doctors trained through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association have learned how to apply this specific adjustment, along with other chiropractic techniques, to benefit the mother and baby throughout pregnancy. Because we are working specifically to balance pelvic muscles and ligaments with their adjustments, we are removing constraint to the woman's uterus. This allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth in a timely manner and the need for "crisis care" in the last couple of months of pregnancy is being eliminated.
