Turning a Breech Baby with Chiropractic Care

The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of pelvic joint dysfunction. In so doing bio-mechanical function in the pelvis is improved.

Webster TechniqueDr. Larry Webster discovered this adjustment as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function. This specific sacral analysis can be used on all weight bearing individuals to determine pelvic subluxation and is therefore applicable for the entire population. Common symptoms include: low back pain, sciatic neuralgia, and symptoms associated with pelvic subluxation.

Due to the asymmetry in the pelvis resulting in tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.

In regards to pregnant mothers, Dr. Webster reported that when a mother sought care and her baby was in a breech position, the restoration of pelvic biomechanics with this adjustment also frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning.

Studies have shown that correct positioning of the baby will affect birth outcome and decrease the potential for undue stress to the baby’s developing spine and nerve system. Peer reviewed articles have also determined the importance of normal pelvic bio-mechanics including uterine function and pelvic alignment for the prevention of difficult birth. It has also determined that correct positioning of the baby affects birth outcome and decreases the potential for undue stress to the baby’s developing spine and nerve system. Chiropractic case studies have determined the significance of sacral adjustments in normalizing pelvic bio-mechanics.

It is therefore considered prudent that this specific sacral analysis and adjustment be used throughout pregnancy to detect and alleviate sacral imbalance and optimize pelvic bio-mechanics in the mother. Because of the particular female adaptations from the increase of hormones, weight gain and postural changes, pregnant mothers have a greater chance of sacral subluxation and bio-mechanical imbalance than the general population. Additionally, because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers may have significant benefit by having their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
