Chi­ro­prac­tic Tech­nique Helps Turn Breech Babies Dur­ing Preg­nancy

A Novem­ber 7, 2001 report on a study con­ducted by the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tic Pedi­atric Asso­ci­a­tion showed that a chi­ro­prac­tic tech­nique known as the “Web­ster Breech Turn­ing Tech­nique” was sta­tis­ti­cally very suc­cess­ful in resolv­ing breech preg­nan­cies with­out med­ical pro­ce­dures. A Breech preg­nancy is when the baby is not prop­erly posi­tioned in the mother’s womb near the date for deliv­ery. If the baby is not posi­tioned head-​first, the deliv­ery may be dif­fi­cult or even dan­ger­ous for both the mother and child.

This chi­ro­prac­tic tech­nique was cre­ated by the late Dr. Larry Web­ster, who was affec­tion­ately known as “The grand­fa­ther of chi­ro­prac­tic pedi­atrics.” The study entailed sur­vey­ing mem­bers of the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tic Pedi­atric Asso­ci­a­tion, Inc (ICPAwww​.icpa4kids​.com) through­out the United States and Canada. The sur­vey noted that there were a reported 112 cases of breech recorded by the chi­ro­prac­tors. Of these, the results were 102 pos­i­tive res­o­lu­tions. This means that in 102 of 112 cases the baby turned prop­erly after the chi­ro­prac­tic pro­ce­dure was per­formed. This rep­re­sents a suc­cess rate of almost 92%!

The con­clu­sions of this study clearly stated, “When suc­cess­ful, the Web­ster Tech­nique avoids the costs and/​or risks of either, ECV, cesarean sec­tion or vagi­nal trial of breech. In view of these find­ings the Web­ster Tech­nique deserves seri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion in the health care man­age­ment of expec­tant moth­ers exhibit­ing adverse fetal presentation.”
