Abstract/Notes

Objective: To contribute to evidence-based practice, the use of Webster Technique is characterized in a chiropractic practice-based research network.

Methods: In an exploratory study, we sought data from pregnant subjects under chiropractic care that included their sociodemographic information, previous prenatal care and abnormal fetal positioning prior to after care with the Webster Technique.

Results: A convenience sample of 81 pregnant women receiving chiropractic care comprised the study subjects. The average age of the patients was 32.4 years. Previous or concurrent care included external cephalic version, slant board, acupuncture, moxabustion, homeopathy and various forms of exercises. Based on 63 of the 81 subjects, we found 70% of the subjects with abnormal fetal pregnancies reporting a correction to the vertex position.

Conclusion: The preliminary results of our study contributes to evidence-based practice that pregnant women with abnormal fetal positions may derive benefits from chiropractic care using the Webster Technique.
