Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care
Americans go to a doctor for back pain more than for any other reason other than colds and flu.
According to Consumer Reports (2009) Doctors of Chiropractic were rated as the top practitioner for back pain, with survey respondents noting that they were more likely to be "highly satisfied" with the care received from their doctor of chiropractic (59 percent) than any other profession, including medicine, physical therapy, massage and acupuncture.
And chiropractic helps a lot of other problems, too! Problems like headaches (including migraine headaches) frequently improve with chiropractic care. Neck pain, upper back pain, carpal tunnel, TMJ disorders, numbness, pain or tingling in the arms, hands, legs and feet too. Plus, many seniors suffering with arthritis find that chiropractic is the quickest and best relief from pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.

The Webster Technique
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 neuro-biomechanics with this adjustment also frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning. There are cases published in the chiropractic literature that support this theory. More research is needed and is currently underway by the ICPA.
The theoretical and clinical framework of the Webster Technique in the care of pregnant women is that sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia). Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, baby mal-presentation and maternal emotions. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.
