When I do that, back pain and discomfort is and usually clears up."

This technique is specifically intended to assist women who learn they can be expecting to deliver a breech baby. Dr. Jeanne Ohm, a chiropractor from the Philadelphia area and executive coordinator and instructor for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, described the Webster technique: "It's a specific chiropractic adjustment that removes interferences of the nervous system, balances out pelvic muscles and ligaments, which in turn removes constraint from the woman's uterus and allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth."
The article closed with a statement from one of the chiropractors original patients. . Her comments about her results following a few treatments were, "In the morning, my back would hurt so bad it would be difficult to even walk," she stated. "Now it's not bad at all. I know for a fact this is helping."
