Do medical doctors refer to chiropractors?

Yes, there is a growing trend of obstetricians, pediatricians and family doctors referring patients for chiropractic care as they see the benefits of spinal adjustments. They recognize that this is out of the scope of their practice.

Are chiropractors anti-medical doctors? No, your family wellness chiropractor recognizes the important role that a medical doctor plays in your family’s health and believes in a team approach. When your son or daughter needs medical attention, that’s where your chiropractor will encourage you to go.

Are chiropractors anti-drug? No, but they recognize that a body that is functioning properly may not need drugs. The decision to use or discontinue medications or over-the-counter drugs is between the parent and their medical advisor.

What if my medical doctor tells me not to take my children to a chiropractor? Many obstetricians, pediatricians and family practitioners are beginning to see the benefits of chiropractic care for children, but there still are a great number of medical doctors that have not accepted the facts. For every doctor who tells you that chiropractic care is dangerous or a placebo for children, you’ll find a handful that will tell you that it’s perfectly safe and beneficial. The final decision is up to you.

The Webster Technique: A Chiropractic Technique with Obstetric Implications.
J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2002 Jul-Aug;25(6): E1-9

OBJECTIVE: To survey members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA); regarding the use of the Webster Technique for managing the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint, which may necessitate cesarean section. METHODS: Surveys were mailed to 1047 US and Canadian members of the ICPA. RESULTS: One hundred eighty-seven surveys were returned from 1047 ICPA members, constituting a return rate of 17.86%. Seventy-five responses did not meet the study inclusion criteria and were excluded; 112 surveys (11%) provided the data. Of these 112 surveys, 102 (92%) resulted in resolution of the breech presentation, while 10 (9%) remained unresolved. CONCLUSION: The surveyed doctors reported a high rate of success (82%) in relieving the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint using the Webster Technique. Although the sample size was small, the results suggest that it may be beneficial to perform the Webster Technique in month 8 of pregnancy, when breech presentation is unlikely to spontaneously convert to cephalic presentation and when external cephalic version is not an effective technique. When successful, the Webster Technique avoids the costs and/or risks of external cephalic version, 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.
