Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The chiropractic care of a patient presenting with breech pregnancy using the Webster Technique is described.

Clinical Features: A 37 year old woman pregnant 35 weeks with her third child presented into the office after discovering through ultrasound that the baby was in breech position. The patient stated she was looking for an alternative to having a cesarean section.

Interventions and Outcomes: Light-force, contact specific (Webster Technique) chiropractic adjustments were administered, as well as light effleurage trigger point therapy and home exercises. After five Webster Technique adjustments, the fetus turned from a frank breech position to a vertex, head-down position.

Conclusion: Chiropractic care was given for a breech pregnancy by utilizing Webster Technique. The ligamentous and musculoskeletal issues associated with the breech presentation were cleared in the patient. Pre and post ultrasounds confirmed the transition of the fetus from a breech to a vertex position.
