Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the results obtained in three women with breech presentations (In-Utero Constraint) who experienced a turning of the fetus using the Activator Adjusting Instrument (AAI) in conjunction with the Webster's Protocol.

Clinical Features: Three women presented to the author's office specifically for reduction of In Utero Constraint and were found to have subluxations consistent with the Webster analysis and protocol.

Interventions and Outcomes: Webster's Technique was administered with the sacral component completed using the Activator adjusting instrument. Each fetus successfully turned within 4 visits. Of the three, two went on to have normal vaginal deliveries while one developed other complications during delivery and required an emergency C-section.

Conclusion: The Activator Adjusting Instrument was used successfully in these cases to reduce the posterior sacral subluxation component of the Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique.
