Abstract/Notes

Objective:  To describe the results from chiropractic care of a patient presenting with a breech pregnancy using the Webster Technique analysis with Activator Adjusting Instrument thrust.

Clinical Features:  A 30 year old woman in her 34th week of pregnancy with her second child presented for a regular chiropractic visit after having an ultrasound that determined the baby was in a breech position.  She had a previous cesarean section and was continuing chiropractic care with hopes of avoiding another cesarean section.  

Intervention and Outcome:  Webster Technique was used to analyze the patient and a light force adjusting instrument (Activator Adjusting Instrument) was used to administer an adjustment.  Trigger point therapy was also performed according to Webster protocol.   After three adjustments, the fetus moved from a breech position to a normal vertex or head down position.

Conclusion:  Webster Technique protocol while using the Activator Adjusting Instrument along with trigger point therapy was successful in decreasing sacral subluxation and the fetus assumed a normal vertex position according to a follow-up ultrasound.
