Publication Type Case Report

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

Clinical Features:  A 35 year old woman presented to the office during the 30th week of her second pregnancy after her doula determined that the fetus was in breech position.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was evaluated via Webster Technique which revealed a sacral subluxation and trigger points along the round ligament.  She was adjusted using a drop mechanism table followed by effleurage trigger point therapy and home exercises.  After four adjustments the fetus was determined to have turned from transverse breech to vertex position.  She reported a successful vaginal birth.

Conclusion: Chiropractic care was administered to a pregnant patient with a breech presentation using the Webster Technique.  Post ultrasound confirmed the vertex position and cesarean section was avoided.
