Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a pregnant woman with low back pain and leg pain concomitant with a breeched fetus.

Clinical Features:  A 24-year-old, multi-gravid female sought chiropractic care at 37 weeks gestation with a chief complaint of low back pain and left leg pain as well as the desire for a natural childbirth. The breech fetus was diagnosed at 36 weeks gestation via ultrasound imaging.

Intervention and Outcomes: Chiropractic care administered over 2 visits using the Webster Technique resulted in the baby assuming the vertex position as imaged on ultrasound. The patient continued chiropractic care with the Webster Technique to address pelvic bowl dysfunctions over a total of 9 visits with positive outcomes.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence that pregnant patients may derive benefits from chiropractic care with and beyond their pregnancy-related musculoskeletal complaints.

Author Keywords: Webster Technique, vertebral subluxation, breech, pregnancy, chiropractic, low back pain
