Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the outcome of chiropractic care using the Webster Technique on a pregnant female with breech presentation of fetus.

Clinical Features: A 25 year old female sought chiropractic care at 31 weeks gestation to avoid cesarean section due to breech presentation, which was confirmed by her Ob/Gyn. The patient also had low back pain that was exacerbated by the pregnancy.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was evaluated using Webster Technique protocol and was found to have sacro-iliac subluxations, as well as trigger points along the round ligament. Webster Technique was administered a total of two times to address subluxations and trigger points.  The fetus shifted from the breech position to transverse after the first visit.  After the second visit, the fetus shifted from transverse to vertex.  The patient continued to seek chiropractic care due to pregnancy related low back pain.

Conclusions: The patient avoided cesarean section and had an uncomplicated vaginal delivery following administration of the Webster Technique protocol.
