Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this case study is to discuss the outcome of a pregnant patient presenting with a frank breech fetal presentation undergoing chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 35-year-old multiparous female presented to the chiropractor at 34 weeks pregnant. A frank breech position of the fetus was confirmed with ultrasound by her obstetrician. The patient had a history of cesarean section and was seeking chiropractic care for vaginal birth after cesarean section.

Intervention and Outcomes: Over the course of two weeks, the patient was analyzed and adjusted utilizing Webster and Diversified techniques. The patient underwent four adjustments before reporting vertex positioning of the fetus confirmed by her obstetrician via ultrasound.

Conclusions: Chiropractic care in the form of Webster Technique on a pregnant patient with a frank breech presenting fetus later reported vertex positioning of the fetus following two weeks of care. The patient went on to have a successful, natural, vaginal birth process with no reported complications.  This is the patient’s second vaginal birth after cesarean delivery.
