Objective: The purpose of this paper is to report the positive health outcomes experienced by five women with breech presentations that resolved following chiropractic adjustments using the Webster Technique.

Clinical features: Five women between the ages of 24 and 40 presented to a chiropractic office with pregnancy related pain and breech presentations ranging from 30 to 36 weeks gestation.

Interventions and outcomes: Webster technique was administered to correct sacral subluxations. Ultrasounds confirmed normal vertex positions within 10 adjustments (with 5.8 adjustments being the average). All five women went on to have normal vaginal deliveries.

Conclusion: We describe the positive health outcomes confirmed by ultrasound of five women with breech presentations where vertex positions were assumed following chiropractic care. Additional positive health outcomes included decreased back, pelvic and head pain.
