Daniel A Falk, DC & Robert A. Stinson, DC

Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - Chiropractic ~ Volume 2017 ~ Issue 2 ~ Pages 74-77



Abstract


Objective: To describe the outcomes in a patient presenting with a breech pregnancy following Webster Technique.

Clinical Features:
A 26-year-old female in her 27th week of pregnancy with her second child presented for a chiropractic visit after experiencing low back pain. One week later an ultrasound determined the baby was in a breech position. She had a previous natural birth with no complications and was beginning chiropractic care with hopes of avoiding a cesarean section.

Intervention and Outcome:
After 29 adjustments the fetus moved from a breech position to a normal vertex (or head down) position confirmed through ultrasound.

Conclusion:
Webster Technique protocol was successful in decreasing sacral subluxation and the fetus assumed a normal vertex position verified by ultrasound.

Key Words:
Subluxation, Webster’s Technique, pregnancy, breech presentation, chiropractic, adjustment
