CASE STUDY

Abstract


Objective: To describe the care of a pregnant patient medically diagnosed with a breeched fetus and placenta previa.

 

Clinical Features: The patient is a 32 year old multi-parous woman in her 32nd week  of pregnancy.  She was referred for chiropractic care by her midwife and obstetrician after ultrasound imaging confirmed breech fetal positioning and placenta previa.  The consensus by both birthing professionals was that vaginal birth was unlikely. 

 

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with a combination of Diversified Technique and Webster Technique with successful outcomes. Comparative ultrasound imaging confirmed the breeched fetus assumed a vertex position with the placenta migrating to more than 3 cm away from the os of the cervix.

 

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic as described in the care of a pregnant woman.
