Objective: The chiropractic care of a woman with a breech pregnancy using the Webster

Technique is described.


Clinical Features:  A 35 year old woman presented to the office during the 30th week of her

second pregnancy after her doula determined that the fetus was in breech position. 


Intervention and Outcome: The patient was evaluated via Webster Technique which revealed a

sacral subluxation and trigger points along the round ligament.  She was adjusted using a drop

mechanism table followed by effleurage trigger point therapy and home exercises.  After four

adjustments the fetus was determined to have turned from transverse breech to vertex position. 

She reported a successful vaginal birth.


Conclusion: Chiropractic care was administered to a pregnant patient with a breech presentation

using the Webster Technique.  Post ultrasound confirmed the vertex position and cesarean

section was avoided. 


Key Words:  Chiropractic, Webster Technique, pregnancy, breech presentation, intrauterine
